I know this is an old posting but I just saw it and will answer anyway. I am one of the North Dakota clan. I see some reference to Alfred(Bud) and Nora. My grandpa and him were brothers. As far as I know My great grandpa(Hobart) and a bunch of brothers and sisters, and parents came to ND about 1885 from Dingmans Ferry, Pennsylvania. The only one I know who really nknows the history is a daughter of Bud and Noras.I haven,t seen her in a while but will stop and see her someday. Shes got a very good memory and likes talking about that kind of stuff. Kathy if you still watch this website let me know what you would like to learn and I will help you.
