BUSH posted by Dianne L. Bush on Monday, October 5, 1998
Email: ldlbsh@sunlink.net

Dr. Henry Harrison BUSH. Have you heard any information on a young son of his that was supposed to have gone out after the cows, and didn't find them. Returned home only to be told to go back out and don't come back until you find them. The boy never returned home. The next Spring they found his remains by a log. Only some clothing and buttons remained. He froze to death. This is what I was told and they were supposed to be living at Rush City at the time. I believe the boys name may have been George Washington Bush and I think his birth date may have been Aug.24,1855. Now there are conflicting reports on his age. Some have said he was 7 yrs. old and some say he was 15 yrs old when he died. If you can help with this I would be very happy to hear from you. Dr. Bush was my husband's Great Grandfather.

FALK posted by Steve Anderson on Saturday, May 16, 1998
Email: sanderson@net999.com

I'm descended from Jonus Peter FALK, b. 1793 Hovmantorp, Sweden d. 1881, buried Glader cemetery. He arrived in MN from Sweden 1861 with two daughters, Eva Charlotte and Hannah Mathilda. I would like any info, or source referrals you can provide. I am looking in particular for copy of now out of print "History of Chisago County", which I'm told includes material on Jonus and other family members. Most other FALK's arriving Chisago in that era were related to Jonus, from Hovmantorp.  Regards...

FALK posted by Sandy Hjelmberg. on Saturday, May 16, 1998
Email: sandyj@aol.com

Looking for information about the children of Jonas Petter FALK. History of Chisago County indicates that Andrew Falk (b.1847 d. 1896) may have been his son. Andrew married Emma Smith daughter of John Smith. I believe Andrew to be part of a different Falk family but because of the confusing name changes need information confirming that he is not the son of Jonas. Andrew was my great grandfather. Any information is appreciated.
