Looking for infomation on Chris/Christopher, possibly Christian Canton and his wife Mathilda/Matilda {Dahl}Canton.
Chris J. Canton was born Sept.2,1890 in Appleton, WI. His parents were Peder Canton & Ingeborg Neilsen.
In his death cert. it mentions his wife as being Florence Canton. Possible he remarried after 1st wife died.
He died Feb. 3,1972.
His wife Matilda was born Sept. 17,1887 in Blair,WI. Her parents were Syver & Karen {Sletten}Dahl.
She died Apr. 23,1962.
Chris & Matilda are buried in Cushing cemetery, Cushing.MN.
I am told they had many children, possibly up to 16.
I am trying to find their names. Four of them are:
1.Sophia-dob 1910 in Wis.
2.Ernest-dob 1915 in Wis.
3.Irene- dob- abt. 1912 in MN.
4. Lucy- dob-abt. 1919 in MN.
These 4 children were found in 1920 census fro Morrison co. MN. I know they lived in Minneapolis in 1947.
Thanks for any help.
