My father's name was William Charles Gregerson,born 07/20/1922, in St John, N.Dakota, son of Ole Gregerson, born 06/12/1884(?), and Gertrude Rosella Givens, born 12/22/1901.
These family names are all common to me, although I do not have much info as to our connection. I have heard that Gertrude's parents were from France and Belguim. Also, that Gertrude had a brother or another sibling. Any info would be much appreciated.
Ole Gregerson's family moved to Washington state during the depression and lived in Monroe, WA, during which time Ole was a powder monkey for the WPA. Gertrude had a nervous breakdown, shortly after her 10th child was born in 1938. She was hospitalized at Western State Psychiatric Hospital and died there in 1942 or 1943 while my father William was in the South Pacific fighting during WWII.
Any information would be appreciated.
Thanks, Connie Jean Gregerson
