Hi Kevin,

I have just read your post Jorgensens from Luck, Wisconsin.
What a small world.
You listed my mother's mother Leta Jorgensen.
I like to call her lucky Leta ;).
Anyway Leta died back in the late 70's.
She is buried in Minneapolis, MN.
Senile dementia, and complications.

Her Husband was Eddie H. Olson, Born in Menomonie Wi, died in 1980.
He is buried in the Veterans Cemetery in Minneapolis.
She had 2 duaghters, Shirley Ann Olson, married and living in San Diego CA, and Marion Leta Olson, married and living around Brainerd MN.

My brother, sister and I used to visit them in Luck, in the 60's before they moved to Minneapolis.
Now I work with the National Weather Service, and drive in an out of Luck WI 2 or 3 times a year. I think there are still a few Jorgensen relatives in Luck, although my mother Marion is more aware of them.

Iím not sure what you need to know about them but, I will try and connect with them later this summer to help you fill in a few blanks, if possible.

You can email me at rosscarlyon@hotmail.com

Good luck ;).
Ross
