Re: Caledonia, MN 1862 - Palen Brothers

I am looking for information on Abraham G. Palen, who married my great aunt (Anna Morgan) in MN on August 18, 1879. I read a message posted here in 1999 by Sally Frederick Cook, in which she mentions 5 sons of Josef Palen who settled in Caledonia,Houston Co., MN in 1862. I suspect Abraham G Palen was a son of one of these 5.

We also have a record of Lee P Palen, who moved to the west coast to the same town (Spokane,WA) where my great aunt (Anna Palen) spent her final years. I don't know her relationship to Lee, but he died in Spokane on July 23, 1906 and was buried in Caledonia,MN, by the orders of Antone Palen of Caledonia,MN.

Sally's e-mail address is not working for me. Sally, if you are out there, or if anyone is out there that has any clues to these Minnesota Palens, I would appreciate hearing from you.
