Hi Gearld,

I hope you're still looking. In my search for family I came across Elizabeth Pelkey b. around 1850.
She married Peter Bisiar who was born around 1846 in Belle Prairie, Morrison, Mn. I think they are
my gg-grandparents. They had three children, twin girls, Carrie Elizabeth and Carolina Elizabeth
b. May 20, 1872. Their son Leon Paul was b. Aug. 20, 1875. All three children were born in Belle
Prairie, Morrison, Mn.

Leon m. Ellen Vail (date unknown) and they had three daughters. Margaret, Emma and my grand-
mother Helen b. Feb. 20, 1895.

Carrie married Lester Louis Giles July 23, 1889 in Brainerd Crow Wing Mn. If you look on a map you'll
see these places are close together. Go north of Minneapolis just past Little Falls and you're there.

Bisiar is a very uncommon name so we may be connected. I have more info but I'm waiting for copies
of death certificates before I start saying yes I'm sure.

I'll let you know in a couple of weeks. Happy hunting, Mary
