I am researching g. grandparents MAYER, Charles J. and Louisa who supposedly lived in Herman, Minnesota around 1885-1890. I can't find them on the 1885 census in Grant County. Since Herman is close to Stevens County, I wondered if there is any record of them there.

I am looking for information on Hans and Mary BERG that lived in the Morris, MN area around the 1880's. They moved there from Norway and had 4 children. Hannah, Martin, Siena, and Ida. Both Siena and Ida are also deceased, probably buried in the same cemetery as Hans and Mary. I would like to find any information on the family that is available, including where buried if possible. The children went to Morris high school.
