Queries for Scott County will be posted here. Please send them to me via e-mail, but try to keep them short and to the point, possibly 50 words or less.

Eugene Barnes has submitted two homestead patent records for a Comfort Barnes Sr., and Comfort Barnes Jr., dated March 19, 1837, and a Franklin Wasson, dated April 2, 1857 and October 30, 1857. These were sent to him by a former Minnesota resident but after receiving them Eugene realized they were not related to his family. Eugene has sent copies of the certificates to me and I will gladly forward them to anyone who can prove relationship. Please e-mail me at schumanC@comcast.net

I'm trying to find information on my father's sister, Geraldine "Gerry" Jean VIERLING.  She married twice.  1) Joseph PACHECO-they had five children.  I don't know the name of her second husband.  She was born May 1928 in Shakopee and died abt. 1968.  I haven't been able to locate her death cert. because she may have died in Los Angeles or San Francisco CA or Hawaii.  I'm hoping to possibly locate an old friend of hers.  Lorri Hill larooh@hotmail.com
