See William C. Sherman, Prairie Mosaic: An Ethnic Atlas of Rural North Dakota (Fargo, N.Dak.: North Dakota Institute for Regional Studies, 1983), which will be most helpful, as will Northwestern Gazetteer: Minnesota, North and South Dakota and Montana Gazetteer and Business Directory (St. Paul: R. L. Polk and Co., 1914).
