I am seeking information on N.T. Forthun (born 1868-1870, in MN) who lived in Beltrami County circa 1899-1910. Nels T. Forthun married Sarah B. Preston in Hennepin County, MN, circa 1898. I believe he may also have been known as Nick or N.T. Forthun, who homesteaded in 1899 in Beltrami County. He also operated the Buena Vista Stockyard in the earlier 1900's, & possibly a hotel near Black Duck, MN. He & his wife had a daughter, Myrtle, born Aug. 1999 in MN. I am trying to determine if he is my great-uncle Nels T. Forthun, and can find no reference of him after 1904. It appears that Sarah Forthun & her daughter were living in Oregon in 1910, but he does not appear with them on the Census. I would appreciate any information about this man, the stockyard, the hotel, etc.
