Kim - If your offer is still good I would like for you to look up my SMITH family. They resided in Staples. William B Smith obtained a homestead in Cass County early 1892 and from there they moved to Staples, Todd County. William died in 1902. He actually died at his son's home in Little Falls and was taken back to Staples and is buried in Evergreen Hill Cemetery. His sons were Adolphus, Casar, Irus, Edgar, and Valmer. His daughters were Sarah (Mrs George Goold), Florence (Mrs Adna Hall), and Francis (Mrs John Dexter).
Any help that you can give me will be very much appreciated.
