I am searching for any information relating to ANY of the early/middle pioneer families (1860-1920) of Radersburg and the Crow Creek Valley, eastern Jefferson County (present day Broadwater County), Montana Territory to compliment a family/local history that I am writing. Anything in the way of copies of early documents, copies of: bibles, family histories early maps or letters recounting early day events of the people, and especially pictures of the area or the people who lived there. MOST ESPECIALLY, PICTURES OF RUBEN RADER, THE FOUNDER OF RESERSBURG, OR HIS FAMILY. The names I am most interested in are, Williams, Hargrove, Henson,Jenkins, Sites, Rader, Hossfeld/Hossfeldt, Holdaway, McKay, Leary, and Sherlock.
I am also interested in communicating with any of the descendants of these or any other of the early day families that settled the area.
Thank you for your time and interest.
