Hello, I am not related. Maybe you can look again in Beltrami County, Minnesota or Towner County, North Dakota.

It looks like Myrl and her adoptive parents were living in Beltrami County, Minnesota during the 1905 state census. It also looks like Myrl was listed in the hospital in St. Paul for the same year.

I couldn't find Harry & Mryl in the 1910 census either, but they may have been moving from North Dakota back to Minnesota during that time before going to Washington.

I found Alonzo & May in Beltrami County during 1910, 1920, & 1930 census. Harry & Myrl had a son Charles N. Sanders who was born 28 Feb 1910 in Cando, ND. In the 1920 census, Charles is living with his "grandparents" Alonzo & May. He is still living with them in 1930 as an adopted son.

Hope this helps. RP.

Extracted from "The Missoulian," published at Missoula, Montana. Online edition, March 16, 2000:


MISSOULA - Charles Nobel Sanders, 90, was promoted to his eternal home on Wednesday, March 15, 2000, at St. Patrick Hospital.

He was born on Feb. 28, 1910, in Cando, N.D., to Harry and Myrl Sanders. Charles moved with his family to Solway, Minn., where he spent his younger years on a farm. Charles also worked in the woods cutting timber, as a mechanic and later became a machinist. He attended a rural one-room schoolhouse that had all eight grades. Charles was the oldest of seven children, having four brothers and two sisters.

On Aug. 23, 1933, he was united in marriage to Elizabeth "Betty" Marks in Solway. They have been happily married and blessed of God to have shared 66 1/2 years together.

Charles enjoyed the outdoors, fishing, hunting and hiking in the woods and mountains. He loved to play the guitar and violin and sing gospel songs.

Charles retired in 1973 from a large naval ordinance shop in Minneapolis and moved to Missoula to live. They enjoyed spending several winters in Southern California and Arizona in their RV.

His priority in life was faithfully attending church; he served as an elder for many years and taught Sunday school. He had been a member of the Missoula Alliance Church for the past 26 years. We who knew him are so grateful for the kind of person he was when God called him home. Charles was a loving husband, a faithful Christian, a respected workman and a delightful friend.

Charles was preceded in death by his father and mother, four brothers and two sisters.

He is survived by his loving wife Elizabeth. two nieces, one nephew and a host of friends.

Visitation will be held on Friday, March 17, from 4-7 p.m. at Garden City Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, March 18, at 2 p.m. at the Missoula Alliance Church (100 East Foss Court) with burial to follow at Sunset Memorial Cemetery. There will be a reception following the committal services at the church.

In lieu of flowers it is requested that memorials be made to the Missoula Alliance Church for the building of the new sanctuary.

Funeral arrangements are under the care and direction of Garden City Funeral Home and Crematory.

MISSOULA - Elizabeth Gertrude “Betty” Sanders of Missoula went to be with her Lord and Savior on Wednesday, July 29, 2009, and with her beloved husband Charles, who passed away in 2000 at age 90.

Betty was born August. 7, 1916, to James and Mabel (Haug) Marks of Felton, Minn. They later moved to Solway, Minn., where Betty grew up with three sisters and two brothers on the family farm and also attended school there. She worked as a housekeeper and babysitter before marrying Charles Noble Sanders, also of Solway, on August. 23, 1933. They lived in Solway for one year before moving to Snohomish, Wash., where Charles worked as a logger, farmhand and auto mechanic. After four years they returned to Solway, and Charles learned the machinist trade in nearby Bemidji during World War II. They moved to Crookston, Minn., and then to Minneapolis, where they lived until 1973. They retired to Missoula, where they belonged to the Missoula Alliance Church. Betty entered Bee Hive Homes in 2006.

While she and Charles were not blessed with children of their own, Betty loved children. She taught Sunday School, babysat and helped with youth events at her church. Betty participated in Bible studies, corresponded with missionaries and actively served the church wherever she lived. She also took pleasure in gardening, hiking in the mountains and fishing. In the early years of their retirement, she and Charles enjoyed spending several winters in Southern California and Arizona in their RV.

She is survived by one brother, Robert (Mary) of Rochester, Minn.; two sisters, Helen Johnson of Solway and Irene Bjelajac of Minneapolis; a brother-in-law, Harold Peterson of Grants Pass, Ore., and many nieces. She also is survived by her church family, including special caregivers Sara Wilson, Lowell Kauffman and Dr. John Bradford, and many friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; one brother, William; one sister, Annie; two brothers-in-law, Glen Johnson and Edward Bjelajac; and two sisters-in-law, Lorraine Marks and Lucille Marks.

Services for Betty will be held Monday, August. 3, at 11 a.m. at the Missoula Alliance Church, 100 E. Foss Court, followed by a reception. Burial will be at Sunset Memorial Cemetery. The family suggests memorials be made to the Missoula Alliance Church or to a charity of the donor’s choice. The family deeply appreciates the compassionate staff and excellent care Betty received during her time at the Bee Hive Homes. Arrangements are under the care of Garden City Funeral Home.
