There is a Lawrence Melius on 1930 census for Colburn Twp, Chippewa Co., WI with wife, Marjorie and sons, Larry & Robert. The census record says he's born in North Dakota.
I believe this may be the same Lawrence Melius I have in my database, b.c. 1906, son of Frederick Josiah Melius & Mary Lorraine Ostrander. 1910 & 1920 census this Lawrence in North Dakota.
This Melius family shares common ancestors with me....Philip Melius & Polly Vandebogart of NY who migrated with their family to IL (1860) & IA (1870).
