Would appreciate assistance in obtaining information on the descendants of Isaac Cairns or John McArthur families who arrived in Burnett County during the 1890's. I believe that the family was primarily in the area of Webster.

Surnames: Mattson, Brainard, Ferguson, Cairns, Gladdus, Hutchings, Lamson
I am heavy on info for my Mattson roots (glad to share what I have) but extra lean on info on the other branches. Most of my Mattson roots are from Isanti Co., MN and from Burnett Co., WI. My last info on my great grandmother, Stella Ferguson Gladdus Brainard is from a letter written in 1908 to my grandmother from Harward in Sawyer Co. I am eager to find info on my great grandfather, John Brainard. It appears that both he and one of his exes, Stella were involved in 3 or more marriage events.
