Mavis, I am not sure where Lyon County is located......don't have a Minnesota
map handy right now. Two suggestions: Contact the Minnesota
Historical Society on Kellogg Street, St. Paul, Minnesota. They have many
records held there. Also contact the John Deere Company, they might still
have records or be able to tell you where their early records are archived.
If I find Lyon County information, will pass it on. Busy this week, so it
may be early February.

Subject: [BEL-R] Louis Missine

I am looking for information on the parents of Louis Missine. He was born
May 24,1869 in Belgium and died Feb. 25,1944 in Edgeley, ND. Parents are
unknown but Mother's last name is possibly Tracy. I know of two brothers that
to America. August, who settled in Oregon and John, I believe went to
Louis came to America ABT 1884-1886 and worked at the John Deere factory in

Moline, Illinois. He married Hedwig ( Hattie) Reinke in 1905 in Tracy, Lyon
County, Minnesota.They had 12 children.They are listed in the 1910 census
records with the first 4 children living in Amerit Township, Lyon County,
Minnesota. I am not sure when they moved to North Dakota.I have most of the
information on their children and am looking for his parents names and any
information about them. I am his granddaughter. Any information would be
helpful. Thank you, Mavis Moore
