My grandparents were Married in the County Of Hennepin S.S. and I was looking for some information on them. the Marriage took place there. The names were John Wallace Foster, and he was from Michigan. My grandmother's name was Isabella Katrina Ross. I have the marriage License. They were married 7-24-1919. Could you please help me. My great grandfather was a constable, his name was William Alexander Ross, and was part Indian from around Rice Minnesota. His wife's name was Elizabeth Katherin Theines or Theimes, she was a German lady. I know that great grand father was a Judge there in, probably St. Cloud , or one of the places near by, I only have this Marriage Certificate to go by.
If you have any possible information for me on this genealogy, please contact me by e-mail
