    Carol Ann Nystel’s younger siblings’ mother was Louise Gunderson. I can’t find the marriage record of Archie and Eleanor Marie Green, who is listed as Carol’s mother, nor can I find her anywhere else. Anyone having any success? I suspect she might’ve also been of Scandinavian descent.

    I think this very likely is Henry McMaster, but I wasn’t sure enough to add it:

    Any finally, anything on grandfather Teddy?
