Start from William Olaf Lorenson b. June 29 1875 in Rock Island, Ill. he married to Anna Margrete Rohlf on March 11 1898 in Spirit Lake, Iowa. Anna Margrete b. March 20 1878 in Oldenburg, Germany - died on Feb. 16 1947 & buried on Feb. 20 1947 in Elk Point, Alberta. so William died on Sept. 6 1946 somewhere near Ben's Lake that my maternal great grandparents once lived & also our family friend, Rosko once lives, so buried on Sept. 10 1946 in Elk Point, Alberta. hope the story clear up.
their children:
1. Willard Ernest b.unknow month & day 1899 in Terril, Iowa - never married - d. Nov. 1970 in Ponoka, Alberta.
2. Ada Helena b. Jan. 13 1900 in Terril, Iowa - m. James Edmund Hughston on Nov. 30 1921 in Warwick, Alberta - they have 5 children, Opal, Edmund, my father, Cal, Wes, Lyle
Ada died on Nov. 23 1993 in Vegreville, Alberta & buried
on Nov. 27 1993 in Riverside Cememtery beside her
husband.Ada remarried to Rod Dunn on April 22 1961 so Rod
died on Sept. 19 1969 in Vegreville, Alberta.

3. Edward Johnathon b. Dec. 8 1901 in Terril, Iowa - married to Hazel Emery at the same time as my grandparents was. they had about 5 children - I know bit so he died on Aug. 31 1969 in Warwick, Alberta where my maternal grandparent's house, whose he remarried to Maria Venne [b. Oct. 14 1902 & died on Oct. 18 1966] on May 16 1960 in Vegreville, Alberta. I remember I was there. what an experiment.
4.Margaret b.unknown date 1904 m. to Pete Moren & died in 1999 I think - she died and buried in Vernon, B.C.
5.Fredrick Oliver b. unknown date 1907 - m. to Audrey Nelson & died unknown date.
6. George Albert b. unknown date 1910 - m. to May Ferguson so unknown date he died.
7. Ralph William b. unknown date 1912 - m. Mary unknown last name - died on Oct. 15 1982
8. Harold Earl b. unknown date 1918 - m. to Josie Pankiew & died unknown date.
9. Helen Pearl " Dottie or Dorothy " b. same above - twin - m. Steve Pankiew, remarried to Bill Crook,he died,so remarried to Frank Goretzen. I think Helen still in Vernon, B.C. - might in senior home now.
So William Lorenson's father was Olaf Lorenson b. 1850 - d. 1931 so he married to Elizabeth Stahl, she died in 1890 so their children look after by family friends. I think. Olaf's children were: William b. 1875, Charles, John, Henry, Emma b. 1885. Anna Margrete Rohlf's parents, Deidrick Rohlf and wife, Helena Meiners. she have sister, Lena Lowrey [b.1894 - d. Oct. 15 1982] who once lived in California when my grandmother visited her in 1975. her husband, Cyde Lowrey. Anna Margrete have brothers, Fred, Juluis, Geoorge, John, William & Fred Rohlf.Oh, Email me - and I will copy some pictures & mail it to you. hopefully, info have good enough for this time. Good Luck.
