Elizabeth/Eliza "Lizzie" Thompson Johnson

According to 1905 Minnesota Census, she lived with Andrew at the age of 23, making her birth in Wisconsin about 1882.

At one time, she lived in the same building in San Francisco as my great-grandmother. Family stories indicated that they did not trust each other.

Everett (Ev) Johnson (born about 1906) was her son and he had two children, Lee Johnson and Joyce Johnson Tarrentino.

Thorvald E. Thompson

According to an entry, born 9 Jul 1884 in Clinton, WI and died 4 Oct 1946 in Seattle, Washington. Draft registration records indicate a July 9 1883 birth.

Thorvald married Manda/Amanada Johnson and was the father of three daughters, Alice Llorrae (Married Richard Mathews and John Patrick Quigley), Hazel Violet Bartholomew (13 Jan 1906 - 16 Sep 2002) and Lillian May Rozenberg (known as May).

Manda was born in South Side, Minnesota, USA on 25 Jun 1887 and passed away on 7 Aug 1927 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.

Both Thorvald and Manda are buried in St. John's Lutheran Church Cemetery, Annandale, Wright Co., MN, according to cemetery records. However, cemetery records indicate Thorvald's death in 1938, rather than 1946.

I remember Hazel quite well, as she visited my grandmother Clara Dado quite often. As a family, I also remember visiting May and Don Rozenberg in Southern California in the late 1960s or early 1970s.

Hazel was married to Vernon Bartholomew. They had a daughter who presumably died at birth on 30 December 1931 or 1932. Hazel's sons were Stephen Vernon (b. abt. 1936) and David Anthony (born 5/31/1940). Stephen was married to Muriel Bromberg (Ancestry)/Broumber (California Birth Index) AKA Mimi. Hazel divorced on 12 November 1963.

Stephen and Mimi had a son, Brendan Patrick Bartholomew, 23 December 1969.

David married Sue Anderson.

Alice's children are Michael Mathews, Judy Lee Quigley (born 1 September 1941) and Jan Patrick Quigley (born 1 April 1946)

1910 Census indicates his birthplace in Illinois. Clinton, WI is on the Illinois border.

The 1930 United States Federal Census contains this entry. It's possible he remarried.

Leslie Bell & Brian Dempsey
February 5, 2011 Gallery 1028

The Couple - Brian can still recall what Leslie was wearing the first time he laid eyes on her at a party: “printed shirt, blazer, ponytail,” says the groom. Now that’s what we call making an everlasting impression!

The Details - LOLA Event Productions worked old barn windows into the party’s décor. Callahan Catering incorporated the couple’s favorite dishes (think mac ’n’ cheese and paella) into the night’s nibbles.

The Party - Because Feb. 5 is also Leslie’s birthday, The Party Faithful sang “Happy Birthday” to the bride. All 145 guests parted with spiced sachets handmade by the happy couple. –Elise Hofer
