    3. Thank you, Margit! Because of your response to Lori's (I hope I'm remembering her name correctly) question, I went to that site and looked up Maple Island and found that bit of info, and it was indeed informative for me. Perhaps investigation into the life and family of Isaac Staples would provide me with more information about the village, its inhabitants, businesses and history. Before the county burned the house and demolished that other old foundation, a neighbor of ours did propose to a historical society that our house (the store) be preserved as a historical building within the park. Possibly because of the short lifespan of the village, and its tiny(?) size, there wasn't enough interest to save my childhood home. It was a very cool old building, and I for one, mourn its loss. I have only a few family pictures, a handful of old square nails fished out of the rubble after it burned, and my fading memories of it. I'm hoping to find more if I can. Thanks again!

Just as where I live, Flom is a township and it is also a unincorporated village. Yes there is a Indian reservation, in fact a couple of them. My son in law is a member of one of them.

    3. Oh yes, I am trying to find out more about my paternal grandmother, Leona Edminister. Supposedly, her family lived in Black Duck, then moved to Wirt. She married my grandfather (a Coates) and then moved to Virginia. One of her son's, Lloyd, married my mother in 1947. I am his daughter. My mother describes the conditions of life in Wirt for her in-laws family as destitute. She believes that the family had moved from the reservation (I do not know which) and tried to begin a new life. I cannot account for the surname Edminister. My mother tells me that my father did not want to talk about his mother or her family. It was not until I was 21 years old that my father told me of his Ojibwa family. Unfortunately, we never pursued that part of our history. A long answer to a short question, but this is the motive of my question. I am saddened that I do not even have a photograph of my grandmother. So, I am trying to search. Thank you, again. -Lori -----Original Message----- From: [email protected] [mailto:[email protected]] On Behalf Of Margit Sent: Tuesday, January 13, 2009 1:21 PM To: [email protected] Subject: Re: [MN-GHOSTTOWNS] Wirt, Wert Hi Lori, Yes it is a great book, I have owned it since it came out and mailed it to relatives in Norway.

The posts here recently reminded me about my joining… I was wondering if anyone has any information on the village of Maple Island, MN, in Washington County. I found the little blurb on the MN Historical Society site, which was very interesting (I didn’t realize there was an actual island with maple trees on it!), but I’m wondering if anyone has come across other mentions of it in their research. Reason I ask is that I grew up in the building that was once the Maple Island General Store. It’s gone now, burned in 1991 to make way for Big Marine Park. As a child, I played in an old stone foundation (also since bulldozed by the county) that was a town building of some sort, and had a fort on what I believe was the site of the Maple Island train depot. I know that the store was moved by horses around the turn of the century from its original location on Manning Trail, down 155th St., to the location I knew it at on May Ave. As a child, I didn’t fully realize the significance of where I lived, didn’t ask the right questions of the right folks, and now most of the people who knew – or might have known – are gone.

It is unlikely to appear on most modern maps, because most are 6 miles square and not easily described in latitude and longitude or as GPS coordinates. A township can be part of the official land description, and in the case of Wirt, is T[ownship]149N and R[ange] 25W. Property records may be under the description as township names can and do change! And yes, depending on how close is 'close'<G>, there is an Ojibway Indian reservation to the south and west of Wirt township. Mary Bakeman Park Genealogical Books

    3. http://mnplaces.mnhs.org/upham/ Itasca County WIRT Township was named by O. E. Walley, its first settler, probably for a township in New York or a county in West Virginia, where the name was given in honor of William Wirt (1772-1834), who was the attorney general of the United States, 1817-29. The village in sections 10 and 15 was established as a logging supply station on the Minneapolis and Rainy River Railway; its post office began in 1874 and was changed to a community post office in 1974. Elias O. Walley was the first settler, opening a store and becoming the first postmaster. The first site was on the north side of the Big Fork River with a store, a post office, and a hotel; the present community is across the river on the site of a former logging town, called Stanley by the railroad. _________________ Margit in Minnesota http://norwaytoamerica.blogspot.com/ "You will never know, unless you ask!"

    1. List Admin announcement
    2. Jackie Wilson Goddard
    3. Hello everyone. I just received notice from RootsWeb concerning updates that will start next week. As some of you may know, they have been advertising updates to the Message Boards all summer. In addition, the Mailing Lists will be moved to a new management system. What does that mean to list subscribers? For the most part, very little. The main points are: 1. Your current subscription(s) will automatically transfer to the new system so there will be no need to re-subscribe to your list(s). 2. Digest subscribers will notice a small difference in the layout, volume and issue numbers of the list digests. 3. The "-L" is being dropped from the "official" list name. You may have to adjust your spam filters or put the new address on your "accept" list to prevent it from being caught in your "junk" folder. 4. You will still be able to use the "L" address to send messages to the mailing list OR you can drop the "L". The "official" list address will be: [email protected] 5. The Message Boards will be updated first followed by the Mailing lists. Once the Board updates are launched, the gateway will not work until the mailing list is also updated. So I don't think we'll get those messages sent to the list for a few days (please note, this is my opinion and not official word from RootsWeb). At least **I hope** it will only be for a few days. 6. Last, but not least: The new management system does not support the same e-mail address being subscribed to *both* the regular (L) delivery and the digest (D) at the same time. If you are currently subscribed to both, you will continue to be subscribed to the regular delivery when the list is moved. The only way around this is to subscribe to the digest from a *different* mailing address. The list is scheduled for update on August 22nd, but please don't hold me to that!! In my experience, any time a company talks about "updates" there can be, and frequently are, unforeseen circumstances... If you have any questions, I'll try to answer them, or find the answer.

    1. Fake mail address
    2. Jackie Wilson Goddard
    3. Dear List, I believe all RootsWeb users need to be aware of this. The RootsWeb Help Desk http://helpdesk.rootsweb.com/ has posted a notice that e-mails are being circulated with a fake return address for "RootsWeb Abuse Department". Please use the above link to read the entire notice. If you should receive something of this nature, *DO NOT* click on the link in the bogus e-mail as it is an infected web-site. Should you wish to discuss this, please e-mail me privately. Thank you. Cordially, Jackie Wilson Goddard List admin -- No virus found in this outgoing message. Checked by AVG Anti-Virus.
