Herres, Tourcotte, Swanberg
Posted by: Renee Herres (ID *****9507) Date: March 11, 2010 at 10:57:28

I am looking for information of any type on my grandfather's brother - Peter Herres (wife Mary Dunn Herres) and his family who lived in and died in British Columbia.
I do have a copy of his death certificate as well as ones for his wife and brother Mathias.
Peter and his wife had 4 daughters when they moved from South Dakota USA to BC in the early 1900's.
Their eldest daughter was Elizabeth Frances Herres. She married William Tourcotte. I have copies of their death records (certificates).
The next 3 daughters of Peter and Mary - all born in South Dakota are Mary F, Isabell Agnes, and Ethel G. I have next to nothing on them other than their birthdates.
They (Peter and Mary) had a 5th daughter, Eugenia Julia "Jean" Herres in 1903 who was born after they moved to BC. She married Ivar Swanberg. I have their marriage record as well as their death records. I know there were children.
Although I have done genealogy work for ever so many years, I still consider myself an amature and thus welcome any help and suggestions. I have had some absolutely fantastic help in getting what info I now have on this family as far as their Canadian lives and feel somewhat guilty requesting even more help. But, alas, I would love to find out what became of the middle three daughters as well as discovering any children of these 5 sisters.
I wish to extend my sincere thanks to anyone who may be able to help me.
Renee
