Here is the information on Marie Elizabeth
Hellmann and spouce Frank Balster. At Lizzie
Slater's(aka Elizabeth Balster) funeral my mom
and dad talked to a Gwen Riedl from Richfield,
Minnesota. I was told she had information
on the Hellmann family. She might have
information for North & South Dakota. If
you want her e-mail address, let me know.
