Your family history sounds like my grandfathers history. My grandfather is Noah Joseph Richie, from Hayward, Wisc. Noah was one of 9 children, born 6-13-1893, to Joseph and Quendaleen (sp) Richie.
I've learned that they were unable to care for all the children so they were placed in a foster home or an orphanage, with Noah being raised by his mother's sister, Rose Panger. It is my understand that Quendaleen was French Canadian Indian.

Noah was baptized in Hurley, Wisc. in the Catholic Church. He worked in the lumber camps, as a cook. When he was older, he lived in a sod house in North Dakota, but Staples, Mn., is where he met his wife, Alma Sutton.

Noah and Alma moved to NE Mpls and had two sons, Delbert and Bernard. Delbert Noah Richie is my father, who has since passed away. Noah worked at the Archie Daniels Feed Mill, as a common laborer and retired as a foreman. Noah loved to cook, do woodworking and was extemely religious.

We have been trying to locate our family for the last 12 yrs. I don't know if we're related, but our history sure seems to reflect the same.
