Leon,

When I get home later tonight, I'll do some checking into the 1930 census for more info.

One thought...if you have a birth and death date for Duane Ellingson, you may want to send for a copy of Duane's SS-5, which is the original Social Security application form. The form will list the name of Duane's father as well as the MAIDEN name of Duane's mother on it. This is of course, assuming that Duane actually paid into Social Security (which he most likely did). Another thing you could do is contact the county where Duane was married and request a copy of the original Marriage RETURN. IF available, it will not only give you the names of his parents, but also the names of the brides parents in addition to the location of their births; INVALUABLE information!

I'll check into the SS-5 and get you a link for a generic letter that you can send to the SSA. I'll also check for military records for Duane and anything else I can dig up.

Donna
