My grandmother was Charlotte Fairles, daughter of Annie Fairles. Her uncles were Murrays. They lived by Butte St. Paul and Lord’s Lake.

Dwain Coleman was related to his aunt, Marion Fairless–any relation to the Coleman’s?? Or, Sue Gilmore Metcalfe?
Birthday Greetings to Jerry VandeWalle, ND Supreme Court Justice
Jerry’s brother Virgil, A Community Icon, was an Ag and FFA teacher in Bottineau for many years.
Face Book posting by Virgil’s daughter Mary VandeWalle Kuntz.
Mary Graduated from Bottineau HS in 1973:
Folks: Jerry Vandewalle’s brother, Virgil VandeWalle (deceased) was an Agriculture and FFA teacher at Bottineau HS for years. Many of you on this distribution were his students. He was a community Icon. He also facilitated the Monday night farmers classes that many of the local farmers attended including me. I was in High School at the time. I attended those classes with my dad and Robert Pritchard.
Jerry very much resembles Virgil too.
I have included Mary With this distribution.

Happy birthday to this man … Chief Justice Gerald VandeWalle….. better known as uncle Jerry or Jerry by his namesake Lincoln Gerald. This man has been like a father to me as his brother ( my dad) died at a very young age. Thank you Jerry for all you’ve done for me and all you’ve done for the state of ND . Your life has been the Supreme Court but you have also been there for me or anyone else whenever the need is present. You are most definitely a man of integrity, character, empathy and kindness. Lincoln should be so fortunate to have you as his great great uncle. Rock on Jerry….. we love you beyond words

Gary and Friends of Dunseith,
When I was a child one of my very favorite earliest summer memories was going up to Jim and Ella’ Metcalfe’s farm home close to the border on a Saturday night.
Those wonderful girl cousins taught us how to play ‘Ante aye Over’. (Annie, annie i over)
Later darkest dark, darkness descended.
While the grown-ups visited over coffee in the house the Girls brought out a blanket.
We all lay down on our backs, elbow to elbow, looked up and gazed at the stars in the sky.
In the Jim Metcalfe yard,
I discovered the Milky Way, the North star, the Little Dipper, the Big Dipper… and watched for falling stars to wish on.
Look for the Meteor Shower this week.
I plan on making a wish.
Please, join me in gazing at the stars and wish for a vaccine!
