Alice Cora Stokes Thompson:
Reply from her granddaughter – Tina Pladson Bullinger (78): Bottineau, ND
Just a follow-up on the correct name of my grandmother, Alice Cora. I was named after both of my grandmothers, Thyra Alice, and I remember doing a school family history project one time and the name of my maternal grandmother, from my mother, was Alice Cora Stokes Thompson. Hope that’s correct cause I’d hate to have to change my name at this time in my life!! HA HA

I read with interest your note about travel arrangements you might make for tours in your part of the world.
I am leaving for New Zealand next Wednesday – February 10th – with Habit For Humanity – International. Our group of 12 will work in Tauranga for 9 days and then spend a couple of days in the Rotorua area “catching some rays”.
The group from my church here in Hudson, WI, is making their third trip to Iringa, Tanzania on the 5th of March. I have made that trip twice. This spring I wanted to see another part of the world and was able to hook with with a group from Olympia, WA.
In mid-October, 20008 until the end April, 2009, I lived in Biloxi, MS working on Hurricane Katrina re-build projects. In July I returned to the Orange / Bridge City, TX area where I have spent some times last spring for a couple of weeks, re-building homes damaged by Hurricane Ike.
Our director in these 2 states is looking into how & when we can get into Haiti later this year. I would go with them and see what I can do.
Thank you for all of the work you have done to put this site together for all of us!
Should I decide when I want to travel to Southeast Asia (and I do!) I will certainly get in touch.
Go In Peace!

The person Colette Hosmer refers to would be Pete Richard Sr. He ran the dime store for many years. He was the a younger brother of her grandfather, Fred Richard.
Gary and Friends,
Floyd wrote about Emil Hack, the older man who drifted in and lived
in a shack behind the Commercial Hotel. When I was in the hospital in
Fargo back in 1985, I had to go from working from daylight to dark, to
sitting in a hospital room for three weeks with nothing to do. I about
went nuts! During this time I read the entire Dunseith History book and
studied each page as a way to pass the time. This is something I enjoy
doing anyway so it passed the time for me. Anyway, there are a few
things that will really stick in a persons mind and so was the Dunseith
Journal entry from January 1946. It said, ‘Emil Hack Found Dead-His Body
Frozen’. I asked my grandma who this man was and she said he was kind of
a loner and lived in a little shack in the alley behind Henry Hagen’s
house, which was across the alley from the Commercial Hotel. While I
have Floyd’s attention, it also said that he and Luella and their guests
were the one’s who noticed and reported the creamery fire in 1950. This
is the fire that Crystal Fassett Anderson sent the pictures of a while
back. It was in the spot that the Garden Tap and Bowling Alley are
located now. Thanks Gary!
Tom Cassidy had a son named Loan, I do not know where he moved -possibly Fargo. If there were any other children, I can not say for sure. Tom worked on the farm for my dad for many years.
Hi Gary. Answer to Floyd. We lived in the Tom Cassedy house on the so, corner of the block. North was Henry Hagen next was Steve Cook and behind him Emil Hack and on the corner where Roland Mongeon lives used to be Ernest Horsman. He was the baker in Dunseith. I don’t think anyone really knows where Emil came from. He was a handy man in town and repaired shoes. Us kid used to give him a bad time at Halloween. I’ve been in his shack. Dick, Tom Cassedy had one son his name was lone or lonely could be spelled wrong I believe he passed away. The Girl in the picture with Eleanor & Marshall, I have no clue of who she is. Eleanor doesn’t know either Lloyd Awalt
Folks, I’m running a tight schedule today with today being our bowling and I’ve also got to run up and see the Mayor this morning to get a permit for a project that we are doing. Having been sponsors together in several weddings, Mayor Guggob is my compodray. They generally have 6 to 14 (couples) sponsors in a wedding. They have them listed and seated in the order of importance. We are generally always seated way behind the mayor. Gary
