  1. Margaret A. Miller

    That’s a very interesting letter. I hadn’t heard the details of Uncle Jim Milne’s life in Montana before. Cousin Ada Clapp was a younger sister to Margaret Marquardt, whom you might have met at the Tiffany Family Reunion in 2012. Margaret passed away before the reunion of 2015, at about the age of 103. Uncle Jim’s wife, Hannah Jorgenson, had immigrated from Denmark, I believe.

    The apprenticeship contract is interesting. The James Milne listed below Alexander’s name would have been Alexander’s father. I have seen records indicating that Alexander was born in 1850, with other notes suggesting 1853, so he would have been a teenager when he signed the contract.

    Love, Aunt Dondee
