I know that her uncle and two of his sons lived with them at one time in Osakis, but don't know if they remained there. I believe that Alice Lowell had an infant daughter that was born and died in Osakis, but that is unconfirmed by me.

I am really trying to track my gggrandfather's family, Jacob Wigal, but have hit a brick wall on him.  Teresa (family member)
