ELLINGBOE, ELLLINGBOE posted by Paul Gilbert on Sunday, October 12, 1997

A diary was put into my possession in hopes I could find a family to which it belongs, It carries information on the first year of life for a Barbara ELLINGBOE. She was born in 1933 in Minneapolis. The diary mentions relatives living in Northfield, Minnesota. Barbara ELLINGBOE'S father was a professor at the U. of Minnesota in the 1930's. I know there is a Craig ELLLINGBOE living in Northfield, Minnesota now. I hope this message somehow reaches him, and that he may have knowledge of Barbara ELLLINGBOE who was born in 1933.

ELLINGCOE posted by Paul Gilbert on Monday, October 13, 1997

I am hoping to connect with anybody who has knowledge of an Ellingcoe family which lived in Minneapolis in the 1930's. I have a diary given to me so that I could locate relatives of Barbara Ellingcoe. The diary speaks to Barbara's first year of life in 1933. Her father was a professor at the U. of Minnesota in the 1930's. Northfield, Minnesota, is mentioned in the diary. Can anybody be of help? Are there still ELLINGCOE families in Northfield?
