    My mother Katherine (Kohnke) Woodruff was born in Bellingham MN to Otto and Bertha (Milbrandt) Kohnke on 21 Aug 1908. She has just passed away at the age of 103, and I know she spoke very fondly of Bellingham. I visited there with her in the summer of 1960.

    Hello to the relatives I did meet at that time.
