A letter in file; Dear Luella Nodaway Iowa, Sept 1 8th, 1974
It has been an interesting reading what you have of the family tree and have learned a lot of things that was new to me, thanks a lot.
First I want to tell you that Oscar Thompson is just his american name as he had it changed when he came from Norway, his dad was named Thom. so he just added Thom-pson, his name in Norway was Asbjorn Hammersmark so you can see why he changed his name.
On the paper you have it Wagga, his name is Ole Waaga and also you had Peterson which is Hans.
Now some of our history. Mother and brothers and sister immigrated to america in 1880 and located in Strand Iowa. She was born 1/2/1855 to 6/6/1946. Father was born in LaSalle County Ill., 3/10/1857 to 10/17/1921. I don't have any date or records of their marriage, but it must be about in 1880, as there was a baby born in 81, who died as an infant. Charles was born 8/19/1882, and after that they moved to S. Dak. They lived in S. Dak. till about 1889, as I was about a year old when they came to Iowa again. The folks had a store at Strand, with a Post Office, for a few years, and then moved the store building to the farm where we resided till the spring of 1902, when they moved to N. Dak.. They lived and farmed in N. Dak. till the spring of 1918, when Charles and the folks moved to S. Dak. It should be Charles and family. The folks had retired, and they lived with a nephew, John Thompson, and mother kept house for him, till father died, and then she went to live with Annie Storla, (daughter) till her death.
Father farmed and was a Thresher and did carpentry work, after the store was closed. He had a threshing machine, and was run by horse power for years. Then they went to steam engines and he traded his machine here and had one delivered to Souris N. Dak. in the fall of 1908. He continued that till he retired in the spring of 1918.
Charles farmed and ran a small dairy in Landa N. Dak., and delivered milk to the people of Landa till 1918, when he moved to S. Dak., and farmed there till about 1936. When they moved to Calif., and worked for George.
Lawrence went to Morton County and filed on a claim. After that he worked in stores clerking in Minot and Crosby N. Dak. For some years he ran an Oil station and delivered L P gas. We could get more information about Lawrence from Dorothy his wife. Dorothy Thompson, 4th st., Minot, N. Dak. 58701.
Lizzie, after her first marriage lived in Landa N. Dak. And he clerked in the hardware store for a few years. Then they moved to the farm, and he farmed till his death. After her second marriage, they farmed for some time, then moved to Mitchell S. Dak. for a short time. They then bought a house in Bottineau, N. Dak., where they still live.
Millen; I came back to Iowa for a visit and a wedding in the winter 1912. And again in the fall of 1913. Was married, and went back to N. Dak., and farmed till the fall of 1917, when we came back to Iowa for a visit, and while here, we rented a farm, and I went back to N. Dak. and sold out. We farmed till 1935 when I stopped farming for myself. I did commercial farming till 1947, when I sold the machinery, and started to do carpenter work and plumbing. Now I am supposed to be retired, and just work on some little jobs, when they cannot get anyone else to do it.
Carrie after she was married lived and farmed in S. Dak. In the early 1930 they moved to Washington where she died in Bremerton.
Annie, after she was married they had a store at Elsworth Minn. for some time. She also did the same in Mt. Vernon and Storla. He then worked in N. Dak., and South Dakota adds for farm directorys till he died.
George was going to collage when the war broke out. He enlisted, and was paymaster and office worker. After that his army boss had a box factory in Sacramento, and got George to come and be book keeper there, and he would buy in that, till he had a big share in it. They sold out and retired. Now they live at 297 Belhaven Cir., Santa Rosa Calif. 95405. Mary has been working on the same thing, and if you could get in touch with her, she may have something you can use. I know you have things she has not found. I know George could give a lot more about him and family. Mary had an operation on her brain, and had not gotten as much done as she wanted to.
They had the papers that Allie was sending to you, so I hope you have them by now, as Arlie just wrote me that he had them now.
Celia after her marriage, they farmed in N. Dak., till his death . She then lived in Bottineau for a time, and then went to Seattle, where she is now. I know she would give you a lot of information and dates. I will write her, and give her your address, and ask her to send the information.
Hope you can get something out of this, and can get more direct infor. and the correct dates. I will write to Dorothy and have her send more about Lawerence. She is keeping house for her brother in Minot N. Dak.
Well we are having fall weather, but no frost as up to now, but can look for it at any time. I am still picking Tomatoes and Cukes, and they are still blooming. We have had over four inches of rain since 8/8/, but we are still over nine inches below normal. No rain from June 8 to Aug. 8. There will still be a small crop for the farmers, they are busy now putting it into the silo.
We were down to see Sanna the other day, and she sure looks good . She has had the operation on her other eye, and is to go back and get her eyes tested and glasses fitted soon. She was still staying with Arlene, but was going to move to her place in a few days.
Well it is nice hearing from you, and about things up in Alaska. It is so far up north, and we just think it is all ice and cold weather, all the year round. Like when we lived in N. Dak.. A fellow was asked how long they had cold weather up here, and he said he did not know, as he had only been there 11 months.
I hope you can get something out of this, and I will try to get some more, and send it to you, if I do. Here is wishing you the best of luck, and stay well, and we hope to see you again sometime.

Ltr. in file;
Dear Luella and Richard. Nodaway, Iowa, 12/2 4/1975
Well there is not much time left till xmas and soon our year 1975 will be a thing of the past.
We have been having so much nice weather so we are spoiled and hate to see a cold day. It is cloudy and damp this morning and there is enough dampness coming down so it is freezing on the railings, but not enough to make the steps slick yet, it was 30 degrees this morning so it is not a bad winter day, I went out now and it is getting a little slick on the steps now but it has gone up to 32 so should soon stop the freezing.
We have had a wonderful fall and winter up to now so will hate to see it get bad. We did have one day that it only got up to ten above zero but the next day it got back up in the 30ies again, we even had lightning and thunder and some rain the first of Dec.
Right now I am home for the holidays but after the first of the year I have to go back to the hospital and have a hernia operation, I was to have had it some time ago but with all the xrays they did they found there was other things that had to be done first, I was to the doctor on Mon. and he was well pleased with what had been done so far,
I have to go back to the doctor for a checkup again on Dec. 29th. and then he will tell me when to report back to the hospital.
We just had company and I think they thought we might be starving as they brought eats along, Katie brought a Rasin Pie, her mother brought Buns, Cookies, and Candy and Bertha brought Cake so we can sweeten up some.
We have the best friends that there ever was and they just don't think they can do enough for us.
Katies Mother is only 91 years young and she had baked Bund and Cookie all by herself, she sure is spry for a 91 year kid,
It is only 4 p. m. and it is getting so dark that it looks like it is getting night, the sun should be going down in about a half hour but we have not had any sun today so it could be just as well down,
There is enough dampness so the steps are getting iced over now so we have to be careful when we go out,
Christmas morning, another cloudy, damp, gloomy day without and sunshine; It was 30 Degrees this morning so it is not cold so we should not grumble about the winter weather,
Larry came down and got his grandma so she will be up there for dinner and I think that will be good for her. to be with them for a while,
2P.M. and grandma is back home after a big dinner but she should have stayed longer with them, she wanted to get back and lay down and rest
Well I have been sitting here and laying around all day and nothing done and here it is night again,
Fri. morning and another cloudy, gloomy, day without sunshine but it is not so cold so we can growl about that, 28 above this morning and that is not bad for this time of year,
Sat. morning. Well there is always something that comes up that puts the letter writing off till another time,
This is another day without sunshine and it felt like there was snowflakes coming down when I went out to get the mail but nothing showing on the ground, It is still 30 Degrees the same as it was this morning and still cloudy and gloomy as it was to start the day.
We just went to the neighbor and had coffee and cake to pass away the time,
As I went in to the doctor on Monday I met Sanna coming out as sh e had just been there for a checkup, She looked real good and said she felt real good, She is doing real good for her age.
Sunday morning, snow last night and we got nearly three inches of the white stuff, 28 Degrees It sure does not feel much like winter even if the ground is all white. There is no wind so the snow is not piling up so hope it will not blow as the snow is so light it really could pile up,
Today they are having the Dorr and Woodin picnic in the armory in Corning, That is Abbies son Glen and his wife Ruth Woodin are getting the two families together to compare the two. We will not get to go as it is to much snow and we have not gotten any snow tires for this car yet,
They want to come and get us but it will make to long a day for us young folks as we need to lay around and rest,
They had a picnic like that last year for the first time so they all liked it so much that they want it for an annual event,
I really liked the part of your letter that said you planned to come down here in July or August. So hope every thing goes well so you can make it as I missed seing you the last time you were here,
I was just trying to figure out and find that Sanna and I are the two oldest Thompsons around here now, I think my sister in N. Dak. is the oldest Thompson and she will be 89 years the 16 of April, 1976,
Years are piling up so fast and there is no way to slow them down . Here it is 2-45 P. M. and still cloudy and dark but no more snow but it is thawing some so it will freeze a crust on the snow so it will not drift as had if we get a wind,
Monday morning another cloudy and dark day so it may snow again as it is dark enough to do anything. One nice thing about it is that it is not cold, 28 Degrees this morning so that is not bad for a mid Winter day,
I have an appointment with the doctor today and no snow tires for our car so we have to make some kind of arrangement to get transportation to town.
Velma and the kids are going to Omaha today to see the new grandson so they are not available, Anitta and Ronald are taking the aunt to read the will so they are gone, I may call the Dr. and see if I can make a change til l Friday as that is Abbies day to see the Dr.
Our doctor is real interested in his patients so he is real to go to, The hardest part for me is to remember to take the pills, Abbie does not remember lots of things but that is one of the best things she can remember She never can remember what to take but knows that she has them to take so I have to get them for her,
Well it looks like we will have this kind of weather all day so think I will brave the snow and take this out to the box, I have not been out more than on the steps for some time so better go out for a change,
I hope you had a real nice xmas and that Santa was real nice to you and the new year will be as good or better,
Stay well and we will be looking to see you this summer so be more careful and make your plans come true,
With lots of love and best wishes to all.
Millen & Abbie
A letter in file; Dear Luella and Richard, Nodaway, Iowa, 12/25/1978
Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year
Velma and the family all went out to Lois and Paul for the day but it is so far that I did not want to go, To ride a hundred and fifty miles and then that far back is more than I want to try now,
Anitta was going to bring her mother out for dinner but it is a damp cool day so think they gave that up for today,
We did have a little sunshine this morning but it clouded over and cooled off more so it is not as nice as it looked like we was going to have , It is 25 degrees now at 3-30 P.M. So it has been getting colder since noon
We did have nice sunshine this A.M. but it could not stay that way all day. We have to take it as it comes and be glad that it no worse
I gave up driving the car as I was seeing double. When a car was coming I would see two cars and then I shut one eye and there was only one so I thought the other car went in the ditch and I did not want to ditch any more cars,
Velma and I went over to Creston and had our eyes tested and got new glasses and now when a car comes I see only one, I did not think it could be done but it sure is nice to see things as they should be,
If I want to go there is plenty of drivers to get so I can go when I want to. I will drive over to the neighbor or down to Velma's but not to town,
They had their Xmas over at the home and I saw Abbie got a nice blanket and a gown and dont remember what the rest was that she got,
I just had company drop in but only for a short time as they were on the way to see his mother and her folks, It was Abbies son and wife,
They know I like cross word puzzles so they brought a couple of books so it will be a pass time for a while, She also had made cookies brought a plate full of them and then a package of cheeses and meats,
They went from here over to the home for things for his mother and her folks live just down the hill from the nursing home,
It sure is nice as they are as good to me as they are to their mother And Velmas kids are better to her then some of her own grandchildren, When they come home they always go over to see her and some of her own has never been over there to see her, And they don't live too far away,
Well the pup and I have had our dish of icecream so it is time to go to bed and I have the blanket plugged in so the bed is warm, Bed time (night)
Tue. morning. A nice clear morning and not to cold for a winter day just at the freezing mark now and no wind, A nice bright sunshine so it is sure nice to look out and the snow is gone.
I have not heard from Velma yet how they got along to Lincoln and back or what time they got back last night, If they did or not stay and come home today,
She has not called this morning so I suppose it was realy late when they got home or it might have been after midnight so it could be early, Now I dont know if she got home or not as the dog came up here so there might not be anyone home down there, Velma's dog is laying out here on the porch and feels right at home,
On Oct. 22, they had open house for our 25 aniv, and my 90 ith. birthday and we had a nice time and got to see so many old friends that we seldom see at other times,
I was afraid it would be to hard for Abbie but she stood it well . She has been in the nursing home since the 4th of Aug. 77. She had been there only a short time when she had a stroke and was paralized on the right side so she could not move a finger or toe on that side, she is now so she can feed herself and can walk but has to have something to hold on, She goes in a wheel chair to the table but most of the time someone pushes it for her, They are so good to her over there Still it is not home and she would so like to come but the Dr. said she could have another stroke at any time, She has had two or three light ones before. One was in her face but she got out of that with no ill effects, Now it is just wait and hope for the best,
It was hard to go over there at first as she would always want to come home but now she is more content as she knows it is a danger not to be there where she can have good help. Bed time; goodnight,
Wed, Morning. A nice bright morning and just at the freezing mark this morning so that is not bad,
A year ago the middle of Dec, I had a sore toe and was in the hospital with that and got home the 2nd of Jan. and last week was the first I could use shoes again. Have had to go with house slippers all that time so I was glad to put the shoes on. I could use my boots but was not out where I had to use them.
I want to go over to Sanna and let her read the Waaga family tree as I know she will like to hear about them,
They left here in early 1900 and I did see the youngest girl one time when I was out in Bremerton, I think all the first generation is gone and it is the next generation that I have been hearing from. The last time I heard from Ora. Erne was staying with they but was not feeling too well and have not heard from them since,
We received about 200 Birthday and Anivversary cards and I had to give up on answering them all It sure was nice hearing from them all.
Velma just called and we are going over to town and have something to eat so I don't have to fix any here, They are better cooks then me.
Well we are back home and Abbie was feeling real good and had other company too. She had other company as to her daughter Ada. Adas daughter and a grand daughter and Adah brought her mother in law so she had lots of company.
Some time ago my little dog went out before I went to bed and she did not come back so I went to look for her but did not find her. She was getting so old she could hardly walk so I called my brother in law and asked him if he would take her to the vet, and put her away, The next morning they called and said they were going to town and would take her, I had to tell them she was gone and I did not find her,
Velma went out to Lincoln Nebraska to see Lois and Paul. On her way back she stopped at a grand daughter and they had some young pups so she got a young pup for me. We took him over to show Abbie and a guy in there asked if that was to be a bingo prize so now I call him Bingo.
I have been having the floors covered with papers for safety, He has done so well so now if he wants to go out at night he comes and scratch on the bed for me to let him out.
Well it is getting time to eat again but I had dinner in town so am not hungry, They have been bringing in all kinds of things to eat so now I don't know what to take first,
Thanks again for your letter as we realy like to hear from all . I realy do not like the job of writing but have not found a way to hear from them other wise.
Hope you all had a Merry Xmas and have a Good new year,
With lots of love to all.

Newspaper articles in file; 5/1/1983, NEIGHBOR JAILED IN CONNECTION WITH SHOOTING OF lEWISTON MAN, A Lewiston man was shot five times with a small caliber pistol Saturday morning, and a neighbor has been arrested and charged by police with the crime.
Nicholas A. Spellmeyer, 26, was taken into custody about an hour after Randy Thompson of 2111 4th Ave. North was shot in the chest, abdomen, leg, and arm, according to police reports.
Spellmeyer was taken to the Nez Perce County jail, where he was held without bail until arraignment in Magistrate Court on Monday.
Thompson was listed in stable but serious condition at St Joseph's Hospital Saturday evening after undergoing surgery.
Police said Spellmeyer fled the scene of the 11:30 am shooting in a car belonging to Thompson's brother. He was arrested in the 1900 block of 13th Street in Rural Clarkston by Asotin County sheriff's deputies, according to Capt.Duane Ailor of the Lewiston Police Department, which is handling the case.
Spellmeyer lives in a duplex apartment behind Thompson's residence. He moved to Lewiston from Spokane in December, Ailor said. Spellmeyer and Thompson apparently were friends, Ailor said, but he did not explain the circumstances surrounding the shooting.
"We have more than one version (of the shooting); we'll try to ascertain what the situation was," Ailor said.
"We have some pretty good ideas but we have to piece it together," he said.
Thompson lives in a basement apartment below the residence where the shooting occured. The couple who live in the upstairs residence were away at the time of the shooting, and no one else was home, Ailor said. The shooting remains under investigation, Ailor said. (shooting was April 3 0, 1983)
May 2, 1983, WOUNDED MAN TAKEN OUT OF INTENSIVE CARE, Randy Thompson, 18, who was shot times Saturday morning, was moved out of intensive care at St. Joseph's Hospital Sunday and was listed in stable condition and improving. He was shot in the chest, abdomen, leg, and arm, according to police.
The shooting occured at 11:30 am at 2111 4th Ave. N. Thompson lived in a basement apartment at that residence. A neighbor, Nicholas A. Spellmeyer, 26, who lived in a duplex behind Thompson, was arrested Saturday and charged with the shooting.
Spellmeyer was arrested by Asotin County sheriffs deputies after he had fled the scene to rural Clarkston, according to police.
Spellmeyer is scheduled to be arraigned in Magistrate Court today.
Police have released no information on the circumstances surrounding the shooting,
$100,000 BOND SET FOR SUSPECT IN SHOOTING, Nez Perce County Magistrate Donald
Worden set bond at $100,000 Monday for Nicholas A. Spellmeyer, 26, who is accused of shooting a neighbor five times Saturday in North Lewiston.
Spellmeyer was charged in court with aggravated assault and with using a firearm in committing a crime. He was placed in county jail to await a preliminary conference at 8:00 am Wednesday
Court will determine then whether to pursue the case and offer Spellmeyer the option of a preliminary hearing.
Meanwhile, Randy W. Thompson, 18, victim of the shooting, was reported to be improving Monday but still in serious condition at St. Joseph's Hospital. Police said Thompson was shot in the chest, abdomen, leg, and arm with a .22 caliber revolver.
Spellmeyer and Thompson live in separate buildings at 2111 4th Ave. N. and that's where the shooting occured, according to the police report.
Police said the cause of the trouble remained under investigation, but it apparently was the climax of a personal dispute.
PRELIMINARY HEARING SET IN SHOOTING CASE, A preliminary hearing was set for
Wednesday for Nicholas A. Spellmeyer, 26, of 2111 4th Ave. N. Apt. 2, Lewiston, on a charge of aggravated battery and a second count of using a firearm in the commission of a felony.
Spellmeyer is accused of shooting Randy Thompson, 18, of the same address, five times on Saturday. Thompson was shot in the chest, leg, abdomen, and arm with a .22 caliber pistol, according to police reports.
Spellmeyer is being held in the Nez Perce County jail in lieu of $100,000 bond. He is represented by Owen Knowlton of Knowlton and Miles.
Thompson is listed in satisfactory condition at St. Joseph's Hospital and was said to be steadily improving, according to nursing supervisor.
May 12, 1983, SHOOTING VICTIM, SUSPECT WEAVE DIVERSE TALES, by John McCarthy of the Lewiston Tribune, Nicholas A. Spellmeyer was bound over to District
Court Wednesday on charges of aggravated assault and using a firearm to commit a crime, both felonies. He is accused of shooting Randy Thompson five times with a .22 pistol on April 30.
Spellmeyer, 26, and Thompson, 18, have different versions of the circumstances surrounding the shooting. Spellmeyer told police that he was protecting himself after Thompson fired a shot at him. Thompson said Wednesday that Spellmeyer shot him for no apparent reason.
Thompson testified Wednesday as a prosecution witness in a closed preliminary hearing before Magistrate Darrel Perry. The hearing was closed at the request of Spellmeyers attorney, Owen Knowlton.
After answering questions for almost 30 minutes from Knowlton and Nez Perce County prosecutor Steve Tobiason, Thompson told the Lewiston Tribune outside the courtroom that he had no idea why Spellmeyer shot him.
Thompson said he and Spellmeyer had been playing cribbage together earlier in the morning of the shooting. The two had been friends for more than a month he said.
"He didn't seem like a person who'd go off the handle," Thompson said. "I don't understand it. He's always mellow, wasn't high strung."
Thompson said he took a shower after playing cards and when he came out of the bathroom "he was standing with a gun pointed at me."
Thompson was found at about 11:30 am by Lewiston emergency medical technicians in the street outside an apartment at 2111 4th St.where the shooting occurred. He had 5 .22 caliber bullet wounds according to the medical report.
The shooting took place in an upstairs apartment according to police reports. Thompson lived in a basement apartment at that address, and Spellmeyer lived in an apartment behind the house at the same address.
Thompson was released from St. Joseph's Hospital on Saturday after a week long treatment, including surgery to remove a bullet from his abdomen. One of the bullets remains lodged in his upper chest, he said the other bullets passed through his leg and arm.
Spellmeyers version of the incident differs markedly from Thompsons.
After his arrest in rural Clarkston shortly after the shooting was reported, Spellmeyer told Lewiston police detectives that he had been shot at one time by Thompson after leaving the upstairs bathroom at 2111 4th St. A struggle followed where he grabbed the gun and fired one or more times without seeing if Thompson was hit, according to the transcript in the court file of Spellmeyers taped statement to police.
Spellmeyer told police that he was protecting himself by seizing the gun and firing at Thompson.
Spellmeyer said that he and Thompson had been smoking marijauna and crystal meth, an amphetamine, since he joined Thompson at about 8:00 am to play cards.
Thompson said neither he nor Spellmeyer had been using any drugs during the shooting. He said he didn't know if Spellmeyer was a drug user.
Thompson was the only witness called to testify at the preliminary hearing. Spellmeyer will be arraigned in District court on May 25, one week later than usual because Judge John H. Maynard will be out of town next Wednesday.
Spellmeyer's bond was reduced to $20,000, from $100,000.
MAN ADMITS GUN ASSAULT, Nicholas A. Spellmeyer pleaded guilty Wednesday in Second District Court at Lewiston to aggravated batteryby admitting that he shot Randy Thompson five times with a .22 caliber pistol on April 30.
A second charge of using a firearm to commit a crime was dismissed.
Thompson, 18, of 2111 4th st., Lewiston, was hit in the abdomen, chest, leg, and arm by bullets fired in an apparent disagreement with Spellmeyer at an apartment upstairs from Thompson's.
Spellmeyer, 27, is suspected of being an escapee from the Oregon State Penitentiary at Salem under the name Ervin Nichols, according to Steve J. Tobiason, Nez Perce County prosecutor.
Nichols is being sought by Oregon authorities for escaping from the prison in August 1982. Nichols was in prison under charges of probation violation.
A warrent for the arrest of Nichols from Multnomah County at Portland arrived at Nez Perce County Sheriffs Department Wednesday, according to Sargeant Bruce Birdsell. Another warrent from Oregon State Correctional officials is expected to arrive any day, and the county has been notified that Nichols and Spellmeyer may be the same person, Birdsell said. Thompson was in St. Josephs Hospital for a week as a result of the shooting. Spellmeyer will be sentenced on July 27. Thursday, June 23.

Newspaper article in file; 5/13/1974, Fairbanks Tower Clears Two Pilots to Collision. Two airplanes operating on different radio frequencies collided on the south taxiway area at Fairbanks International Airport last night, but all occupants escaped injury.
The Federal Aviation Administration said a Piper PA20 piloted by Robert Ylvisaker had been cleared for takeoff by the control tower. A Fairbanks Air Service C46 behind the Piper had been cleared to taxi by ground control operators on another radio frequency
The pilot of the C46 apparently was unable to see the smaller Piper. The FFA said the C46'S props chewed up one wing of the Piper, ripped through the fuel tank and into the fuselage.
Ylvisaker saw the C46 bearing down on him and attempted to avoid it, the FFA said, a move which they said may have saved his life.
National Transportation Safety Board officials from Anchorage were to come to Fairbanks today to investigate the accident. (Terry was on the C46 with a load of dynamite headed for Deadhorse.)
