newspaper and
other public records.

Although it is apparently not documented, Margaret's claim that she was born in Sundance, was corraborated by her brother Geo W. Her father was a Methodist Preacher in service there. If you come across any records, eg: birth, marriage, or interrment, with his name (Rev. P.J. LAWSON) on it I'd like to know. According to Geo W. (son of Peter J) the family moved on to Edgemont, ND in 1912 or 1913. I don't know the actual dates of their residency in Sundance; and I'd like to be able to flesh out their story.
