  1. My great grandfather, William Bredberg, married a woman named Anna Mary Jolly. Unfortunately, she died when their son was only ten days old. Oddly enough, I’ve never been able to find her name in a census, etc. I only know of her name because it’s on their marriage license. Perhaps your husband and I are related!!

Any thoughts?
