Biography

I am Robin, daughter of Arleigh Felch and Michaella Pierce. I was born 28 Nov 1975 in Balboa Hospital, San Diego, California, United States.[1] I have been married twice[2], and have three wonderful children who are ages 22, 18, & 17. I have been working on Genealogy since I was pregnant with my 18 year old, but I never stop making new discoveries. I find a thrill in breaking through a family brick wall, or finding a source that proves or disproves an old family story.

Mysteries

The mystery on my father's side has only a partial explanation. My father's maternal grandmother, Clara, was adopted by the Holmstad family. Clara never spoke much about her childhood, so her children and grandchildren made some sweeping assumptions and the legend was born. The sad tale was that Clara's mother had been a prostitute in Seattle. Poor and ashamed, she gave up her child.

The only problem with that is, I traced the Holmstad family back to their arrival in America from Norway, to Washington state. Census information proved that they adopted Clara, and another child named Charles long before they reached Washington. Thus... Clara's biological mother was not from Washington. By studying the possible areas where they could have adopted children along their journey, I found the Wisconsin Child Care Center. Created in 1885 and located in Sparta, this place housed thousands of children. The reason that I think she was adopted from there is because the Holmstad family had settled for 5 years in Minnesota. (Natives of Norway, they came to the United States in 1883 and moved to Minnesota, where the father farmed for about five years. Then they came to Snohomish County.)[3]

During the late 1800's, Minnesota and Wisconsin had not settled on a border. The Child Care center was created to handle the massive problem with abandoned and orphaned children in both states, and is mere miles from the eventually established border of Minnesota. So, this is the most likely location for the adoption of Clara and Charles. I am also investigating the possibility that they were biological siblings, and this was the reason they were adopted at the same time.

Yes you are correct Anne Hutchinson is special to many of us. Not only am I her 4th cousin, but I grew up within walking distance of where the massacre took place. My friends and I would ice skate on Hutchinson River (named in honor of Anne Hutchinson) in the winter, and Split Rock was the familiar local landmark where Anne's youngest daughter hid from the slaughter (and survived).

Thanks Robin. You were right that I had missed a generation between Dyers.
