Message Board Post:

Since my posting, I have uncovered information on a John and Mary Lee that could be the folks I'm looking for, if Mary Lee's maiden name was Teigen. Mary would be the sister of my grandmother, Emma Teigen Eide, wife of Albert (or Ingebrigt) Eide.
Does the following information ring a bell with anyone?
