Family History
Knutson Family

My paternal Grandmother is Iona "Ione" Knutson, who grew up in the Eagle Grove, Iowa area.  Her parents were Peter and Inga (Larsen) Knutson.  Ione attended Fort Dodge Senior High but graduated from Eagle Grove High School.

She married Francis "Hodie" Grandgeorge in 1940 and went on to live in Badger, Stanhope, Iowa Falls, Britt and Humboldt.  Hodie and Ione retired to West Lake Okoboji.  Hodie died in 1988 and Ione in 1989. 

The above picture has Peter Knutson, Ione Grandgeorge, Hodie Grandgeorge and Inga Knutson.  The youngster is likely Jack Grandgeorge.

For members of the family, here are a few documents that may be of interest.  I want to give my sincere thanks to the family members who gathered and prepared this information: my godfather Joe Grandgeorge, cousin Diana Grandgeorge, cousin Greg Grandgeorge and my father Monte Grandgeorge - many thanks to you all!
