people seldom disappear for real but still looking for these:

Ethel Abrahamson born 1919 in Butte, CO (dec 1918?-10.7.2013), married to Ambrose Abrahamson , San Mateo CA. Ambrose died 1968 and Ethel, called Pete moved to NY when she was old. Their children..there should be a girl called Nancy J married to a Michael Sowan in NY. And a boy Willard A Abrahamson. Haven´t found them..would like to contact them. Nancy and Michael may have a girl, Ingela.
About Willard I know nothing at all.

Ethel also had a brother:
Carl R Peterson born abt 1918 in Butte, MO.

Can anyone find anything more?

This is a very confusing branch of your family. On Karl Runar Peterson, married first to Lucille Eunice Phippen 26.8.01917 in Basin, MT and died 22.11.1993. They married 9.4.1939 in MT and divorced before 1952. She remarried 3.1.1955 in Norfolk, VA to a Eugene Wallace Wiley or Eugene Riley Wallace.
Karl Runar remarried to Blonette Rita Bertrand 19.12.1952 in MT, they divorced 11.9.1963 and later remarried 29.9.1968. So far I've found no children. Blonette was born 16.10.1921 in MT.
