Re: Rollo

How interesting!  That would make sense, Rollo, William "Long Sword" @nd Duke, Richard 3rd Duke, Richard 4th Duke, Richard 5th Duke, Robert "the Devil" 6th Duke.  And then William the Conqueror on top, 7th Duke.  Wonder whether we could get a picture of that for our Clan Historian? 
The Yours Aye article says that the Fargo statue was relocated to a new home in a small park and rededicated.  A time capsule was placed in the base. When will that be opened???? 
Is there anyone out there who belongs to the Sons of Norway?  Have they forgotten their connection to the Sinclairs?

Dear Spirit One,
Where is Rollo in Fargo?  I believe at Falaise France, in front of William the Conqueror`s Chateau, there is a statue of William atop a rar`in horse which is in turn atop a six figure group of the Dukes of Normandy, and I think Rollo is one of them, ( the memory goes with time).
I once read Rolf Ganger, or Rollo was translated to mean "Walking Giant" and that  " he was a man that no horse could carry".  Any truth detectives out there that can clean up my info??
An intriguing bit of ND. History is the arrivial in 1880 of John Sutherland Sinclair, the 17th Earl of Caithness to Lakota ND. from Thurso, Scotland.
