Birth: unknown
Death: May 1, 1900

A. Bintala shows clearly on this headboard. J.W.Dilley in HSMD lists a finlander as Antti Pendtilla. Remember, half the names were misspelled at the time of the disaster and the finlanders made up much of these. Another list of the Winter Quarters dead available on the internet shows Anders Gustaf Bengtilla. At present I'll leave the name as show on the headboard.

Volunteer relief services came from all over the country and especially from around Utah. The outpouring was heart felt and genuine. A flower train was sent through towns in Utah picking up boquets of flowers from many towns and the train was filled with beautiful flowers. This was a spontaneous happening and a blessing for the 107 grieving widows. The cemetery, while bleak and desolate was at least finely decorated. Imagine if you will, a cemetery area about an acre with 100 fresh graves dug and awaiting refilling. On the day of the funeral a howling rainstorm set in. Most things about this disaster just keep getting worse. The wonderful flower train was a respite from despair, even if temporary.
