Olson in Homer cemetery
Hi Cathy;

What can you tell me about the Carrie Olson you have listed in Homer cemetery? The reason I ask is that based on her obituary in the Dayton paper and other family ancestry, we believe tis is the first wife of my wife's great grandfather's brother, Ole G Olson. This would mean she was born Anne Karine Thime in 1852 in Stavanger, Norway, Married to Ole Gabriel Olson & emigrated to Iowa in about 1881. Her husband remarried in 1884 and retired to Chicago. Ole died in Chicago on 31-Mar-1919, and was shipped to Iowa for burial, most likely with his first wife Anne who went by Carrie. Together Ole & Carrie had two sons, Halvor and Ingebret. We believe (but have no solid proof) that Ingebret died young and would likely be buried with his mother. What sources can you recommend to find other Olsons buried in this cemetery?

Thank You .... Rick & Karin (Olson) Searles

RE: Columbia Beem
Hi Cathy!

George was a twin; I was never told that the other survived birth nor if it was a girl or boy. My Mom lead me to believe that the baby died before birth. I do know that Columbia is not their child; just George and John are. If you find any information please let me know. Thank you so much!

Columbia Beem
Hi Cathy!

Columbia Beem is not the child of Joseph Oliver and Sarah Rose (Rooker) Beem. Joe and Sarah are my great grandparents and they had only two boys: George Henry and John Harold. George never married and had no children. John had two children Robert Harry Beem and my mother, Helen (Beem) Scarborough. George was a twin (born in 1894) and the other twin died - I have no knowledge if the twin was named or buried. Columbia is not that child though.

I have been asked to link family members for my Great Aunt Ruth. If not related could you transfer her memorial to me. I can always transfer it back. We called her Aunt Susie.

Christopher Thompson's memorial [60533159]

I was told that if you add

Father: Kristoffer Torgersen [126583471]
Mother: Anna (née Larsdtr) Torgersen [126583889]

then it will show the connections to the other siblings.

My husband's G grandfather Christopher C Thompson is also a son of Kristoffer and Anna

James Buzan in Old Union
I deleted the memorial for James in Old Union cemetery - it was kind of confusing with Louisa having 2 husbands named James born same date. If you are related and want to manage Louisa's memorial just ask.

re: Johanna, his wife.

Thanks, again, for all you do.

Re: father and son link, MO and IA
I think to do this I will have to leave you two messages, as I can
only copy and paste one link at a time :)

so, re: link between William Behrens -- father -- grave MO

and Behren Behrens -- son -- grave Wms, IA

I will need to post a reference first for Wm Behrens:

I find I cannot go back, find info and then return here easily,
so I will sign out and send another post with the son's info from
Wms Cem, IA. (If it did not already post by itself when I tried
this before :)

The son is listed as age 4 in 1800, so this is close enough for
an 1895 b date, and the Rose Grove residence then, and the notation
that the father and mother lived next door to the son in 1900.

I believe two graves can be linked, but I have no idea how you do it :)

Johanna's does not list her spouse link. Am I correct in this?

Thank you for all you do with this / it is a great addition to
the research.
