Eric and Anna Johnson Memorials
Thank you for transferring these memorials to me.

I have received a response from church cemetery folks and they are now checking church records to see if they can provide more information for me.

Take Care.

RE: August and Mary Kurkela - Edits
Wow. This is great news.

I believe that those other Johnson's located in that vicinity are related to Eric and Anna Maria. I am going to take a look at the census records and contact the County to get the death certificates for Eric and Anna Maria.

I have contacted the Cemetery via phone and I am waiting to hear back regarding any other information that they can provide me.

Would you mind transferring these two (Eric and Anna Maria Johnson) memorials to me ? I would like to populate these with information as I uncover it. My father (he is 84 Yrs old) believes he has more content somewhere in a box in has basement that pertains to Eric and Anna Maria Johnson. There could possibly be pictures in that box as well.

RE: August and Mary Kurkela - Edits
You are correct !

I have been searching for many years for these two graves and I am so appreciative of what you have uncovered here. August and Mary are my Great Grandparents. I knew they were out there but I just could not locate them and you have !!!

I believe the Eric Johnson who is also in this cemetery is Mary's Father Great Great Grandfather. Eric's wife (my great great grandmother) was Mary or Marie Poyntari.

Have you run across any information on either them ?

Thanks again for your discovery, I sincerely appreciate it.

The maiden name for Robert Weddle's wife is Lass and her mother's maiden name is spelled Ibsen, not Ebsen. These are my husband's great grand parent's family.

Just curious, Where is it that the secondary information comes from when a findagrave contributor such as yourself has added additional information? Is the parentage on the headstone? Do you want me to send you a source document? Find A Grave Memorial# 116048691 is John Lass, father of Robert Weddle's wife. But I can send you other information if needed. Please let me know what you need. Thanks for all you do with It is invaluable to research.

Our Savior's Lutheran Church
Regarding my last message....
I just found the church on google earth. From the satellite image, & I can see that the cemetery is at the church. They are both at the location that I had called "down the road." The map I had been looking at showed the church in the wrong location. So my questions are cleared up now.

Best wishes,

Cemetery Photo
Do you recall if the cemetery was at the church, or about 1/2 mile down the road? ...or two cemeteries; one at the church and another down the road?


Your photo of the Church sign for Our Savior's Lutheran Church.
