Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello! To begin, I am a LADY. Confusing first name.
On this website I am attempting to enter information from the west side of Iron County, Michigan in the Upper Peninsula, where I live. It's BEAUTIFUL here, with forests, lakes, hills, and rivers. The history of the area comes alive for me as I work on this.
I also am entering information from my own family tree and my husband's. We have 5 young adult children and one grandchild, and I'd like to preserve the family tree information for them.
I am a retired High School Librarian, so researching and recording this information is pretty thrilling & natural for me!

Louis Kmet
Dale,

Louis graduated from Proviso Township High School in Maywood, Illinois. He next attended Notre Dame University for two years.

Here is his page on Proviso's website:

http://www.proviso.k12.il.us/Bataan%20Web/Kmet.htm

I teach at Proviso East and maintain the website. I would say supervise, but there is almost no work left to do on it. I edit and add photos.

The initial information came from a memorial book from the ceremony they held, in 1949, when the school district dedicated "Memorial Garden" at the high school.

Here is a link to the pictures of the garden:

http://www.proviso.k12.il.us/Bataan%20Web/Proviso%20ATW%201.htm

Scroll down and you will see his name on one of the plaques that are on the walls of the school in the garden.

Jim

Your help
Hi Dale Sorry for the time lapse in replying. My great uncle's name was Elof Johnson and he lived in Marquette Mi. He immigrated with his brother's from western Sweden and several of them settled in the UP. I can track Elof as late as 1925 in Marquette Michigan. It is my understanding that he died on the job at the Lakeshore Engineworks in Marquette. He was married to Ida Lofgren. If you know of anything that could lead me to a newspaper account or obituary that would great. Thank you. Tom
