Halversons
I am sorry I can't get it together to leave only one message!! I must need more coffee this morning. I checked the cemetery records and they say it was the Halverson parents and two daughters. But I don't find this information reliable as it was added by a non-family member years after. The sequence in the deaths, Mathilda & Baby Martin, Christpoher's mother and then Christopher makes the most sense to me. I also have two leads on living members from the Halverson family and am following up on those.

RE: Halvorsens
I am hoping to have all the Baptist Church records, Obert Lutheran Church records and this book, and what ever else I can find available during the Outlaw Trail Quilt Show. Nothing is allowed to leave the property, but scanners and cameras are welcome.

RE: Halvorsens
I have the book. It also contains a photo of Christopher Halverson and photos of the Vogle/Halverson/Miller families. I am hung up right now as to whether there was ever a church on the Miller land as that is adjacent to the Obert Cemetery.

RE: Halvorson
Clearly states four burials. There is a lot of work to be done here as Mary Halvorson married Jake Flom. These connections need to be made. Many of them are in the Maskell Cemetery. I am puzzled that Mary & Jake Flom had a baby, Anna, who died at age 1. Where is she buried? I can't find her in Lime Creek, Lime Grove or Obert cemeteries. She would have been born around 1897. Maskell wasn't a cemetery yet.

Halvorsens
I have the family history book. It was composed in 1977. It has the Fred Vogle & Christopher Halverson & Fred Miller Families in it.
A copy was left in the Obert Church. It includes family stories and quotes from Family Bibles.
This clearly states that Mother is Christopher's mother. It even tells of their first meeting when she too immigrates from Norway.
It was Mathilda who died along with Baby Martin during birth.
"Mathilda passed away in childbirth, as the result of the intoxicated doctor, who cut away the womb which came with afterbirth, of her son Martin. She bled to death. Her husband was left with 6 children" The first children were:
Marn, John, Christina, Mary, Carrie, Anne & Tillie. Christina had died in Chicago previous to this birth. Another baby died before and was buried at sea.

Thank you so much!
I can clearly see by your page that you are a great contributor to this site. I appreciate the effort and time you've put forth to bring me closer to my ancestors. Thank you so very much, for what you do.

RE: Copyright violations
I'm extremely sorry. I had no idea that the photo's of my husband's grandparents and great grandparents were copyrighted, as I put their memorials up a few years ago. I've taken photos of graves for many people, because I think Find A Grave is a wonderful tool for people trying to research and reacquaint with their ancestors, especially those who cannot afford the online research. My Find A Grave photos are for anyone that would like to use them. Have a nice day.

RE: St. Onge in St. Peters
Hi Brad. Thank you SO much for all of your work. I'm very grateful to be able to see the photos. Not having photos of my ancestors themselves, this little bit of connection is nice to have.
