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!

RE: Tidy Borns #13122493
Hi Dale,

I found information about Tidy Borns on under the "Michigan, Death Certificates, 1921-1952" listings. She is my Great Aunt, sister to my grandmother Emma D Borns (Hillman).

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

Thanks you so much for posting the Lundin family memorial stone pictures of Reynardine, Mary,and Theckla! I really appreciate it. I live away from there but can still go to visit and be with them even at 2 in the morning and in my pjs. Find a Grave is a lifeline that I can't imagine not having. Thanks for giving your time and talents so that others can keep in touch with their memories.

Hi Dale, a while back you had asked me to add an obit. to Carl's memorial. However, I accidentally deleted it and it took me a while to find you again so I could ask if you would still want me to insert it? If you still have the obit, I would like to add it now. Or, if you prefer, I can transfer the memorial to you? Sorry about that. Regards, Nadeen

I Believe this to be my Aunt. She was born 30 Jan 1907 in South Carolina, and died in Negaunee Michigan, Marquette County on 28 Oct 1978, and was married to my Uncle, PVT. Hugh Cantrell. Still getting more documentation on them, they had a total of four children, two of which I have documentation proof that are both passed on.
