RE: Venus and Ingred Dau Just a note...Venus actually gave part of the land for the cemetery where they are buried...it's the Viking Cemetery. There is an inscription on the cemetery entrance stone. The last name of Dau is very rare here.
Christian and Josephine Bothmann That makes sence. I was wondering why the Bothmann monument was so close to Lena. Christian J. Bothmann b. June 3, 1861 - d. Jan 9, 1921 and Josephine C. Bothmann b. June 6, 1863 - d. March 17, 1931. The 1920 census has them living in Thief River Falls with Lena and presumably brother William.
Venus and Ingred Dau I knew I'd seen a headstone marked DAU before I took the other photos - I came across it again. It's marked Venus Dau 1910-1966 and another marked Ingred Dau 1914-1971. If you're related, I'll send them to you. Dee
