Clemmet Benson??
Hi Bonnie,
I'm looking for information on Clemmet Benson who is a relative of my sister-in-law.

She believes he dies on 8/16/1965 in Anoka, MN. However, I cannot verify that fact.

Do you have anything on him?

Connecting Relatives
Thanks for connecting C. Axel and Adina Carlson a while back. I was wondering if I could get you to connect some more of the family? I know there's an edit button but that seems to be corrections for that particular person's record. What's the proper way to add people to a family?

C Axel Carlson
Hi, Bonnie!

I was wondering if you could make C. Axel Carlson Adina Hedman Carlson's husband? They are my great-grandparents.

Are you Florence and Arnold's daughter? My mother was Carol Watts LaDuke, Hildur Carlson Watts' and Jesse Watts' daughter. Adina Hedman Carlson and C(laus) Axel Carlson were Hildur's parents.

For that matter, could you indicate somehow that the 'C' represents 'Claus'? From what I understand, he went by 'C. Axel' or just 'Axel' most of the time.

Thank you!!!

P.S. People have asked if I was named after Great-Aunt Florence. I was actually named after my dad's mom, Florence Sommers LaDuke, who died before I was born. My twin brother is Floyd, of course! It WAS nice, though, to have relatives on both sides of the family with my same name!
