RE: Kornelius Tvedt
I made some phone calls and was able to find through the Department of Veterans Affairs that he was buried in Randall, Iowa. That is about an hour from here. Weather permitting, I will drive up there in the next couple days to see if I can find him. There are two cemeteries there, but neither is too large so I will hopefully be successful. The Department of Veterans Affairs said their records show he was in Company I, Infantry. They also show that he had a brother, Siegred (not sure of spelling) that lived near Armstrong, Iowa. Were you aware of this? If not, I will call that office again and see if they will print the info they have so I can forward his complete record to you. I'll let you know as soon as I find out more.

Sincerely,

RE: Kornelius Tvedt
I'll check around to see what I can find. There is a picture of his tombstone on his profile here on Find A Grave, but I'll see if I can find information on where soldiers were buried when they died at the camp. It says Camp Dodge on his stone so I would think he was buried somewhere around here. I'll get back to you with whatever information I can find.

Kornelius Tvedt
I checked with the cemetery office for Ridgedale and they told me they have no record for Kornelius Tvedt. They also could not understand the stated plot name of Camp Dodge. The cemetery is very close to the military Camp Dodge, but Ridgedale uses only numbers, not names for their plots. I'll be happy to check further cemeteries if you have other places you would like to have me look at.
