RE: Loretta Mortenson
Don't give up yet. I will continue to look for her obit.

Loretta Mortenson
I have posted the obits for Loretta's parents, Earl & Dollie Jones, to their memorials.
Yes, Loretta did remarry. I have not found her obit yet. I will keep you posted as I continue the search.

RE: Lugnet
The three brothers are -
Moses Lugnet born 18 Oct 1857 near Haaparanda, Sweden
Abraham Lugnet born Mar 1863 Sweden
Isak Lugnet born 20 Jul 1867 Nedertomea, Norrbotten, Sweden
I found a listing on Ancestry for -
Isak Vilhelm Lugnet 7 Feb 1872 Nedetomea. I don't know if this is the same Isak.

All of the brothers had passed before I was born, so the birthdates and places are extracted from census and death certificates.

I found a passport application letter (Sept, 1920) written by Moses that stated his father, 'Moses Lugnet' was deceased.
The three brothers settled in Oregon and Washington which is fairly well documented.
Thanks so much.

RE: Olaf & Loretta Mortenson
I looked at my records - Olaf died in Portland, Oregon. Portland is located in multiple counties and hopefully, Loretta published an obit for him. (I added Portland,OR to his memorial).
Olaf and Earl Jones are actually side by side in Belcrest. I'll take a group photo of their headstones the next time that I'm in Belcrest.
I'll look for Earl & Dollie May's obits because there is the possibility that Loretta remarried.

Thank you for the offer of research of the Sweden records. The surname is - Lugnet.
The three brothers are -

I will send you more information in a separate message.
Thank you so much.

RE: Olaf & Loretta Mortenson
First, thank you so much for your inquiry about the Mortensons. I'm so glad that I will be able to help the relatives in Sweden. My grandfather and his brothers came from Haparanda or Nedertornea, Sweden and I have not been successful in confirming their birthplaces. I feel as if I'm helping a relative do research.

Secondly, I will probably have an opportunity to get copies of the obits for Olaf and Loretta in about 3 weeks. I hope that timeframe is acceptable.

I will look back at my notes and try to answer your questions as best as I can. I'll be back shortly.
