Bio and Links
Bio Photo I recently became interested in learning more about my ancestors through connections made with second cousins on Facebook.

Based on information I learned from them, in 2012, I visited Keokuk, IA to locate the Helgeson family plot, which is where some of my Mother's maternal ancestors are buried. Her mother's Grandparents, paternal Uncle and maternal Great Grandparents are buried there.

In 2013, I took my Mother to visit the family farm founded by Johannes Helgeson near Sweden Coulee, Holmen, WI in 1853. The house Johannes and his sons built is still standing and a descendant of his son, Carl, are caring for the home and land.

There is a beautiful family cemetery on the lot and this a photo from the earlier years. I stood in awe as I faced the the graves of my ancestors and their friends who braved the trip from Sweden to settle there.

I would be willing to take photos at cemeteries within a 50 mile radius of where I live for people wanting assistance with their personal searches.

RE: Ingaborg Helgeson
With Solie's buried in the family cemetery, I can see why a connection was made to Ole Erickson Solie. Why they are there is a mystery to me as well. I called my aunt about it and she said the name "Solie" sounds familiar but she doesn't remember why.

I would love to join the Facebook group and will be able to add a few interesting facts about Ingeborg's family.

RE: Ingaborg Helgeson
Hello Beth!

Thank you so much for your reply. I believe that the researcher on has cited the wrong Erickson family for Ingeborg. Ingeborg is my great-aunt, the daughter of Ole and Kari Erickson who immigrated from Norway in 1852 with their children Ingeborg and Erick (my great-grandfather.) Another daughter, Hellen, was born in Wisconsin. Ole and Kari are buried in the Halfway Creek church cemetery under the names Ole and Kari Erickson Marka. Kari died in 1865 and in 1866 the family moved to Minnesota to homestead there. Ingeborg stayed in Wisconsin and married Carl Helgeson. Ole returned to Wisconsin late in life and was buried with Kari at Halfway Creek.

I have offered my research to the researcher at and am happy to send it to you as well if you like. It is easiest for me to scan my documents and email them.

Ingeborg Helgeson
Hello Beth-
I am interested in your information sources for Ingeborg Helgeson's middle name and the names of her parents, since I have Erickson ancestors who also lived in the Holman area in the 1850's.

Augusta Josephine Wall
Hi Beth,

You have a photo of Augusta that I have not seen before. I have a copy of the photo professionally done of just her face. I am wondering if you would share the other photo with me.
