Birth: Aug. 12, 1914
Death: Aug. 12, 1914

I believe this to be the daughter of one of two brothers - Albert John Albertson or Walter Herbert Albertson.

Albert seems to have been known by the name John; Stella Wilson in the boof "Pioneers of the San Juan Country" talks of his arrival from Missouri with his family.

Albert (John) was born in Sweden 1868 to John and Anna Anderson. They came to the US in 1869. (Census records and family trees.) In 1880 they were living in Missouri (as farmers) with son Walter (born 1873 Missouri), son John (1868), and young son Willie.

In 1900 both brothers are still in Missouri; Albert has married Julie E. and Walter has married Florence. Walter and Florence have only one recorded child - Walter, junior. John and Julie have Lloyd, Horacem Lawrence, Harry and Clarence. John and Julie's last child was born in 1908 in Colorado. Both families seem to have arrived in Elco about 1906 judging from references to Walter in the local newspapers. Given that this little girl was born and died in 1914, I would therefore guess that she is Walter's daughter. Florence was, by the way, the second wife of Walter and significantly younger than he (census records.)

Walter and Florence left the area sometime between 1920 and 1920 and moved to Freemont, Colorado where he earned a living in "odd jobs".

I believe the other Anderson buried here may be this child's grandmother, Anna.
