Hendricka Malina Nelson
I requested some edits on her memorial. Here is information concerning her birth year, Hendricka Malina Voge Olson's birth is given in the Family of Nels Peter Nelson and Ingrid Christina Christoffersdotter Book as September 9, 1848 in Askevold,Woge,Syndfjor,Bergen, Norway. In researching her birth I could not find her birth listed on 9 September, 1848 but did finally find her birth recorded as 5 October 1849, in Askvoll, Sogn og Fjordane, Norway parish records. I can send you a copy of it if you would like me to. I also researched that Sunnfjord was the traditional district which today is the county of Sogn og Fjordane, Norway. In the Askvoll parish register, her parents were given as Ole Thorstensen and Thrine Rasmusdatter of Vaage. This is consistent with her death certificate where her father's surname is given as Olson and her mother's given name is Turina or as spelled in the Askvoll parish record as Thrine Rasmusdatter. The Voge listed as her last name in the Nelson Book, and listed as Woge as part of the place of her birth in her obituary is all consistent with the Askvoll parish record listing her parents from Vaage. Also I have a copy of her death record from Minnesota that gives her death date as 23 Jun 1946. I can send you this also. So her headstone birth year is incorrect. She is my great great grandmother. Thank you

I want to thank you for posting the photos of the Bicknase gravestones, taken in the Hillside Cemetery. I hope you don't mind me using them in my Bicknase-Bicknese family research. I try to give credit to those taking the photos, but some times I slip up, sorry if that happends.
