"It is the resting place of Mrs Carl Samuelson, who was the sister of Mrs Emma Persson or Peterson, as she was later known. This Mrs Peterson used to visit her sister's grave as long as she was able. The spot is marked by a bed of graveyard myrtle." -- "The Bailly Cemetery" by C W Nelson - undated Chesterton Tribune article, probably 1949-50

Emma Persson/Peterson d 1936

Sophia Johnson Samuelson died somewhere between 1880-1884 when death records were required by Porter County. She was sister to John Peter Johnson 1858-1925 (who is buried at Augsburg cemetery without a gravestone) and Emma Peterson 1842-1936 (who is buried at Burstrom cemetery) at 93 years old.

I believe Carl remarried Kjersti.
