Memories about John Edward Winblad II:
Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) writes on January 7, 2008: "My grandmother, Marie Elizabeth Winblad (1895-1987), called him "Eddie", and said he had died when he was just a few years old. She had my sister take her to go look for his grave, but I don't think they found it that day. Marie, eventually would be buried in the same plot with her brother." July 24, 2015: "Maria Winblad in her audio interview from 1986 talks about her and Eddie getting some lemonade and cookies from a neighbor because it was her birthday, that little girl died of pertussis and Eddie and Maria both became sick, Eddie died and Maria lived to tell the story."
