Hi all, In the time I've been on Findagrave, I've put up such photos as I have and created sites and linked people to their families as far as I'm able. It is difficult for me to get away to get photos, but what I do offer is over 20 years of research and information on various family members. I've been putting up their memorials when I find their places of burial and hope that others will be willing to chase down the photos for them. SFW

RE: ASCII codes for Swedish vowels.
Thanks you very much! I learned of this before but had not memorized. On my phone now so can't try yet.

I have 3 lines from Sweden. My mom was all Swede... Mormor branches from Jamtland; emigrated from Ragunda & Hasjo parishes. Farmor from Skane; last branch born in Ostra Herrestad and Ramasa parishes...

My father had mostly Norwegian ancestry... my paternal grandfather's dad was born near Falkoping and moved to Bergen, Norway. It was there he met his wife and came here with their young family in 1880.

RE: Hannah W. Anderson
Hannah's grave location is across the full cemetery... at the very southern border of Lakewood's property grounds.

A fence line is somewhat shared here with the park around Lake Harriet, this part of Lakewood being only about 2 blocks away from the "Rose Gardens".

RE: Hannah W. Anderson
Hi Sandra,

Name AXEL ANDERSON Age 60 Death 7/19/1948 Disposition 7/22/1948
Place of Death
Interment CASKET
Final Disposition BURIAL
Property SECTION 8 LOT 90 GRAVE 5
Property Type TRADITIONAL GRAVE

This is what the cemetery has for him... yes he is not far from the office and he is closer yet to the Historic Chapel on the cemetery grounds.

As for Hannah, she was buried in a pubic grave... meaning it was provided for her as needed. Not having a stone is unfortunate to gather more details but this is what is shared online for her burial...

Name HANNAH W ANDERSON Age 31
Death 2/19/1919 Disposition 2/22/1919
Place of Death
Interment CASKET
Final Disposition BURIAL
Property SECTION PG21 ROW 78 GRAVE 42
Property Type PUBLIC/SINGLE GRAVE

This would imply she was born around 1888. Being her grave was public and no stone was ordered for her, there is not going to be much family info known for her at the cemetery office... they will perhaps have a burial permit for her only. The next best thing is to try and see what her death record might say.

I will look to see if I can find out anymore about her for you?

RE: Ellen Huntley
I have them in Blk.95 - which is on the left side of the road after the little shed. In the book, it lists Huntley, Ellen & A.B. No Stones. I may get back over there before winter - if so I'll take another look. Please don't get your hopes up - I don't want you to be disappointed.

I notice that you have the same last name.

According to my family tree information, Hayden is a very distant cousin ( 2 x cousin 2 times removed)

Always nice to meet a distant family member.

Do you have any records or photos of the family from Sweden?

RE: Merta Fielding Loomis
Sandra, There are Loomis family members all over the censuses along the south end of the border between Allegany and Cattaraugus counties. I have previously had no interest in them beyond wondering if they were related to a grammar-school and high-school classmate, James Loomis born circa 1932, probably in Buffalo. Jim inherited the family business, Loomis, Offers, and Loomis Funeral Home in South Buffalo. In addition to his work, he became an accomplished musician and played organ for the local Episcopal church. He conducted the funeral for my father.
Because he was tall, he got to play a stalk of celery in our 3rd grade play on Good Eating for Good Health.

RE: Merta Fielding Loomis
No connection to the Loomis family that is not at least 7 or 8 links long. My ancestors lived adjacent to Clarksville since 1824, and other branches of my family lived in Richburg and Friendship, on the other side of Clarksville. Sorry that I probably can't help

I suggested to the person of the original memorial to change her place of burial to Hardin Family Cemetery, but I don't think they use their account here anymore. I'll have to ask the Find A Grave administrators to change it, as they have helped me with in the past.
