I have been researching my and my wife's family for over 20 years. I am interested in the following family lines: Kent, Norman, Stephenson (West Virginia), Thornley (Massachusetts), Schedin, Sonsteng, Tyrrell, Benson (from Bengtson of Sweden) and Newman (Minnesota).
I just saw the photo you posted. I'm am most pleased to see the spot where he was laid to rest. It was so very kind of you to go above and beyond in your efforts to locate Charles. It was actually wonder that you found him and that the information checks out. I hope your kindness is returned a hundred fold. Kindest regards, Steven
RE: Charles James Olson / Ole C ... Hi again Don, Boy am I sorry to have put you through so much trouble. I found out from another family member only late today, about the headstone. He had a marker. VA markers were usually a square piece of white sandstone about 4 inches square and about 10-12 inches long. The keeper told a family member kids steal these markers all the time. In spite of it all, I would greatly appreciate your posting the picture you took of the plot area. Again, I can't thank you enough for all your time, help and concern in all of this. You are truely a blessing. I also gleened good information from your visit to the library, things I never knew. Thank you and kindest regards, Steven
Charles Olson Hi Don, Got your message. It is extremely kind of you to do all that checking for me. The information I listed is what I received via family and have no other information other than perhaps he is listed as Charles Olson, Charles Olsen, or Ole Olson. I appreciate all your hard work, time and efforts. Good luck and thanks again. Kind regards, Steven G Wilson
