Ragnar Johnson Memorial Photo
Thank you so very much for the quick response and photo of Ragnar's final resting place.

I see that you have a photo of several plots too. Are there several Johnson's buried nearby?

I truly appreciate you taking the time to photograph this for me. I am hoping this can help me in my research on my father's side of our family. My mom's has been a whole lot easier. Many lines back to the 1500's...and a few on my dad's too. But the whole "Johnson" line has me quite perplexed.

Kind Regards,
Kimberly Johnson-Everett, WA

Thank you so much for the grave marker photos of my great aunt, her husband and child! I've never been to Minnesota, but your photos bring me closer to the family there. Your work is very much appreciated.
