He was born in Stode, Vasternorland, Sweden in 1874. They came to the US in 1884. He had a sister named lilly and a brother named John was born in 1885. He was not married at the time of his death but he was married to Grace Ellen Wickham. They had five children, Orville, Arlan, Delbert, Edwin, Margaret. There was also a baby girl that died but I dont know her name. I have found them in the 1900, 1910, and 1920 census but then it all falls throught the cracks. Do you know if the Riverside Cemetery keeps good records?
