Ole Larson's Folks

Two weddings of note. Married this date in 1871: my great grandaunt Marit Larsdatter (sister of Ole Larson) and Engebret Johnson. And in 1912, Manda Larson (half-sister of Isaac) and Henry Olivus Lunde.

Marit’s headstone at Coon Prairie has been repaired at least once since 1880, but is illegible today.

From the two or three letters I could make out in the arch section, my guess is it was lettered something like this:

Manda Larson and Henry Lunde raised their family in Minnesota. I have never met any of those folks in person, but cousin Andrea Otto loaned me some photos of them. Read more about Manda …
