Mary (Knutson) Olson burial

After moving to the United States from Norway, there would eventually be two different Olson families as part of the Finnestad family tree. One branch via Elizabeth (Finnestad) Knutson and the other via Rachel (Finnestad) Vallem. (I posted the marker of one of Rachel's grandchildren, Stanley, a few days ago.)

Below is the grave marker for Ole and Mari Finnestad's granddaughter, Mary (Knutson) Olson.



Mary was born May 16, 1867 in Norway as Maria Berthea Knutson, the daughter of Elizabeth and Ole Andreas Knutson. She died February 24, 1943.




Mary was laid to rest at the Lawnridge Cemetery in Rochelle, Illinois.
