Vallem burial plot - Union Cemetery

Here is a photo I took recently of the Vallem plot located at Union Cemetery in Lee county, Illinois.



















In the background is the Vallem monument, which I posted in August 2010.   In the foreground is the marker for Lena Josephine (Travland), the first wife of Peter John Vallem.    To the left of Lena is Peter's marker.

To the left of Peter's marker is that of his second wife, Sarah (Anderson) and to the left of Sarah is the marker for Peter's daughter, Lena Verdelle (Vallem) Dover.   The marker says 'Doner' though I am not sure of the correct spelling.

Lena Verdelle (Vallem) Dover - burial

Here is the grave marker for Ole and Mari Finnestad's great granddaughter, Lena Verdelle (Vallem) Dover.  


















The marker indicates "Doner" but according to Winnebago County, Illinois marriage records, Lena's husband was Francis William Dover.    I haven't found additional records to verify which spelling is correct.

Lena was born July 30, 1907 in Lee County, Illinois and died January 3, 1955 in Phoenix, Arizona.  She is buried at the Union Cemetery in Lee County, Illinois.

Lena was the daughter of Lena Josephine (Travland) and Peter Vallem, the granddaughter of Rachel (Finnestad) and Lewis Vallem.
