MESSAGE: (#525031) William Olson
AUTHOR: Janel Kaster
DATE: 10/29/2014 at 17:20:57
My second great grandparents are buried in the First Lutheran Church Cemetery
in Conroy, Iowa. Their names were William E. Olson and Margret Olson. I have
gotten Margret's death record from Iowa County. They did not have a death
record for William. He died in January of 1900 according to his Tomb Stone. He
was born in Norway in 1825. I have no other information on him. His wife
Margaret immigrated in 1856 and she was listed as single. Their son Burnett
Olson was born in 1860 in Iowa County. William and Margret would have been
married sometime between 1856 and 1860 then. On Burnett's marriage record his
father's name is listed as Berger Olson. There is a family genealogy online
that list's his mother as Margaret Sattre which is correct and his father
William was listed as Berg Bergeson. The birthdates are correct for William to
be Berg Bergeson. I have 3 names then Berg Olson, William Olson and Berg
Bergeson. I would appreciate any help with this. I have contacted the first
Lutheran church in Conroy, Iowa and am waiting for a response right know.
Thanks for any help! Janel
