Thank you for thinking some more about my research question.
In fact, the name comes as a package deal ... I have *five* ancestors
called Rasmus Hansen Albertsen/son in my tree. (Traditional Danish
naming pattern - Rasmus was an eldest son).

Will do ... I will save your emails for later reference :-))

I wonder if Rasmus Hansen Albertson's mother was a a Hansen given his middle
name. Plus, note that the one burial I did find at St. Clair Twp. Cemetery
was for Hans (derived from Hansen?) S. Albertson, 1890 - 1957. That likely
means that Hans S. Albertson was living at Ute when he died in 1957 and Albertsons
were present there until that time.
Anyway, I scan read through the entire Ute History, 1884 -1984 and found one
Albertson mentioned several times. He could be a son of Hans S. Albertson,
but you would have to investigate further.

1924 Ute City Treasurer, A. M. Albertson, p. 11
June 1924, Secretary of Ute Commercial Club was A. M. Albertson, p. 11 (He
must have owned a business if he belonged to the commercial club).

You could contact me in about a year or so to check on other Albertson
burials at Ute that I may have by then.
Hi K Ols,
It was great to get your prompt reply ... and I have learned something
(the name of the town he was in). Older members of my family can *just*
recall being told about his visit to Australia ... he wore a jacket of
such bright colours that word of it has echoed down the generations :-))
Thanks again - I would be delighted if you could find his burial.

What was the name of your Albertson's spouse including her maiden name. I
was just looking in the Ute history from 1884-1984, but I found no family
biography for Albertson. Possibly it could fall under the maiden name of his
The one Alberson at St. Clair Twp. cemetery on the edge of Ute, IA died in
1927 so the family must have been there at least that late. Any other surnames
I might look under?
May own great-grandfather John ALBERTSON (Hand Jørgen ALBERTSEN)
migrated to Australia in 1856 (during the Gold Rush) ... and after some
years of diligent research, I have traced my direct line back to Ærø,
Denmark, and twice visited my living Albertsen cousins there.
But, missing from my tree are the lines who emigrated to America ... and
one of those is Rasmus Hansen ALBERTSON. He was b. 1 Jan 1871 in

In 1920 Census ... he was living in St Clair, Monona Co., Iowa (his name
has been erroneously transcribed as *Rostmers* ALBERTSON).
I wonder, does any genie on this list have any more information about

St. Clair Twp. would be the town of Ute (Monona), IA. There is one Albertson
buried at the St. Clair Twp. Cemetery although not the one you are seeking
information on. There may be others I will find when I finally finish recording
this cemetery. I'm not sure when that might be though because I don't get
there that often nowadays.
