Other Information

This cemetery was a family plot owned by the Erickson Family. Olof, his wife Marie, and his two sons are buried there. It looks like it has been abandoned for years. This is an example how we do not respect the dead especially the one who worked and toiled the land, the immigrants and pioneers.
