looking for location of long lost relatives grave. Her maiden name is Nannie HOLSAPPLE. Her first husband was Walter LANE. He died and then she married (supposedly) Jess FIRST. Don't know if she was buried as a LANE or FIRST. Was told she was buried in Marion Illinois at a cemetery where a road project went through. Does anyone know which cemetery this is, and if they moved the graves? Believe road was built sometime between 1950 and 1965.

Greetings from Sweden! My husband's grandmother's younger brother ERIK Petrus Valentin Peterson was born in Aslemala, Alem parish, Smaland province, Sweden on March 3, 1879. He emigrated to the US in 1907 and first settled with his brothers in East St. Louis, Ill. In 1921 he signed a document in Centralia, Ill. In the death index of Illinois, I have found an Erik Peterson listed to have died in Raccoon Twnship, Marion Co. on june 6, 1931. Maybe this is our man? We'd love to get in touch with any living relatives of Erik's. Best regards, Susanne Akerfeldt
