Riverside Cemetery Question

Can someone clear up some gravesite information for me?  This is regarding Riverside Cemetery.  Find A Grave lists Ole Billing having a gravesite there (no dates given), however family members have seen a gravesite for Olof Billing but no Ole Billing.  Does anyone know if it is Olof's grave (died in 1906 at age 7) or Ole's (died at age 16 in 1922)?  Was Riverside Cemetery even established in 1906?See More

Lake Bronson School

I have two pictures of Lake Bronson Schools.  One is a wood structure (Lincoln School, 1906) and the other has teachers and students on the steps of a brick structure.  Does anyone know when the brick Lake Bronson school was built?  Was it also called Lincoln School?  Thanks so much.See More
