I have relatives in Sweden that moved to Granville, Kittson County ab. 1905 and later to Thompson, Kittson County. The family was: Petrus Persson (Pearson), born 1875 in Norra Finnskoga,Sweden. His wife Sigrid Persson (Pearson), born 1871 in Överberg, Härjedalen Co., Sweden, and their two sons Johan Edward (b. 1896) and John Sigurd (born 1898). Their two sons were born in Duvberg, Härjedalen Co., Sweden.
I have found out that almost all of the family members are buried at Saron Cemetery, Lancaster, Kittson Co. MN. Petrus mother and and two sisters were also buried at the same cemetery.
It would be very interesting to find living ancestors to this family, if there are any in the Kittson area.
Best regards, Susanne
