LINDSTROM posted by Alvera Young on Sunday, January 28, 2001

LINDSTROM: The Praireland Genealogical Society quarterly lists the buriels at the Swedish Mission Cemetery of Coon Creek, Lyon County, MN, noteing my great uncle and his family: Walter B.Lindstrom b.May 5,1894-July 22, 1915.; P.A. (Peter Alfred) Lindstrom b.Feb.8,1863-July 30,1921. Caroline Lindstrom b.Mar. 1, 1858-Oct 29, 1917. I have a motion picture of Peter Alfred Lindstrom that was taken in the early 1940's when he was visiting his brother in Washington state. How can I be sure if the date for death of P.A. Lindstrom July 30, 1921 is correct? Or am I confused.
