Thanks for the email. I really appreciate having these. Kjerstin was my great-great grandmother.
Her daughter Petrina was my great grandmother and Petrina’s daughter, Cora was my grandmother.
Kjerstin and Petrina are buried at a small cemetery at Metigoshe.
Enjoy your upcoming birthday! I turn 70 this go round.

Toni, I am so blessed to have the same birthday as you. You too enjoy your milestone birthday.
My dad’s sister Olga Hanson, was married to your mothers Brother Bert Hanson. That makes us almost first cousins too. Jean Pladson and Audrey Aitchison are our common first cousins.
Gary’s Comments on the Kjersten Larson Photo.
Kjersten Larson was born in 1820 and died at the age of 95 in1915.
I am very sure this picture was taken in the Lake Metigoshe area. I counted 38 Grandkids of Kjersten Larson in this photo. I am sure they probably were not all present either. Many of these grandkids, who are Great Grandparents to many of our readers, had large families of their own. To this day, Kjersten Larson must have a thousand or two descendants. I am sure Doreen Larson Moran or some of you others have this Larson family tree all broken down? Half the hills must be related.
