This is Christopher Iverson, my paternal great-grandfather. He was born on March 9, 1868 in Olivia, Renville, Minnesota. He was the fourth child born to Iver Iverson and Marit Thorsdatter. His parents were both born in Norway.
Christopher married Anna Christopherson, daughter of Ole Anthon Christophersen and Aslaug Nilsdatter. Anna's parents were also born in Norway.
Christopher and Anna were the parents of seven children.
- Christian Julius Iverson (1892-1948)
- Hannah Mabel Iverson (1894-1994)
- Lillian Emelia Iverson (1898-?)
- Lawrence Nicholas Iverson (1900-1964)
- Susan Wilma Iverson (1902-1963)
- Arthur Harry Iverson (1910-1942) [my grandfather]
- Adellard Wallace Iverson (1913-1988)
Not too long ago, I posted a photo request on Find A Grave for Christopher's grave marker. A wonderful volunteer named Kevin fulfilled my request. I asked Kevin's permission to use the photo he took and he responded by saying, "You can use the picture any way you want." Thanks Kevin! So, here's the photo of Christopher's tombstone.
I'm not sure why Christopher's full name wasn't inscribed on his tombstone. I guess they used his nickname instead. I saw him listed as Christ Iverson in the 1910, 1920, and 1930 census records.
So, thanks to a wonderful Find A Grave volunteer, my photo request was fulfilled and I now have a photo of Christopher Iverson's grave marker.
