Wednesday’s Child–Henry Adolph Olson

Henry Adolph Olson is my 1st cousin twice removed.  He is the son of Eilert Christopher Olson and Julia Randina Iverson.  Eilert was born in Bergen, Norway on June 15, 1872 and died in St. Cloud, Stearns, Minnesota on September 1, 1964.  Julia was born in Olivia, Renville, Minnesota on July 8, 1876 and died in Hennepin, Minnesota on April 17, 1973.

Henry Adolph Olson was born on August 10, 1904 in Sedan, Pope, Minnesota and died on March 17, 1905 at only seven months of age.  He is buried at the Chippewa Falls Cemetery in Terrace, Pope, Minnesota.

The pictures of Henry’s gravestones were taken by Jim Olsen.  I thank him for taking these pictures and for giving me permission to use them in this post.

If you look closely at Henry’s gravestone, you will notice the words "Birth" and "Death" are written in Norwegian as "Födt" and "Døde."

Thanks for reading!
