Tombstone Tuesday ~ Hilma Elizabeth (Carlsson) Taylor

Hilma E. Carlsson Taylor and Charles A. Taylor Tombstone

This is the tombstone of my great-grandaunt Hilma Elizabeth (Carlsson) Taylor and her husband Charles Alvin Taylor.

Many thanks go to Alton and Loudonia, Find A Grave volunteers, who took this photo of Hilma and Charles' tombstone.

Hilma was born on June 1, 1888 in Eskilstuna, Sodermanland, Sweden to Johan Erik Carlsson and Karin Johnsson. According to both the 1910 and 1930 federal censuses, Hilma's year of immigration to the United States was 1900.

Hilma married Charles Alvin Taylor on November 16, 1907 in Salt Lake City, Utah. They were the parents of two daughters:

  1. Hazel Hilma Taylor (1909-1977)
  2. Catherine Amy Taylor

I love this photo of Hilma with her sister Hilda Maria (Carlsson) Gillberg. Hilda was my great-grandmother. Hilda is on the left and Hilma is on the right in the photo.

Hilma passed away on June 14, 1976 in Suwannee County, Florida.
