Unhappy Scandinavian cemetery

Is there anybody who could help me with headstone photos of family members who are buried in the Scandinavian Cemetery? I contacted them directly and Ms. Susie was not much help stating that I should contact family members who live there to do this for me. Since I live in Arkansas, and do not know my family members there, this is impossible.

I think you're going to have to get more specific than that. I'm not sure if there's a famed "Scandinavian Cemetary" in MN that everyone knows about, but if not just about every other cemetary in the state is going to be 'scandinavian' in its ethnic heritage and likely often in its name. What town is it in or closest to?

Default Scandinavian cemetery

I need: Frank Roosevelt Johnson b. Nov. 13, 1904 d. Nov. 20, 1975 with wife of Lillie C.

I also need: Oscar Theodore Johnson b. Sept. 9, 1894 d. Feb. 2, 1961 with wife of Anna Evelyn. He should have a veteran's grave marker and the veteran's grave registration states that he is buried in Lot 7, block 8, grave 3.

And--Andrew Johnson b. 1859 (don't know when he died) with wife of Ida C.

I hope that with the information about where Oscar is buried, that there might be other Johnson's around that are also kin such as Carl H. b. August 1899, "Babe" b. March 17, 1906 d. March 30, 1906, and a Helen Johnson. She was born in 1903 but don't know if she married so she might have a different last name.

If you can't help with photos, the dates would be appreciated.

Thank you.

If you can tell me alittle about who you are looking for, I can see what I can do to get you pictures of stones at Scandinavian cemetery, Forest Lake, MN. Me and my husband just came from there. We are thinking of being buried there. Let me know what info you have and I will be glad to see what I can do for you.

If you go to this website, it lists all the Johnson's at this cemetery. Quite a few. I don't know if you received this information before. Being that your posting was a year ago. But let me know.

Find A Grave - Millions of Cemetery Records and Online Memorials&

Try this website for findagrave.com.

They are free. They have a built in way to search for gravesites, though that depends on whether anyone has entered a gravesite on the website. You can enter the gravesite yourself if it isn't there.

Either way, you can also do a photo request. There are hobbyists all over the country who will visit local cemeteries and take a picture of the gravestone, if any, not all graves are marked. They will load the picture on teh findagrave website.
