Hello Walter,
Thanks for replying to my message. Niels Jensen Byriel and my greatgrandfather, Mathias Jensen Byriel were sons of Jens Christensen Byriel and Christine Mauritsen who had eight children together. Jens Christensen Byriel had been married previously and also had eight children with the first wife who died in 1856.

I know that Mathias Jensen Byriel and Niels Jensen Byriel died within 10 months of each other, both in or near Exira, Iowa USA and both of their death records say they were buried at Exira, Iowa which is not far from my home, but we have not been able to locate their graves, so I was hoping that Niels Jensen Byriel's Denmark descendants might have some record showing the name of the cemetery where he was buried, in case Mathias was buried on the same lot or in the same area of the cemetery. Mathias' wife remarried and is buried in another cemetery near here, and I know that Niel's wife and son returned to DK.

If you will email me at this address: and give my your postal mailing address and some idea as to what information you are looking for, I will be glad to share what information I have about the family.

Lavonne Marcusen, 1007 Grandview Drive, Audubon IA. USA
