I am looking for the grave of Vendla Josefa Lindqvist, or any information about her. I believe her family moved to Riverton, MN in 1918. She passed away on November 10, 1919.

I have done some searching online, and found directories of what seem to be three local cemeteries, with no results. I don't know if there are church cemeteries nearby.

The last name could have been spelled Lindquist. Her daughter was Ellen Euphemia (Lindquist) Shogren, married to Edwin. The family left the area in 1920.

Vendla was born September 1, 1835 in Karis, Finland, marrying Gustaf Adolf Lindqvist in 1856. He passed away in Finland in 1892.

I live in Minnesota, and would also welcome advice on where to look if I drove to the Riverton area, or perhaps which city office to contact. Thanks.
