I am writing to you because of your last name and you do work on Doniphan county. I am trying to find the grave of Ole Nelson, b 1805 in Norway. He and his family came to St. Joseph and then to Doniphan county.
I saw a listing in Craigslist for Lincoln, Nebraska. It was for a gravestone that someone found while cleaning out their relative's barn It is for a Ole Nelson, b.21 May 1805 and d. 16 Oct 1862. He supposedly died in Doniphan, Kansas. His wife was Anne Hansdatter. The were married in Norway. Ole was Anne's second husband. I have tried to get in touch with the person who has the gravestone but have not heard back from him. I also am in contact with a relative of Ole Nelson. Ole had a brother name Osul and he is buried in a cemetery there.
It would be nice to get the gravestone back where it belongs if we could find just where it belongs. I do not know how it ended up in a barn in Crete Nebraska. From the picture of the stone posted on craigslist it look to be in prette good shape.
Do you have any idea where I could look or how to go about this?
