I am researching my dad's Swedish grandparents in Ashland. He says they were members of Nidaros Evangelical Lutheran Church. Can any old timers tell me anything about its history and what became of it? Dad remembers the pastor's name was Houkum.

I am particularly interested in finding a date of death for August Sandberg, who immigrated from Västra Tunhem, Ålvsborg, in 1888. His wife Elin and son Karl joined him in Ashland in 1890. Son Hilmer was born in Ashland in 1895.
August died a few days after a horrible accident in a blast furnace. The date will be in 1898 or 1899, according to family story.
Elin took in boarders to survive, and in 1900 married again, one of her boarders, Anders Fred Sundberg.
August was buried in Mount Hope Cemetery, but I am told a street widening obliterated the grave.
I have a few queries out to the state, but there's nothing like a good parish record. Thanks for any help you may be able to give.
