I am looking for the fate of these people from Norway.
Emil Erickson and Maren Anderson married 11 Oct. 1889 in Washburn Wisconsin. (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XR2F-RT8)

If they are properly identified are their names according to census records written in the following ways.

Emil Erickson 1910, 1920, 1930, 1940. Emiel Erickson 1900. Emil Erikson 1905.
Based on the census they had the following children:

Could it be the same persons i find (findagrave) with each gravestone at Woodland Cemetery, Washburn, Bayfield County, Wisconsin, USA?

Does anyone know of these people?, Or have access to obituaries so i hopefully can verify whether this is the right people or not.

Hi,

There is an online tree at ancestry.com that belongs to a granddaughter of Minnie Elise Erickson, born 26 Feb 1893 in Washburn, Minnie is the daughter of Emil Erickson and Maren Anderson. According to the owner of the tree, Emil was born in Eiker, Buskerud, and was the son of Erik Christiansen. She lists Maren as the daughter of Andrew Engedahl.

The graves and all the census records you haved listed are correct, so you have found th correct family.

Hilsen fra Tyskland,

Thanks Brian :-)

I'm not a paying user here so I can not see this information. Will see if I can get access to data anyway.

You wrote Hilsen fra Tyskland. Do you speak Norwegian?

Hello,

I can read Norwegian but do not speak it very well. I live in Germany, but am from America. If you send me an email, I can try to send you copies of records about Emil Ericksen and Maren Andersen.

Maren and Emil are my great grandparents. I'm excited to know how you know of them! Emil's sister Christiana (E Christiana is also buried there). I did know her, but my great grandparents had died before my birth.
