Burial/death info Siri (Sarah) Marie Anderson

Burial/death info Siri (Sarah) Marie Anderson

Looking for burial/death info for Siri (Sarah) Marie Anderson. Daughter of Gulbrand and Anna (Helmey) Anderson. Family notes indicate Siri was born 8 Jan 1865 and died around age 15 of typhoid.

Some family members are found interred at Little Cedar Cemetery, Adams, Mower County. However, I do not see a reasonable match for Siri (Sarah).

I have census info which indicates her two youngest siblings went to live for a time with other families -
most likely after their mother's death in 1875. Perhaps Siri (Sarah) also went to live with another family?


Father:
Gulbrand (Gilbert) Aaberg Anderson
b. 27 May 1828 NOR
d. 27 Jul 1873 Mower Co, MN

Mother:
Anna Marie (Helmey) Anderson
b. 9 Mar 1824 NOR
d. 14 Nov 1875 Mower County, MN

What family members are buried there? Her parents? Sarah may have died before the 1880 census. Since she died shortly after her parents, it seems likely she was buried near them.

Where don't you see Siri/Sarah? Cemetery records? Find a Grave? Interment.com?

Where are her siblings in 1880?

1875 Minnesota Census at Minnesota Historical Society, here is a Sarah Anderson age 10 in Marshall, Mower, Minnesota:

Were the children born in Norway? Was Siri?

No particular reason to think the girl below is "your" Sarah - just a "possible" for the shoebox.
