I am not related to this family, but I am entering graves at findagrave.com for the Nelson Cemetery, in Nelson, Douglas County, Minnesota. The same county as Alexandria, where George Oscar Swaren was born.
I believe the graves I have just entered are for his grandparents,
Anfin/Arnfinn Jørgensen Swaren, b. 1819 Norway and his wife
Anna Swaren, b. 1819 Norway.
Here are the links to their burials:

It's very reasonably priced - only $20 to have a researcher help you. Most things can be scanned and emailed. They have family files and obituaries, going quite far back into the 1800's.
