Christain died in Hammond, Indiana March 26, 1949. According to his obit, his wife died in Ladysmith in 1931.
I can't make out the name of the cemetery because the middle section of the whole name is whiteout. I can send you the obit as a PDF file to your home address if you want it.

Margaret was still living in Ladysmith in 1930 census.
Martha was living in Minneapolis in 1930, but her first child was born in Wisconsin. I would think that both woman were possibly married in Rusk county. RP

Do you still want the name of the cemetery in Ladysmith, Wisconsin? The Bruce News-Letter is (was) from my home town and they have a Historical Society and I can check with them to see if they have the Obit for Chris Carlson.
