I am looking for the burial of Sven (Swan) Nystrom 1854-1888.
Another person was able to help me find an article about his death in The Atchinson Daily Globe; Atchinson, Kansas; Friday, 23 November 1888. The report came from Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The article mentions he was employed at the Aztec mine in Gallup, New Mexico. It also mentions he was buried by the Knights of Labor.
A few weeks ago, someone posted on Facebook a link about cemetery books posted online at the NMGS website. Although, I did not find an entry for Sven (Swan) Nystrom. I did come across an entry for a Baby Girl Nystrom on page 156 of NM Cemeteries, Vol. 1. While I am still looking for Sven (Swan) Nystrom’s burial. I am now wondering how to find out whether or not this baby girl ties into my family.
In the 1910 US Census in Sully County, South Dakota for his wife Lovisa (Louisa) Nystrom, it shows she is the mother of 9 children, with 9 still living. There are no family stories that I am aware of about a death of a baby. Lovisa had a son, James, born in New Mexico in March 1886 and a daughter, Sadie, in December 1888. There might be enough of a gap in between for another baby.
Other children of Sven (Swan) and Lovisa Nystrom are Albert 1881, Verbena 1882, and John 1885. All three born in Pennsylvania before the family moved to New Mexico.
Any help in solving where Sven (Swan) Nystrom is buried and whether or not this baby girl belongs to Sven (Swan) and Lovisa is appreciated.
