  • Notes 

    • Methodist per either Carol or Amy but - buried at the Lutheran Cemetery in Ferndale, MI per the Battle Creek Moon Journal obit. and his Death Certificate but, confirmed by Martha Sielaff, he is actually in:
      Gethsemane cemetery (Hebble Funeral Home in Battle Creek)
      10755 Gratiot Avenue

      (313)921-6650
      Section D Lot 440
      Graves 12-13 (Louise is in the other grave)
      The Autumn 1997 issue of Sweden & America in an article about Swedes in Indiana says (p10): "A number of Swedes settled in South Bend, and many were employed in the Studebaker Wagon Works and Oliver Chilled Plow Works. James Oliver was particularly fond of the Swedish workers, many of whom came from Borås and Kalmar, others from Värmand and Småland"
    • Emil Striped Wagons (1900 Census says he was a "Carriage Painter) at Studebaker and at Packard in Detroit. I can remember seeing his brushes.
    • 1st car was a 1912 Ford.
      Lived at 5811 Seneca out Grand River in Detroit. I can remember going there.
    • Backed an Auto Parts Wholesale operation with Dad in Royal Oak after Carol was born, before me. Maybe with Insurance receipts after Louise's death ?
