Oliver and Clara Olette Finnestad baptism
Here is the baptism record from Calvary Lutheran Church in Lee, Illinois for Oliver Finnestad, (2nd from the top) and Clara Olette, (7th from the bottom) son and daughter of Ole and Caroline Finnestad. They are the grandchildren of Ole and Mari Finnestad Sr.
Oliver was born October 28, 1887 and baptized July 1, 1888. In attendance were parents, Ole and Caroline, Ole's brothers, Bert and Rasmus Finnestad, Ivar Skaar (which may be a relative of Mari Finnestad - Ole's mother), Nellie Quitno, (I believe this is Caroline's sister-in-law), and Caroline (last name difficult to read).
Clara Olette was born April 5, 1889 and baptized June 23, 1889. In attendance were parents, Ole and Caroline and Sam Quitno (Carrie's brother) 4 others that I am unable to read clearly, nor do I know their relationship to Ole and Caroline, and Nellie Quitno (Caroline's sister-in-law).
