Rachel Vallem - burial

Rachel was the 6th child born to Ole and Mari Finnestad.

Rachel is buried at the Lawnridge Cemetery in Rochelle, Illinois.

Rachel was born December 2, 1853 and died April 8, 1932. Coincidentally, her older twin sisters, Bertha and Iverdine were also born on December 2nd.

Rachel's husband, Lewis is buried in Norway; I do not have a photo or exact location but believe it is a cemetery in the village of Valheim.

Rachel's last name was spelled as 'Vallum' rather than the correct spelling of "Vallem" on the marker.
