Marion Vallem Sanderson, Bertha, Marvin and Ingmond Finnestad - confirmation

Here is a photo of Ole and Mari Finnestad's great granddaughter, Marion Vallem Sanderson with her confirmation class of 1925 at Calvary Lutheran Church in Lee, Illinois.

Marion Sanderson is sitting in the chair on the far left side.   Bertha Finnestad is sitting in the same row to the right of the Reverend.

Ingmond Finnestad is in the second row from the top, third from the left.   Marvin Finnestad is in the same row, fourth from the right.

Below is the church's ledger for the confirmation class:

The bloodlines of Marvin, Ingmond and Bertha Finnestad were not related to Ole and Mari Finnestad.  Bertha, Marvin and Ingmond were the children of Elizabeth and Alfred Finnestad.   Ingmond would eventually marry Mildred Knutson which connected Ole and Mari Finnestad's descendants to the Sanderson family.   For more on that, read my previous post by clicking on the link.

Marion Vallem Sanderson was the daughter of Ellen Marie/Mary (Vallem) and Seward Sanderson.  Her  grandparents were Rachel (Finnestad) and Lewis Vallem.
