Death of Clara (Knutson) Nelson and daughter Ester

Edward Nelson, husband of Clara (Knutson) Nelson wrote about the death of his wife and daughter, Ester.    The letter was written in Norwegian and later translated by Eva Sorensen into English.

Below is a copy of that letter.


Edward Nelson's letter


Clara was the daughter of Elizabeth (Finnestad) and Ole Andreas "Andrew" Knutson and granddaughter of Mari (Iversdatter Nord-Skaar) and Ole Finnestad.

Thank you to Clara's great granddaughter, Laurel Armstrong for providing the letter as well as her help in connecting the Nelson family to the Finnestad family tree.
