Eggvena Parish, Älvsborg County, Sweden

 

Photograph supplied by Betty Hanson Pomeroy, a descendant of John B. Johnson and Johanna Johnsdotter, who were baptized in this church at Eggvena, Sweden.  A bit of history of the church is available.  (In Swedish, but your browser will probably translate it to English.)

Some members of the Johnson family visited this church a few years ago.   What a precious moment that must have been.

John B. and Johanna are interred at Our Savior’s Lutheran Cemetery, rural Lily, South Dakota.  Various descendants had the tombstone cleaned.  RIP Johann B and Johanna Johnson.  John B. was a Civil War veteran.
