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.
