Seming and Lina's Family Bible

Below are pages from the family Bible of Seming and Lina HOGANSON. On the inside cover one can read the date 1880, so it is plausible that they may have received this as a wedding gift. The text reads as follows: "This book belongs to Seming Haagensen Haarset and Lina Larsdatter Hornset of Rendalen."

According to the Minnesota Death Index, Carl actually died on 17 Nov 1936, not the 27th.
