The Peterson Grave

Wednesday 7th September 2016

This afternoon FoSOC were very pleased to be able to show Eva Wagstaff (nee Hedelius) the grave of her great grandmother, Maria Berendina Hedelius Peterson. She was accompanied by her daughter, Kersti and Eva’s brother and sister, Krister and Annika who are both visiting from Stockholm. The original headstone although still standing firm had over the years weathered badly and is now virtually illegible hence the new granite plaque that had been installed about eight years ago. Eva and her family were absolutely delighted to see the grave and laid a beautiful bouquet of roses. After they had left Bruce managed to find a suitable container to display them in and our Treasurer has recently received a very generous donation from the family for which we are most grateful.
