Aunt Agda Alida “Lydie” Pearson Novak Parr lived a life of love, loss and adventure. She had no children, so I don’t believe there is anyone left living who knew her personally. This is the first in series of posts examining her life.

I got two emails in two consecutive days from fellow genealogists who had stumbled across my blog. One was interested in an old letter that my ancestor had received, another shared old letters that my ancestors had sent.
An early find in the Grace Lutheran church books is a notation for Nils Olsson, the father of Johanna (Nilsdotter) Pearson. He is my 3x-great-grandfather. I knew he came to Nebraska, but didn’t know for sure whether he ended up near his two daughters, Johanna and Bengta.
