My Finnish great-grandmother,

My Finnish great-grandmother, Lena Hämäläinen Wepsäläinen, is buried in section 12. She died in Denver on 20 Oct 1913 following surgery for appendicitis. This last spring, I finally visited the general area of her grave in section 12--very few markers out there. Her name is recorded in the Riverside sexton records as Alena Websella. The family did use in the U.S.

Thanks, Vickie and Diane, for your work on this project! I intend to get you more info on Lena, when I find the time.
