Otto and Emma Molander burial place: Rigmaiden Cemetery
Onne and Mattie Guintard burial place: Perkins Cemetery
Edith Backlund and Reese Perkins and son Ray,: McFatter Cemetery.
Although, it looks like 3 different cemetaries, there are no boundries between Rigmaiden and McFatter, just different entrances. Perkins is across the street from these two. Most people in DeQuincy just refer to all three as the Perkins Cemetary;, but in reality are three cemetries.

According to data I have from Ron Perkins, son of Edith Backlund and Reese Perkins, Edith was born in Louisiana, not Missouri. I believe at one time Ron Perkins was a member of Finlander Forum, but I don't see his name on the member list.

Hello June.

I was reading it wrong. According to US Census of 1910; the birth location for the children are given as:

Alabama for Signa
Mississippi for Edith
Louisiana for Louisiana

So what do I do now?

I don't have any address for Ron Perkins so I don't know how to contact him. June Holden is related to this family. Do you know her? She does not have e-mail. Otto Backlund had a brother Johan Gustaf Michelsson Skriko who was June's grandfather. I'll send you a private mail with more information.
