Hedda Lovisa Andersdotter Holmberg (1827-1920)

Hedda Lovisa was born on 23 October 1827 in Misterhult parish in Sweden. Her parents both died before she was seven. She emigrated to America with the Clauson families in 1868. She married Charles Duncan and they worked at a frontier supply post for a few years. They came back to Kiron with enough money to buy 80 acres in Stockholm section 30. Charles died in 1879 but Hedda Lovisa was a member of the community until 1920 having lived to the age of 92. She died at the peak of the influenza scare so her funeral was held outdoors in the month of February to avoid having a crowd of people inside one building. She is buried in the Kiron Cemetery.
