We have a name with this one.

John + Arlie Swaison
Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Well, this one's going to be a challenge, even if the name is there. I thought Swaison was going to be an easy one, since it is somewhat different (I found one by that surname--not our couple--and it said he was from Finland). But nothing with John and Arlie.

    And it's not like the surname was written sloppily or anything puzzling. It's pretty clear. Maybe it got mangled in all the official records and that's why we can't find anything :(

  2. I think it is more likely the name is Swanson.
