Infant child of Selina and Oscar Nyberg.
Born 12/21/1921; Died 3/13/1924
Archie is buried along side his siblings Elmer, Ethelyn and Allison in Marion Lutheran Cemetery.
Note: Oscar's name was originally Nyborg, thus the death announcement of his infant son states "Archie Nyborg". Oscar changed his name a little later to Oscar Nyberg. The gravestones for Archie (as well as Oscar and Selina) are under "Nyberg". My mother tells of how my grandmother, Selina, used to put sticks on all the unmarked graves of her infant babies so she would know where they were buried. It was not until the 1940's that a gravestone was placed across their four little graves. Selina was now at peace that she would always know where her little ones were.
See below for a link to Archie's death announcement and photos.
