Headstone Monuments for Johan and Juliane Johansen
Johan and Juliane were both born in Denmark. Juliane immigrated to the United States in 1888. Johan's immigration date is unknown. They were married in Omaha, Douglas Co., Nebraska in 1893. They had two children, Alma born in 1895 and my grandfather Johan born in 1900. My grandfather was always known as Roy T. Johansen. Four months after Roy was born the family moved to Ringsted, Emmet Co., Iowa. They lived in Ringsted for ten years and then moved to Clinton, Clinton Co., Iowa. A year-and-a-half later, Juliane passed away. My grandfather was only 11 years old when his mother died.
Johan remarried, a lady named Mary Waldorf, and they eventually moved out west to Arizona. In 1940 Johan died and his body was sent back to Iowa for burial next to his first wife Juliane.
