Great Grand Aunt Bina (Gundersen) Nelson 1879-1935

Perhaps half a year ago I was thrilled to find my great grand aunt had left her home in Norway to settle in Chicago.   The post "Great Grand Aunt Jacobine "Bina" Gundersen 1869-1935 - Found!" can be seen HERE.

Now knowing that in the U.S. she was known by her knickname "Bina" , and that her married name was Nelson, in searching again today I made a great find! A picture of Bina. Here she is, the older sister of my great grandfather Nils and the aunt of my grandmother Dagmar.
