Lindy Nystrom (1931-1940)

Lindy Nystrom

Lindy was the fifth child of Swan and Rose Nystrom. He died in a grain elevator accident at the age of nine and is buried in Cuming County, Nebraska. It must have been a terrible time for my grandmother – just a few weeks before Lindy’s accident, her daughter, Roberta, twin of Robert, was delivered stillborn. This photo hung in my grandparents’ house for as long as I can remember.
