Notes for Clara Regine Kjestad
The baptismal record shows the birthdate as 29 June 1887, used in preference to the 29 March 1887 in the burial records. The witnesses to the baptism were Mikkel Johnson and his wife, Guldbrand Oeren, and Joh. Nygaard. She was confirmed on 10 November 1901 at the Linden Lutheran Church. She was attending school at the time of the 1900 census, and was teaching in the common schools in 1910. Clara was the one who provided information for her mother's death certificate and her address was given as Madelia at the time.

Buried in Lot 79 of the Linden Lutheran Cemetery. Recorded as Miss Clara Kjestad, daughter, d. 1969, aged 77, so she must never have married.

Her death is not found in the Brown County death record index.
