Funeral Card Friday: Anna Gee Aldritt
Today's funeral card is that of my third great grandmother, Anna Aldritt (1805-1890). She was born Anna Gee in Longdon, Staffordshire, England. She and her husband and children immigrated to America in 1852, and they moved to Minnesota in 1856. (Two years before Minnesota became a state). She lived on the shores of beautiful Lake Minnewashta in Chanhassen, Carver, Minnesota until her death in 1890. Aldritt descendants still live on that land today.
Anna is buried in Leach Cemetery, just off Lake Minnewashta.
