  1. I am looking into my family history. Lillian Landon-Solberg would be my step-great-great-grandmother. I found some record indicating she was born 1877 and died 1928. I have no other information right now.

  2. Hello, I am Lisa Solberg, Great Great Great Grandaughter of Peter who Lillian was married to. I do have some information on her, and a picture of her head stone… You can contact me at
