Death and Burial Info for Landelius-1

+5 votes
I am looking for information regarding the death and burial of Augusta Sophia Landelius b. 1857 in Sweden. She would be my great great grandmother. Her husband Gustaf Erikson was my grandmother's grandfather. She later married a John Peterson (between 1900 and 1910 according to census. She should be buried in NE Oklahoma around Westville or possibly Eastern Arkansas around Lincoln, but I can find no information regarding her death date or burial. Census loses her between 1920 and 1930. So, she died during that time (or a small possibility she remarried). I cannot find death and burial info for Gustaf Erikson either. He should be buried in the same areas as I do not have reason to believe they left that area. Any help would be appreciated.

Augusta Peterson, b. 1871, d. 1927.

The Above could be a possibility. Headstone labeled Mother

This name matches and the death date makes sense, but birth year is way off. My issue with finding these folks burial is that these names, especially the surnames (Erickson and Petersen) are like Smith when it comes to folks from Sweden.
