Ernest O Jordal - confirmation

Here is a photo of the confirmation class of 1917 at Calvary Lutheran Church in Lee county, Illinois.


Ernest O Jordal,  grandson of Sigri Gunnersdatter and Ole Larson is located in the front row, far left.

Ernest was the son of Ingeborg (Haldorsdatter Mæland) and Omund Jordal.    His siblings probably attended confirmation classes as the First Lutheran Church, also in Lee county, Illinois.   I do not know why Ernest was the only one who attended Calvary.  

Ernest (entry #1 below) was confirmed November 4, 1917 and was the youngest member of the class.
