    Notes 
    • Buena’s Aunt Mary Flygare came to America with sisters Catherine and Annette. It took two months on the boat Electric to reach New York, 16 Jun 1862, one week from N.Y. to Omaha by train. Father Jonas Anderson stayed in Sweden—bade good-bye at the ship to his wife and daughter Caroline. He died there in 1864. One daughter, Christina and a brother were left in Sweden. Christina and husband, Gustav Isaacson, later came as far as Wisconsin. Mary came to Utah. For the first few months she made her home with the family of Franklin D. Richards, a church official. She later had employment in the home of Brigham Young. For six years she was retained as a companion to Amelia Folsom Young, with lodgings in the Lion House. After her marriage to Nels Christian Flygare, 27 Oct 1877, they moved to Ogden. Chris Flygare was a man of high character, holding many positions of leadership in the church, one of which was in the stake presidency of the Ogden Stake. Mary passed away at 86 yrs. She was small of stature, very refined, dainty, light golden hair, loved things of beauty. She was of quick wit and humor, precise in actions and thoughts.
