Deep in the Loess Hills of Iowa, I ran across an old Danish Lutheran church and cemetery, built in 1894. Its a very idyllic setting, see photo below.
As you might imagine, all of the names on the tombstones end in “s-e-n”: Madsen, Johnsen, Sorensen, Mikkelsen, Swansen, Petersen, etc. This particular tombstone tickled my funny bone. Jorgen Jorgensen.
Is this the Danish version of Billy Bob? I wonder if his nickname was Jorgy? Yah, shoor.
