Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)
Birth Date: This database uses November 1854 .The 1895 census gives a birthdate range from 2 Jun 1853 to 1 Jun 1854. [census-us-mn-1895-ottertail-dora-1]
Birth Location: This database uses Russia. Her death certificate says she was born in Germany. Is this due to changing borders over her lifetime? Note that the informant, son-in-law Edward Marks, also has an ambiguous birth place. [death-emma-marks-1913]
Given Name: This database uses Augusta. The 1900 census uses Justina. [census-us-1900-ps-mn-ottertail-156-4a]
Given Name: This database uses Augusta. The 1895 Minnesota census uses Gustina. [census-us-mn-1895-ottertail-dora-1]
According to the 1900 census, both of Gustina's parents were from Russia. [census-us-1900-ps-mn-ottertail-156-4a]
Check on changing borders with respect to birth location.
Gustina's surname appears to begin "Niolt[y or z]..." on daughter Emma's death certificate, but it's difficult to make out. The cause of death is also difficult to read, but it was "sudden". [death-emma-marks-1913]
As reported in the 1900 census, Gustina had borne 8 children, but only 7 were living, and 6 were listed. Mathilda is not listed, but since she was 21 and likely married or at least independent, she might have been out of this household. The dead child may have been born in the longish period between William and Lena (maybe about 1890) and died before 1895, since they aren't listed in the 1895 census.
