Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

The 1900 census may indicate her parents were Lars and Allen Peterson, both born in Norway. Betsy was 18, and her siblings were Peter L. (24), Ole (21), and Anna (8/??? 1883). The family lived in Curran, Jacson County, WI. Peter was born in Norway, the others were born in WIsconsin. Lars, Allen and Peter immigrated in 1887. [1900 U.S. Census]

The 1910 census implies this was a second marriage for Betsy. However, it also implies that both Oscar and Harold were Betsy's children. [1910 US Census]

The 1920 census may give Betsie's age as 37 on 6 or 7 Jun 1920. Her parents were born in Norway. [1920 U.S. Census]

Her son Raymond's birth certificate (made 25 years after the fact) shows her age as 33 on 30 Oct 1915.

In the 1930 census, Betsie is listed as the head of the household. Was Henry dead, divorced, or just separated?

Betsie's last name on son Raymond's death certificate is recorded as Pederson.

Was she born 18 Jul 1882?
