Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

Gustina's name appears to be "Niolt..." on daughter Emma's death certificate. It's difficult to make out the writing but the first letters appear to be correct; however I can't determine the last characters. (Maybe "Nioltyar"?)

She had borne 8 children by 1900, but only 8 were living then according to the 1900 US census. Although Mathilda is not listed in the census, it is quite possible that she was married by 1900 and out of the household. The other six known children are in the census, leaving an unknown child. This child was likely born in the longish period between William and Lena (maybe about 1890) and died before 1895 (since the child isn't listed in the 1895 MN state census).
