General Notes and Anecdotes
As yet, there is no direct documentation that Olaf Johnson was Evelyn's deceased twin. However, that connection can be made indirectly. (1) In his father Henry's obituary, Henry's living children with Betsy are identified, including Evelyn and Helen. They are all known to this database, one-for-one. It mentions only one dead child of that union, Olaf. (2) The birth certificate of Evelyn notes the fact she is a twin, but doesn't provide a birth order, suggesting the child was stillborn. This is the only reference to a dead child in the documentation that is known. The fact of Evelyn's twin's death is further confirmed by an interview with Helen, she stated that Evelyn had a twin that was either stillborn or died in infancy.
