Sometime before 1920, the Halversons: Lewis, Johanna, Lillian and Ella moved to Gary Minnesota.  Gary is in Norman County.

More photos were taken, after all if your father is a photographer…

Census Info:

In the 1940 Census they are found in Minneapolis in Hennepin County Johanna is 60, Lillian is 34, Ella is 30 and Jeannette is 20. 

 Lewis died  April 15 1930.

Johanna died June 30, 1967 

This whole family seems to be gone.  The strong tie to Norman County and St. Johns Cemetery seems to be Johanna’s parents Olof and Maria.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Maybe some distant members of the family will find this someday and want the pictures. Sad to think all may be gone with none not even distant still living.

  2. I think Lewis and/or Joanna had a bunch of brothers and sisters - so there ought to be some cousins out there!

  3. That photo of Jeannette with the umbrella is just darling. It would be so sad to think no one is left in that extended family. Surely a distant cousin???
