I've "rescued" an old photograph of Carolina JOHNSON which she sent on a
postcard in August 1910 from Roland, IA to her Cousin Miss Bertha JOHNSON in
Jeffers, MN. Carolina appears to be in her 20's at the time the photograph
was taken. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following
information regarding Carolina and her family:
Caroline G. JOHNSON was b. May 1886 in Mason City, IA to parents George
JOHNSON (1843-1920) and Olina or Olena JOHNSON (b. 1859 in Norway-d. 1933 in
Story Co. IA). Caroline was one of 4 children born to this couple including
John C.; Caroline; Christina M.; and Otis Gerhard or Gehord JOHNSON, all
born between 1885 and 1892. Her cousin was Bertha Emelia JOHNSON b. 8 Apr
1890 in Roland, IA to parents John Knudt JOHNSON (1862-1909) and Julia
Jorgine AMUNDSON (1858-1928). Bertha was one of 7 children born to this
couple including, Edward Cornelius; Joseph Martin; Carrie M.; Bertha Emelia;
Julia Johannah; Randall or Randolph; and Clarence JOHNSON, all born between
1884 and 1896.
Bertha died 6 Apr 1975 in Brooten, MN. Caroline's Mother and Bertha's Father
