Wow...glad to find this site~! I am stumped. My great great Aunt Inga Gudmundson was married in Utah to Albert John Knudsen in Springville. I have located all of her siblings burial locations. Her's is the only one I cannot find. I have a death date, but nothing comes up on ancestry.com and there isn't a death cert in Utah for her. Several of her siblings left and went to California. I just found a Mrs. Inga Knudsen on a city directory in Los Angeles for 1929. The death date I have is 10 Aug 1930. Also...this is smack dab in the great depression and there is an Inga Knudsen ON THE FARM in L.A.

Hi, Welcome and glad to hear from you!
Thanks for your question...it's a tough one though so I am not sure how much we can help, but I will look for a solution.
Just out of curiosity, how did you hear about us?
Any additional information that you can share? You have a death date ...but no location, correct?
All the best,
Correct Jim. Just the date.
"Just answer" website popped up on the side of my google.mail in the advertising area...never noticed it before.
Very interesting! Thanks for the feedback on the marketing.Yes, True Blue Through and Through.My feeling is she must have remarried. How old was she when her husband died?
30 born in 1881
I have an errand to run Jim.... I will be back online to check in a few hours.
I see they were living in Provo in 1910 just before Albert died living on a farm there and married for 4 years with no children.Did she have a middle name? Were you able to find her on the 1920 census after Albert died and was she listed as a widow? I can't imagine her continuing on without getting remarried at such a young age and no children. But you never heard of children (your cousins) being born from her did you?I had an Aunt growing up that all I knew of her was she was a Stevens, but came to learn she had married twice and that is how I finally found her death record.Without knowing the right last name at time of her death it may be tough to find her. If she had survived to get a SSN it would have helped, but it doesn't sound like that is the case if she died in 1930.So where was she in 1920?
Nope...checked the 1920 census and she wasn't on it for Provo...where she and XXXXX XXXXXved when he died.
Good question...don't know where she is after Albert died...
Inga Ronalde Maria Gudmundson Knudsen full name
Except....there is a Mrs. Inga Knudsen...1921... City Directory for Los Angeles...if you have ancestry.com access...
Thanks...I will look up those references on Ancestry and see what else I can find.
It is Albert Sheldon...Gudmundson. Too coincidental for sure.
Thanks for the additional information. I will get back to you.
1930 Census "Inga G. Weller" married...Utah/Norway/Norway
No INGA at all in the book for 10 Aug 1930 at SLC Cemetery. Robin just checked. July - Sept.
It looks like from this 1930 Census that you may have a match and a reason that you haven't been able to find her before. She probably remarried a "Weller" and had a son named Samuel. Then for whatever reason she was sent to a mental institution for women in California by 1930.
If she did study holistic medicine in Chicago maybe she did become a nurse. There is a reference of a nurse named Mrs. Inga "G" Knudsen in L.A. in 1916 in the Voter Registrations...leaving her plenty of time to remarry a Weller in California, have a son Samuel, and then be institutionalized by 1930. She probably died that same year as the census. I will look for her death index under Weller in CA.
It looks like from the additional voter registrations in California that I looked at that any other references to a Mrs. Inga Knudsen in L.A. are all referring to a different Inga and her husband Anton a laborer living on Reseda 1924 - 1954.
However, the 1921 directory for L.A. shows the two at different addresses...one for him on Hyatt and one for her on Angelus av., so perhaps there are two Mrs. Inga Knudsen's in L.A. about the same time.
From the 1916 Voter Registration we find Mrs. Inga "G" Knudsen, a nurse, living atXXXXX, but it doesn't show the names prior to hers so I can't see if Anton is listed at the same address.
That may be a lead or just another reference to the same Mrs. Inga Knudsen who is listed with Anton in the 1930 census as being born in Norway abt 1883.
The first impression for me is still the same, in order to survive on her own she needed to remarry so look for the Weller connection.
How's my service been? Okay, Good, or Excellent?
Awesome...though it isn't a mental institution, it is a poverty farm...for the great depression. I had found the other Inga as well. You have given me more food for thought. I am surprised a marriage doesn't show up in CA. I shall persevere! Thanks Jim.
Here's more information on the current facility. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rancho_Los_Amigos_National_Rehabilitation_Center
The last page of the census for the Farm shows it also had a psycho ward. She is listed as being in the Infirmary IV so I may have jumped to the conclusion it was a mental institution.
I did find also a Frank Weller in 1928 in L.A. on the Voter Registrations. He is listed as a Lighthouse Keeper for the L.A. Harbor. Only Weller listed in 1928. By the way he was a Republican!
Could be a connection between the two. I didn't find a marriage record for them however.
I will mark this question as answered and would appreciate your kind rating of my services at Okay or better.
Thanks for the opportunity to serve your research needs.

Go Mitt! That gave me a good laugh. Thanks Jim. She will let me find her when it is time. She has a niece that is still living in Arizona who has one of her middle names, though Inga died when Lillias was only 8. I guess a phone call is in order. Again...thanks!
Provo 3rd ward records destroyed in fire for 1910-1912 ugh.
Too bad on Provo Ward records but I am sure she will show up soon. The veil is thinning. Go Mitt!
Thanks for your positive review. Much appreciated!
