Thanks for the clarification. The Carlsen family settled in Eugen Oregon and lived there after coming to America.

Norma Carlsen was born 14 March 1909 and died 25 May 1998. She married Theodore Zehrung 14 June 1930 in Eugene. Theodore was born 13 Jan 1905 and died 05 Jun 1987. They had three sons and a daughter. One of the boys died in infancy. The daughter Jean Marie Zehrung Koenig died in 2007.


Edna Carlsen was born 17 My 1917 and died 01 October 2007. She married Harold F. Draper in 27 July 1941. He died in 1992. They had three children, a girl and two boys: Ann Draper Gormley and sons Larry H. and Gary C. Draper.


The middle daughter Ruth Carlsen was born in 1911 and was still alive in 1930. I have been unable to find out what happened to her.
