Emil Ellertson married Mary Ann Beattie on 20 Aug 1883 in Cambridge
Emil was 27 and a painter from Norway
His parents were Andrew Ellertson & Lena Olsen
Mary Ann was 26 from Ireland
Her parents were William & Barbara Beattie
We knew Mary Ann as Annie but census data confirm that they were the parents of my maternal grandmother, Caroline, and her siblings.
Therefore, this search is a dead end and I am ending it and will be opening a new search for Andrew Ellertson (or Ellertsen).
