I am not a relative. I have just been helping someone with research of Theodore and his family here in Oregon.
Theodore first married Olive (Olivia) Johnson October 7, 1892 in Illinois. She died Aug. 20, 1915 in Portland, Multnomah, Or. at the age of 51 years, 7 months and 22 days. She is buried at the Riverview Cemetery in Portland. At the time of her death, her daughter Mrs. Tony Kliskinich (Olive),Theodore Erving, Floyd, Ruth and Myrtle survived her as well as her husband Theodore.
Olivia and Theodore's son Theodore Erving (Ervin) died at the age of 24 years on May 26, 1920. He is also buried at the Riverview Cemetery in Portland, Oregon,
On Oct. 7, 1916, Theodore Knudson married Mrs. Ida M. Johnson. She had two sons from a previous marriage - Harold and Edwin Johnson. Theodore was the superintendent of the Peninsula Shipbuilding company at the time.
Theodore and Ida were divorced some time prior to his marriage to his third wife Jessie I. Herald in 1926 in Hood River County, OR. Ida died Oct. 30, 1941 in Portland, Or.
The following is the obit for Theodore:
