I've just started researching this part of my family and hope to connect with anyone related to me.
My great-grandfather was Anton Olson, born 10-3-1865 in Oslo, Norway and died 7-3-1955 in Cuyahoga Falls/Akron, Ohio.
He married Emilie Francine (Knauer/Knorr) Bellendorf.She was born in Westphalen, Germany (date unknown) and died 8-11-1934but I don't know where she died, probably in Akron, Ohio area.
They were married 7-26-1890.I'm unclear how many children they had but their daughter Helen(Helena) Maria(Marie) Olsen was my grandmother.She was born 7-29-1896 and married Paul Martin Baumgardner (5-21-1896 - 7-18-1944).
Helen and Paul had 3 children: James Russell Baumgardner (7-27-1917, died approx 1994) Helen Jane (known as Jane) Baumgardner (5-18-1920 - present) Barbara Ann Baumgardner (my mother), (12-5-192y - present).
If any of these people are familiar to you please contact me.
