    Notes 
    • Or Karen.

      In the 1900 census (June 19th), Carin Wold was already a widow but had not yet married Martin Bye. She is shown as 44 (born Jan 1856) and is living with her 12 year old son Harold S. (born Mar 1888) and her 7 year old daughter Alma (born June 1892). Also living with them is 3 year-old Hilda Morstad (born May 1897) who is shown as an adopted daughter. Carin is shown as having had 5 children, two still living. The family was living at 120 or 123 Bancroft Avenue (near Channing Avenue on which some of the Byes lived) in a home that Carin owned without mortgage. No occupation is shown for Carin. She is shown has having immigrated in 1885.

      Called Sophie in the city directories.

      The 1910 census form says they had been married for 8 years which would put their year of marriage at 1902 or 1903. The form also says that Carin had given birth to 5 children, only two still living. (Hilda Morstad was now living with Bernard and Jennie Morstad in Minot, North Dakota. Hilda Rebekka Morstad, b. 5 May 1897 in Fergus Falls, was confirmed at First Lutheran in Minot on 28 May 1911. In her confirmation record, her parents are shown as Bernhard E. and Rina Morstad.)

      Immigrated to the U.S. in 1884.

      The 1910 census suggests that Carin, not Martin, owned the home that they lived in on Remington in the city of Fergus Falls (Ward 4) and that the home was free of mortgage in 1910.
