    Notes 
    • Known as Oscar. He was left behind with his brother Alfred when his mother and the rest of the family went to the U.S. in 1881. Oscar went to the U.S., or at least left West Berghem in November of 1886 according to the Kånna Household Exam (p. 30, 1882-1891). A later entry (p. 161) in that same Household Examination seems to indicate that Karl Oscar Salomonsson left for Amerika 21 September 1887. Nevertheless, he seems to be the 16 year-old “Carl” living with Frank and Emelie in Cannon Falls in the 1885 Minnesota state census.

      In the 1895 state census, he may be the 19 year-old Oscar Fogelquist living with his mother and step-father in Cannon Falls.

      Apparently married to a Lina and living in the city of Superior at the time of the 1900 census. Sandy Fogelquist, listed as “brother” was living with Oscar and his wife and two “roomers” named Frank Fogelquist and Gust Carlson. In that census entry, Oscar and his wife are both shown as having been born in Sweden and having come to this country in 1879. Oscar is a day laborer born in Sweden in August of 1869. Lina was born in June of 1875 in Sweden and is a domestic. She and Oscar had been married for one year and had no children.

      A different Carl Oscar Carlson married an Alma Justine Abrahamson in Douglas County, Wisconsin, on 7 Feb 1903.

      The best match in the 1910 census is a 43 year-old Carl O Carlson living on Washington Avenue in Minneapolis, single, and working as a hotel porter.

      The best match in the 1920 census is the 50 year-old Carl Carlson living on Upton Avenue South in Minneapolis, single, and working as a “plate shop” for a steel company.

      The best match in the 1930 census is the 61 year-old Carl Carlson, widower, living with the David Tapper family in Minneapolis. That Carl was a widower, came to the U.S. in 1888, and was an iron worker in the bridge industry.

      His application for a license to marry Nellie Shallman was noticed in the Star Journal in its 27 Apr 1944 edition, p.10. He was 75 and living at 4336 40th Ave. S. and she was 65 and living at 2503 Portland Avenue.

      Oscar’s brief obituary appeared in the Friday, August 11th edition of the Minneapolis Tribune. His obit in the StarTribune (as Oscar Carlson) mentions only that he was survived by his sister Ida and brother Alfred.

      Oscar’s last residence was 4245 38th Avenue South in Minneapolis. His funeral was at the Barney Anderson & Son funeral home; the services were at 2 PM on Saturday, August 12th.

      The informant for his death certificate was his sister Ida Deiters who knew that their parents were Solomon Carlson and Emma somebody. Oscar’s residence was 4245 18th Avenue South in Minneapolis. He was a widower, his wife had been named Nellie. Oscar was an iron worker in the building construction trades. He died of pneumonia and heart disease.

      In the 1946 Minneapolis city directory, he is Carl O Carlson, wife Nellie S, living at 4346 40th Avenue S. He has no occupation.

      In the 1948 Minneapolis city directory, he may be the Oscar Carlson residing at the Minnesota Soldiers Home. There is a similar listing in the 1950 city directory.
