    Notes 
    • Two children died, according to Ed, in addition to the seven shown. (This is incorrect: two of Maritís children did die relatively young but there were only 7 in total.) In the 1910 census, Mary claimed to have had 7 children, all still living.

      According to Ed, Marit and Elling lived in many parts of the country but, for the last years of their lives, lived in Omak, Washington. Jan confirms this.

      On her death bed, Marit Lee thought she was again on the boat coming to America.

      At the time of the 1900 census (June 27th), the Lees were living in Pembina County in North Dakota in Walhalla Village. The family consisted of Elling H., 28 (born October 1871), Mary, 24 (born June 1875), Harry O., 3 (born August 1896), and Floyd M., 1 (born July 1898). Elling and the boys were born in Minnesota. Mary emigrated in 1882 and was a naturalized citizen. She and Elling had been married for five years. She had borne 2 children, both still living. Elling was a salesman and they rented their house (which was not a farm). Mary would have been pregnant with Ella at the time of the census-takerís visit.

      Ilone says: Mary was a wonderful, loving grandmother who always kept very busy helping other people. Ilone always felt as if she were her favorite grandchild but later learned that every grandchild thought that he/she was the favorite. Her cookie jar was always full of gingersnaps. She was a very active member of the Presbyterian church.
