    Notes 
    • 1910 US Census, Minnesota, Fillmore, Norway, Erick O. Hanson, 47, widower, farmer, with children Selma 15, Oscar 13, Julia 11, Olga 9, Esther 8, Leonard 7

      1920 MN Census, Norway Twp., Fillmore Co., John J. Overland, owns farm, free of mortgage, age 67, born WI, parents born Norway, not able to speak English, farmer, with wife Gonlou 65, son Johanas 26, adopted son Leonard Hanson 16, next to farm of Steinar J. and Gjorgina Overland.

       I believe that Leonard is actually Gunlaug's brother Erick's son, as he was born 4/12/1903, the same day Erick's wife, Lina died in childbirth.  Erick never remarried and had 5 other children age 9 and
      under.  I believe that Gunlaug took her brother's child in as this was a common practice.  She would have been 49 years old at the time and according to the Overland history had 10 children. [4, 6, 7, 8]
