She is Bertha in most but Mary in the first one....there are people who think there were two wives, but there si only one DOD for a Mrs. Marie Harstad...

But the date of birth for "Mary Harstad is 1879 in Norway" in the 1905 Census. But Bertha is shown to be 1888 or 1886, so I guess I need to find the wife ( wives) in Minnesota before they married....help please! Thank you! Sandy
