Ellis Island listed the wrong year of arrival for Laurits, he arrived in 1905 (copy from Ancestry attached)

After arrival, he apparently decided to be younger:

In 1910 census Lawrence Bertelsen was in Union County New Jersey census, age 23, unmarried.

Later censuses show him in Morris County NJ married about 1911 to Emily born in England, his age listed as 31 in 1920, 45 in 1930, and 54 in 1940.

In 1930 they had 8 daughters and 2 sons: May 18, Ethel 17, Lawrence Jr 16, Elsie 14, Evelin 11, Margery 10, Dorris 9, Gordon 5, Dorothy 4, Lois 15 mos.

------------------------------------------------------------

1930 census of Passaic County New Jersey lists Bert Bertelsen 44 Denmark married to Thora 42 Norway, and they are still listed there 1940, no children.

Thora's gravestone has a blank space where Bert should be listed; maybe he returned to Denmark when she died?
