One other child was born to Klemet and Josefine:

Birth Date: 11 Mar 1901
She appears to have died before 1910 census.
Torvald Wilhelm Torkildsen came to Canada and used the name William T. Summers (my husband`s Grandad). He was married twice - second wife was Lydia Virgoe. First family was in the Burlington Bay area of Ontario.
We have a letter in Norwegian from Nikolai but not sure if Anna Torkildsen had a husband Nikolai or if it was the brother. We also have two photos: One labelled Anna and Nikolai; the other of Karoline, husband and two young girls. From what Grandad said, Nikolai was the only survivor of WWII - but are there two Nikolai?
Any info on any descendants of Torkel and Anne Kirstine, Klemet and Josefine and verifying loss of family members during WWII would be appreciated.
