Hi - I'm trying to find out about Carl Holland - who are his parents and if adopted or other.
Carl is listed as the son-in-law within the Jasp and Aasa Braaten family - North Dakota census 1899. He was 2 at the time. Carrie J. is listed as the Braaten's daughter.
Andrew Holland, in that same census, is listed as a lodger with another family.
Sometime later, Andrew and Carrie were married, and Carl became part of their family and had the last name Holland. They travelled to Saskatchewan in the where Carl married Mary, and they had my mom.
I have my suspicion that Carrie may be Carl's mom, but can confirm nothing. I don't know if Andrew is Carl's dad.
