Looking for info relating to George and Helga Johnson. Last known to live in Orfordville, Rock, Wisconsin in 1940 census. They had 2 daughters; Anita Bernice and Hazel. I think Anita is buried in the lutheran cemetery at Orfordville(d. 1936). Anyone info on what became of George, Helga and Hazel will be appreciated.

There are 17 Helga Johnsons buried in Wisconsin at Find A Grave. Why don't you check them out and see if any of them are yours? Without further information, it's hard to help as Johnson is such a common name in Wisconsin.

Thank you, i have checked Findagrave and see no matches. Both George and Helga were born in 1888 and emigrated from Norway to Wisconsin in 1907. They appear on census up to, and including 1940 in Rock County. After that i cannot locate them or daughter, Hazel.

I am also looking for information on this family. I am helping my cousin who is in Norway. Perhaps you are related! I would be interested to hear if you found any information. Hazel Johnson seems to be a common name.

Let's add that 1940 census mentioned. If you know the names of the parents of George or Helga, please add those. Parents' names appear on death records, so those names could lead you - and the forum - to a date and place of death for George and Helga. (In fact it could be difficult to identify them without that information.) Basically, add as much as you can about them. Thanks!
