Knutson research at a standstill

Surnames: Knutson, Knutsen, Knudsen, Knudson, Klath, Klatt, Clath, Clatt, Kleth, Cleth
I have been unable to find information on my gg grandfather.
I do not have much to go on.
I have documentation from his family (ssi apps and birth certs)that have conflicting information on his name.
Axel/Alec/Alexander Knutson b in WI is all I know.
His wife, Carrie Klatt/Kleth Knutson is listed in her maiden name on the 1900 census with her kids:
Guy, Meda and Arthur Clat.
In 1910 it lists Carrie and her kids under Knutson:
Meda and Francis Knutson.
In several city directories it lists Carrie as a widow of Alexander.
Sometime after Arthurs birth (1894) and before the birth of her daughter Francis (1905) Carrie married a Knutson, and said Knutson passed away, but I have been unable to identify who that is.

I reviewed your posting history, there are other threads with responses and data you haven't included here. Has the data in those responses proved true?

This post doesn't have good detail to help you with your brickwall. Detail (dates and locations) and a timeline will help others understand where to help you.

>In several city directories it lists Carrie as a widow of Alexander.<

It was not unusual for divorced or women abandoned by their husbands to cite themselves as a widow.
