I have gotten alittle more info since that last post. George William Christiansen was born 23 Oct 1883 in Iowa and on California's death index it lists his mothers maiden name as Beirlin. I was able to locate a marriage online in Iowa for Ole C. Christiansen & Anna M. Beierlein for 5 Nov 1882. They list another marriage for an Ole C. Christiansen & Margaret Crosley 31 Dec 1874. I'm not positive it's the same Ole marrying twice but I am going to attempt to get copies of documents.
