Anna (b 1885 Iowa)`s parents both came from Torpa ,Nordre Land ,Oppland
County (Martin and Olive Olson ,later divorced).
I didn`t call anyone this morning. I am living in Norway.
I am not related to Walter May Mitchell ,but his wife Anna Olson Mitchell
was a 1st cousin of my greatgrandmother. Walter`s obit 1951 mentions he had
2 grandsons ,and it also lists 4 siblings. Might be worth finding
descendants of them to locate Walter and Anna`s son. Walter M Mitchell`s
siblings mentioned in 1951 was F M Mitchell ,Portland ,Oregon ,Clyde
Mitchell and mrs Rose Strube of Sioux City ,IA and Mrs Charles Hast ,Los
Angeles.

I have had luck tracing familymembers before ,by going through their spouses
siblings descendants.

Erik in Norway
