Hi my name is Janet. I am looking for info on my Grandpa's Family, last name "Torstenson" they came over from Norway in 1902.
My grandpa's name was Andrew Torstenson. His Parents were Paul and Anna. I found them in the 1920 Census listed in Seahurst,King Co, Washington.The last name is spelled wrong but that happens a lot on census i have found out! But it is them and they have a son listed right above them so I know it is them.On there they have the 2 youngest daughter's listed as Jennie B: abt 1902-03 and Gertrude B:abt 1904-05. Both were born in Minnesota, at least that is what the 1910 Bowman Co, North Dakota Census {where they were befor Washington}and in the 1920 Seahurst,King Co,Wa. Census. Paul Died in 1923 and is buried at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery on Queen Ann Hill in Seattle,on his records from the funeral home,it has his Daughter Jennie Listed as married the last name is "Woods" so it says, Jennie Woods, 616 Columbia St. Seattle,Does anyone know of Jennie Woods? It also has listed as a daughter Mrs. L.C. Solomon{this might be his son's Chris's widow or an older daughter named Anna?}also listed is Pauline Hansel {her name later changed to Monoe}and Gertrude Torstenson {not yet married} and son Frank Torstenson of Alaska, son Andrew Torstenson {my grandpa}of Glacier Park, Montana. If any one knows anything of these people please contact me at : torstensonadams@yahoo.com
