The family is on the 1920 census in Hennepin county (MInneapolis), Minnesota.

I would think those children are not living anymore.

The 1910 census, shows that this is probably the right Charles, immigration year is 1894.

I think this is the right birth for Florence L. Johnson. I was hoping it would show Hilda's maiden name (Flicknamn) but it just shows Hilda.

Charles W and Hilda Johnson had a daughter Esther L. Johnson on the censuses, and here is her birth information, which adds a middle name to the mother:


name: Esther Lennia Johnson
gender: Female
birth date: 24 Jun 1902
birthplace: Minneapolis, Minn
race: White
father's name: Carl W. Johnson
father's birthplace: Sweeden
father's age: 28y
mother's name: Hilda Louise Johnson
mother's birthplace: Sweeden
mother's age: 30y
indexing project (batch) number: C00699-4
system origin: Minnesota-EASy
source film number: 1498863

Here he is using Carl W. Johnson, instead of the americanized Charles.

The daughter Florence's birth adds the mother's (Hilda Johnson's) place of birth. It says Chicago City, which I think is Chisago City, is in Chisago county, Minnesota.
