Larson family in Manitowoc
Posted by: James Smith (ID *****7371) Date: January 07, 2007 at 10:47:08

I am trying to find information about one of the Larson families that lived in Manitowoc in the late 1800's.

The father's name was Peter Larson, b. abt 1830 in Norway. He died between 1880 and 1900, probably in Manitiowoc. His wife's name was Annie C. (Caroline I think), b. May 1846 in Norway and died aft. 1900, possibly in Manitowoc.

I have census records of the family living in Manitowoc through the 1900 Census - at that time Peter had died and Annie was the head of household.

Based on the 1900 census, there were 14 children total. I think all of them were born in Manitowoc Co., but I have only found records for some of them.

1. Unknown Larson - born and died before 1900.

2. Louise Larson - b. abt 1865, d. bef 1880?

3. Oscar Theo. Larson - b. abt 1866

4. Anna M. Larson - b. Abt 1868, possibly marries Josef Melvin Jahobsen on 14 Mar 1895 in Manitowoc.

5. Ellen M. Larson - b. May 1869, possbily marries Edward Hansen 21 May 1895.

6. Julia Larson - b. Abt. 1872

7. George Martin Larson - b. 15 Oct 1874, d. Aft 1930, marries Olga ? 31 Dec 1902 in Manitowoc?. They had 6 Children; Annette J., Ralph, Eshter O., Nannan J., Ellen C., and George M.

8. Ida Louise Larson - b. 14 Sep 1876, d. 6 Sep 1902

9. Martha Christine Larson - b. 2 Jul 1878

10. Emanda Larson - b. Mar 1880

11. Isabel Denora Larson - b. Jun 1883, d. Aft 1930, marries John William Bahr Abt 1908?. they had one child: John R.

12. Walter Charles Larson - b. 16 Jul 1885, d. 17 Oct 1918 (of influenza) in Chicago. Marries Anna Marie Johnson on 8 Jul 1911 in Chicago. They had 3 children: Warren Walter b. 11 may 1912 and Anton G and Walter C, both born on 12 Jul 1915.

* Walter is my G-Grandfather. He died while my grandfather was very young, which is why I know so little beyond his generation. Anna Marie's parents names were Norman Johnson (b. Dec 1854 in Norway and d. Abt 1900 in Chicao) and Paulina ? (b. Feb 1849 in Norway and d. Aft 1930 in Chicago?).

13. Chester Herbert Larson - b. 24 Jul 1887, d. Apr 1969 in Los angeles? He married Alma Kern, they had 2 children: Kathryn and Robert.

14. Daisy Mytrle Larson - b. 6 May 1890 , d. 20 May 1955 in Clackamass Co., Oregon. She married Hugh Lawson Marshall and they had 1 child: Eileen Julia.

I am interested in any information that you have, but especially if anyone knows anything about where Peter or his wife came from in Norway. Please feel free to email me at or post a reply here.

Thanks for any help!
