John and Martha Erickson Family - Hayward, WI - 1900 Census
Posted by: John A. (ID *****5526) Date: August 03, 2006 at 05:52:51

I am wondering if the Martha Erickson in the family listed in 1900 US Census at Hayward, Sawyer County, Wisconsin, could be the Martha (Nelson) Erickson, the daughter of Catherine Nelson, a widow who also lived in Hayward?

1900 Census - Hayward, Sawyer, Wisc. ___ Sheet 2-B {174-B}
John Erickson . . M 40 1859 Norway M-15 . . . Gen. Store
Martha Erickson . F 37 1862 Norway M-15 6 4
Elmer Erickson . .M 10 1889 Wisc
Raymond Erickson M 7 1892 Wisc
Melvin Erickson . M 4 1895 Wisc
Minnie Erickson . F 1 1899 Wisc

19oo Census - Hayward, Sawyer, Wisc. ___ Sheet 15-A {181-A}
Catherine Nelson .F 68 1832 Norway Wd - 3 L . --------

Not too far distant were found Martha's sister & brother:
1900 Census - Eau Claire, Eau Claire Co., Wisc. {211-A}
Hannah Anderson . F __ 1873 Wisc Wd . 3 3 . Keeps Brdrs
Amanda Anderson . F 6 1893 Minn
Lillian Anderson F 5 1894 Minn
Hazel Anderson . .F 2 1897 Minn
Nels NELSON . . . M 29 1870 Wisc . S (brother) Day Laborer

Back in 188o the NELSON family was enumerated in the census thusly:
1880 Census - Clayton Twp, Polk Co., Wisconsin
Edwin Nelson . M 43 Norway . . M Farmer
Catharinia . . F 47 Norway . . M House Keeper
Martha . . . . F 16 Norway . . S At School
Anna . . . . . F 13 Wisconsin S At School
Nils . . . . . M 5 Wisconsin S -----

The census data would indicate that John Erickson and wife Martha were married about 1885. On-line marriage listings don't seem to connect a John and Martha!

(In 1910 I found this family - John and Martha Erickson and children in Chicago, Illinois.)

Can anyone help with Martha Erickson's maiden name?
---Thanks, John A.
