1900 US Census - Petra Tale Bertha (Travland) Johnson

The majority of the 1890 US Census was destroyed by fire leaving a huge hole in genealogy research.

The lack of a 1900 US Census for the two remaining children of Taletta Larsdatter and Peder Pederson Travland, Andrew and Ole Kristian Travland seems to indicate they both passed away prior to 1900.    If I eventually stumble upon those census records, I will post them.

Here is the 1900 US Census for Petra Tale Bertha Johnson, daughter of Susanne (Iversdatter Skaar) and Peter Pederson Travland Jr.

Petra was living in Alto township, Lee county, Illinois with husband Elias and their children, Henry, Joseph, Simon and Andrew.    The Johnson family also had a servant residing at the household, Caroline Halverson and two boarders, Mortie Smith and John Richolson.
