Mary Ann (Olson) Travland - obituary

Here is the obituary* for Mary Ann (Olson) Travland, daughter-in-law of Taletta Larsdatter and Peder Pederson Travland.

Mary Ann was born April 19, 1862 to Julia and Ole Olson in Lee county, Illinois.    She married Ole Kristian Peterson Travland in 1877 or 1878.   

Mary Ann passed away in Rochelle, Ogle county, Illinois on January 21, 1947.   The obituary mentions 3 daughters, though I've only been able to locate two, Lena and Clara so I'm not sure whether this is an error.   Peter was the other son mentioned in the obituary who had preceded her in death.

*From the January 24, 1947 edition of the Rochelle News Leader.
