Thomas Tobias Travland - death certificate

Here is the death certificate for Thomas Tobias Travland, grandson of Taletta Larsdatter and Peder Pederson Travland.

Thomas was born May 18, 1879 most likely in Milan township, DeKalb county*, Illinois, the last child born to Iverdine (Finnestad) who passed away just 6 months shy after giving birth.    Thomas' father was Lewis Travland.  

Thomas married Stella Adline Berkeland in Bee county, Texas on May 21, 1901.   He passed away in Corpus Christi, Nueces county, Texas on December 5, 1964.

Like his brothers, Peter Andrew and Ole John, his maternal grandparents were Mari (Iversdatter) and Ole Finnestad Sr.

*It is unlikely he was born in Decatur, Illinois as it is over 3 hours south of DeKalb county.
