1940 US Census - Lena Travland

Here is the 1940 US Census for Lena Travland, daughter of Lewis Joseph Travland and his second wife, Matilda 'Tilda' Ogel.  

Lewis' first wife was my 3rd great aunt, Iverdine 'Dina' Olsdatter Finnestad, the first of our Finnestad family to immigrate to the United States, along with her sister, Rachel.     Matilda married Lewis in 1882 after Iverdine had passed away at the early age of 28 in 1879.

Lena (line 74) was living in Tuleta, Bee county, Texas and was employed as a postmistress for the US Post Office.

Lena was the granddaughter of Taleta Maria Larsdatter and Peder Pederson Travland.
