From Cornelia Martinson Lawrence:

Christian's mother died from what we have heard, when he and Martinius were very young and his father married again. There were two children from that marriage, Albert and Mina. i do not know anything moe than that. We heard that Christian and Martinius left home when they were very young because of the stepmother.

Christian arrived in Boston on April 24, 1902 from Norway via Liverpool, England on the S.S. Invernia (Cunard LIne). This information we found in the Archives Center (federal) in Waltham, Ma. where Clara and I spent many, many hours.

I have been unable to find out when she landed and where in the U.S.. The Archives Center in Waltham, Mass. says the S.S. ANgelo did not come to Boston and it appears that the records for a few years in that area of time are lost.
