Notes

  • Several genealogies report that Arlo Halvorson was born in Armenia.This was puzzling, since Halvorson is obviously a Norse name.  When Ifound  the 1930 census, I was able to confirm this was just a sillyerror.  The census reports he was born in Iowa.  His father'sbirthplace is reprotred Unknown, but his mother was born in Norway, asexpected.
