Henry Rudolph LOVEN

Henry Rudolph LOVEN was born 1 Oct 1890 in Decorah, Winneshiek county, Iowa to Johannes "John" and Berte Maria "Mary" (LYSTAD) LOVEN. He was the 3rd of  9 children with 2 older brothers, 3 younger sisters, and 3 younger brothers. Henry married Clarissa Benora HENDRICKSON 31 30 May 1917 in Decorah, Winneshiek county, Iowa. Henry and Clarissa had 3 children. Lloyd Roland was born 7 Jul 1918, Orval was born 13 Jan 1921, and Vivian Delores was born 3 Nov 1932. All 3 were born in Decorah, Winneshiek county, Iowa. Henry became in widow in 1974 when Clarissa died and didn't remarry.

Henry died 29 Jun 1981 in Spring Grove, Houston county, Minnesota. His obit was in the Decorah Public Opinion (Decorah, Iowa) on 1 Jul 1981. I have a memorial for him at findagrave.com. I also have a PDF of his obit and of his and Clarissa's marriage record.

I have Henry on the following censuses:

  • 1895 Iowa Census, page 474, Glenwood township, Winneshiek, Iowa
  • 1920 US Census, page 1A, Glenwood township, Winneshiek, Iowa
  • 1925 Iowa Census (it's for Glenwood township, Winneshiek, but doesn't say that.)
  • 1930 US census, page 6B, Glenwood township, Winneshiek, Iowa
  • 1940 US Census, pages 6B and 7A,  Glenwood township, Winneshiek, Iowa. (The family is split up between 2 pages.)

Now lets give some brief information on Henry and Clarissa's children.

Lloyd married Susie Louise PRICE  28 Jul 1956 in Dallas, Dallas county, Texas. I'm not sure when Susie died, but she died before Lloyd did. He died 18 Feb 2011 of a heart attack. They didn't have any children.

Orval married Lois Marie  BLUME. You can find out more about him on the post I've made for him.

Vivian married Donald Otto Niemann 6 Oct 1962 in Glenwood township, Winneshiek county, Iowa. Donald died 6 Aug 1993 in Newton, Harvey county, Kansas and Vivian died 4 Jan 1999 in Minneapolis, Hennepin county, Minnesota. They had 3 children, 2 boys and 1 girl.
