Census Sunday #15 - 1920 US Census

This week, the image I'm posting is page 3A of the 1920 US Census for Glenwood township, Winneshiek county, Iowa. (full image)
This page includes my great-great grandparents and their family on lines 33-40. John LOVEN is cited as a 38 year old married farmer, who was born in Norway. He was able to read and write, immigrated in 1868, and was naturalized in 1880. His wife Berte "Mary" was a 55 year old woman, who was also born in Norway. She was also able to read and write, immigrated in 1871, and was naturalized in 1886 (possibly mis-cited as she and John were married in 1887.) John and Mary had 6 children living at home at the time the census was taken. All of them were born in Iowa and none of them had attended school since 1 Sep 1919. The children at home were: (Adolph) Melvin, aged 31; Carl, aged 26; Julius, aged 28; Anga, aged 22; (Hannah) Violet, aged 20; and Roy, aged 16.
