Census Sunday #27

This week's page is from the 1880 US Census for Glenwood township, Winneshiek county, Iowa on page16. (full image)

On this page, I'm descended from family #129, Hans and Sila HENRICKSON. Hans is cited as a 65 year old farmer from Norway. His wife Sila is cited as a 52 year old woman from Norway. The census page cites that they had 4 sons with them at home - Henry (17), Martin (15), Benjamin (12), and Helmer (7).  All are cited as being born in Iowa. In the same family group, it also has Inga AGNESSON? aged 77. She's cited as living in a different dwelling and her relationship to Hans is cited as "supported." Inga is also cited as being widowed, insane, and born in Norway.
