Here is the family in the 1910 census. They are listed with Otto's patronymic name of Johansen, instead of the farm name Braaten. This is normal Norwegian naming.

In the 1900 census, Otto's parents are living with the family on Braaten. They are Johan Hansen and Kristine Hansen.
Johan is listed as born 21 Oct 1817 in Fet.
Kristine is listed born 1821 in Fet.

This might be Johan and Kirstine in 1865 Census, before Otto was born:

Likely it is Walborg's brother John in this photo, with sons Valter and Stanley:

I am so grateful! Oskar's marriage cert gave a "middle" name of Jahansen but for whatever reason, I never thought to search the Digital Archives of Norway with that name looking for a time before they adopted the farm name!

I sent the link to my mother-in-law to verify if that is indeed a picture of the correct John Braaten. It would be her uncle so I think she would know...and she can read the print! : )

Thank you once again!

Spoke to my mother-in-law. That is her Uncle John Braaten. The two boys in the wagon are his sons Walter and Stanley. Walter is the older one and was born in 1926. Stanley was born in 1928.
Where was this picture posted. Evidently, the date of 1926 must be incorrect.

Hi, glad it helped!

The photo is posted on a web page titled Romeriksbilder. Many of the other photos are interesting as well.

The caption information likely came from the person who donated the photo to the museum. The family may not have dated the photo at the time, perhaps many years later. That's the way it was with most family photos! Before the days of digital dating.

Since your mother-in-law confirms it is Walter and Stanley in the photo, the year must be a mistake.

In a way the photo illustrates a person emigrating, then returning home for a visit. It's emblematic of an experience shared by many. A wonderful photo. :-)

Geni tree for John Braaten, Dagny, Walter and Stanley:

1910 census showed Walborg with brother Oskar born 21 Jan 1902. I posted an emigration record for him (he traveled with Rolf). Oscar J. Braaten born 1902 died 1966 is buried at Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn (where many immigrant Norwegians in Brooklyn are buried). See Green-Wood website, and Find a Grave website, and here:

Hi, yes, sad news re John.

Italian Genealogy Group has Kings county NY (Brooklyn) marriage records through 1937.

In 1928 Ragnhild Braaten married Konrad Sumstad (see IGG website).

In 1934 the Brooklyn Daily Eagle ran a story on death of Konrad Sumstad in an auto accident. Survivors were wife Ragnhild and three-year-old daughter Marion.

1940 census
84 Lawrence Ave, Kings, NY
Iscar Braten 38 Norway
John Braten 12 b NY son
Joan Braten 9 daughter
Betty Braten 6 daughter
Kignnild Sumstad 33 sister
Marion Sumstad 7 niece

The above shows the way the record is transcribed on Ancestry.com - the original is a little hard to read but clearly this is Oscar and Ragnhild.

A person with Sumstad name has created a Find-a-Grave memorial to Conrad:


Might possibly be the same Marion:
