Do you know my aunt, Linda Zabel? She has numerous records of the family. She is trying to figure out where and when Mr. and Mrs. Harold Olson were married. My great grandma, Mrs. Olson is Stella Hovland, who is Martha Hovland's sister. Linda can be reached at 262.642.7211. Have a great day. -Paula Lee
