1930 US Federal Census - Mary Olson

In 1930, Ole and Mari Finnestad's granddaughter, Mary Olson (daughter of Elizabeth Knutson) was living in the city of Rochelle, Ogle County, Illinois.

Mary was living with her sons Orville, Elmer, Olaf, Stanley, grandson Marvin and daughter-in-law Ann.

Because Orville is listed as a widower, Elmer and Olaf are listed as single and Stanley is listed as having been married only two years prior, it seems most likely that Ann's husband was William.
I do not know why he wasn't living with his wife at the time, other than it was "The Depression" and he may have gone off to find work in another place.
