I am, I said

There. Now you exist again and because of the internet can not be forgotten.

For the search engines: Murray P. Lorse, Connie Scheel, Bina Mortenson.

Various owner's book plate and inscriptions found in a copy of Nathaniel Hawthorne's Tanglewood Tales (Houghton, Mifflin and Co., 1883). Bought in a used book store in San Diego, California a few days ago.

  2. The 1930 census lists Bina P. Mortenson and her family living at 702 Aurora Avenue. She was born in 1873 in Sweden, came to the US in 1892, married K. Harold Mortenson, and by 1930 was the mother of four children- Hedwig, Grace, Esther, and one that died prior to 1910.
