Ole Larson's Folks

Died this day in 1928: Axel Theo Moen. He is “only” my first cousin, twice removed, but at least he is a double cousin. Axel’s father is a brother of my great-grandfather Gunder Moen, while his mother is a sister of my great-grandmother Marie Volden.

Outside the family: born this day in 1905 on a train in Austria: Maria Kutschera (m. von Trapp), matriarch of the Trapp Family Singers, immortalized by Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music.
