The surname in this case quite baffling. Her husband was born Samuel Jørgensen, and used that name until the couple immigrated. Some of their adult children were already established in America, using their Norwegian patronym, which of course was Samuelson (son of Samuel); apparently this was the reason the parents changed their name.
