Jane Park Gardner and Serena Torjussen Gardner: 1910 Census

In my last post, I mentioned that Mary Larsen survived Archibald, and I presented the census records to the end of her life. In addition to Mary, Jane and Serena were also widows of Archibald. They were both enumerated in the 1910 census of Utah. Jane was enumerated in Salt Lake County and was shown living with her children, Reuben and Delila. (1910 U.S. Census of Salt Lake County, Utah, ED #89, Sheet 27A, p. 191)

Serena was living in Spanish Fork with her son Erastus in 1910. He was her youngest son from her first marriage, and although his surname was Evensen, he was listed as Erastus Gardner because his mother's surname was dittoed. Unfortunately, this page of the census appears to have been water damaged, and it is a little difficult to read. (1910 U.S. Census of Spanish Fork, Utah, Utah, ED #199, Sheet 8A, p. 173)

Mary Larsen: Censuses, 1910-1920

After Archibald's death in 1902, Mary Larsen Gardner continued to live in Afton, Wyoming. In the 1910 census, she still had two sons living at home, and she was living next door to her oldest son, Andrew Bruce. Another son, Clarence, was enumerated at the top of the same page. (1910 U.S. Census of Afton, Uinta, Wyoming, ED #137, sheet 1B, p. 163)

In the 1920 census, Mary was living with her youngest son's family. Her second son, Clarence, was living next door. (1920 U.S. Census of Afton, Lincoln, Wyoming, ED #61, sheet 8A, p. 57)

Elizabeth Dowding: Censuses, 1880-1910

Elizabeth Dowding divorced Archibald after 1870 and married Allen Hall on 29 Jan 1875. Following are her census records after she left the Gardner household. Although a search has been conducted, she has not yet been located in the 1920 census. Elizabeth died on 10 Aug 1921 in Salt Lake City.

Sarah Jane Hamilton: Censuses, 1870-1920

Sarah Jane Hamilton divorced Archibald on 15 Mar 1861, and then married Samuel Lorenzo Howard on 1 Apr 1865. In 1870, she was living in Mill Creek, but she later moved to Riverton where she remained until her death. Following are the census entries for her after she left the Gardner household. Unfortunately, some of the entries are difficult to read, so I have marked the household. Clicking on the image to enlarge it might be helpful.
