- Her surname was also spelled "Svenson" in genealogist Paul Orr's notes. According to her obituary, her brothers' surname was "Anderson." Swedish naming is problematic, so possibly her father was Anders Svenson, she kept that name, and her brothers become Andersons based on their father's given name.
