I always assumed the couple with Kristian & Mary [below] were friends or neighbors.
But I wonder - could this be his sister Kristine & her husband Kornelius Olsen?

I recall being told by some family member that Kristian Danielsen never collected Social Security in his older years as he was not a U.S. citizen. However, in checking the federal censuses for his family, all indicated he was a naturalized citizen. Eventually I searched for and found his naturalization papers. Funny that his own family did not think he was a citizen...?! Could be he did not collect S.S. because for most of his working years he was self-employed [as a butcher].
