08-10 Flagstad, Madsen, Wilhelmsen, Wilson Searching for date of death for PETRA MATHILDE (MADSEN) WILHELMSEN, born 15 Nov 1837 at Bøe Farm, Manger Parish, Hordeland, Norway. Believe she died in Douglas County, WI between 1901 and 1915. She was the mother of Claudina (Dina) Flagstad, wife of Charles Flagstad, my great-grandparents. Both Claudina and Charles died in Douglas County, Claudina in 1921 and Charles in July 1939. They are both buried in Riverside Cemetery in S. Superior.

Petra appears in the 1910 Census of Superior, Douglas County as Petra Wilsonage 73, in the household of Bernark Wilson living on Wisconsin Avenue. She is my great-great grandmother. There are Wilhelmsen's. Her daughter-in-law Ellen and granddaughters Margaret, Susie, and Dagmar are all buried at Riverside Cemetery. Also searching for a record of the death of Petra's son Bernhard. He was still living in 1921 according to his sister Dina Flagstad's obituary. I would appreciate anyone's help on this!
