Note: N130 Edwin married Elizabeth Kisserow, my mother Virginia DeValska's aunt. Elizabeth and Edwin divorced in 1937 or 1938 after he found a girlfriend in St. Paul, where he had been working during the 1930's.
Edwin Olsen, Sr. was a paper hanger and painter until 1917. According to his son, Ed, Jr. he was a "Hell of a wall-paperer" and often did paper-hanging in the homes of wealthy people. He was coming down with consumption and it was recommended he move to the country, so the family moved to a farm near Shell Lake, Wisc. Edwin and his father John built a house there with the help of their new neighbors. Later Edwin decided to supplement the family income by returning to St. Paul for work. He had an apartment in St. Paul and would stay for weeks at a time, while Elizabeth and the boys stayed in the country.
He was living at 63 West College in St. Paul when he died at age 62. His son Albert filled out the death certificate and listed his occupation as an interior decorator with a (Sine?) Painting Company.
