From left to right are: Leif Jensen (1886-1955); Lena Elaine Olsen (1860-1938); possibly Agnes Hansen (1891-1980) or Maria Elizabeth Winblad (1895-1987); Otto Perry Winblad (1902-1977); and Andrew Havig Jensen (1861-1930) in Chicago or Lake Geneva in 1929. In 1929 Otto Perry Winblad; Marie (Mae) Elizabeth Winblad; Naida Muriel Freudenberg (1915-1998); and Selma (Sally) Louise Freudenberg (1921- ) traveled from Jersey City, New Jersey to Chicago, Illinois and then to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin to visit Lena Elaine Olsen (1860-1938) aka Hannah Eline Olsdatter and Andrew Havig Jensen (1861-1930). Lena was the sister of Otto and Mae's mother. Naida later wrote a fictionalized account of the trip and had it published in the Jersey Journal. 75 years later, Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) flew to Chicago on June 18, 2004 to meet with the descendents of Andrew and Lena.
