Classification: Query

I have seen other queries regarding this couple from a female within the last year. Can not recall the name.

Charles C Johnson stated he arrived in the US in 1873 in 1900 and 1910 census. I can not pinpoint his location in 1880. He may have already gone to Wisconsin by 1920.

Caroline Anderson stated she arrived in US in 1880 or 1881 married Charles in Stephenson, Menominee Co in 1882 when she was 16 years old. She stated she was divorced in 1920 census and widow in 1930. Charley was living with daughter Anna L Johnson LaRoche in WI in 1930.
