I have spent a few hours trying to find documentation for the birth and marriage of Maria Stephenson. Her birth date is September 27, 1862, and her marriage date to Hans Olai Johnsen Svare is June 16, 1896. I want to submit a genealogy file to Sons of Norway for a cultural skills award. I cannot find documentation of the two records. I am helping a friend create the file. Maybe an obituary would help. I did find a record for the birth/baptism of their son, and her name was recorded as Maria Johnsdatter instead of Maria Svare. But that hasn't help me find the sources.
