A few interesting things about this census.

  1. Her name is misspelled as Karon instead of Karen.
  2. She's using the Lund last name instead of Funk.
  3. Karen was living alone in a house in Plain City. 
  4. She never did end up naturalizing.
  5. She is listed as having had 6 children with 4 still living. I have 7 children's names (although only 4 would be living in 1900).
