But Rudy was in Oregon for the 1940 Census. So maybe he was the first one to venture west.

The obit of the widow of Albert says they came west in 1939.
HAZEL EDELLA REIERSON

Oregonian, The (Portland, OR) - Sunday, October 13, 1991
Hazel Edella Reierson of Northeast Portland died of a stroke Friday in a Portland care center. She was 84.

A private graveside service will be at 10 a.m. Monday in Lincoln Memorial Park.

Mrs. Reierson was born July 18, 1907, in Patterson, N.D. She graduated from State Teachers College in Minot, N.D., in 1929, taught school three years in North Dakota, and then graduated from a beauty school in Minneapolis.

She married Albert Reierson in July 1935, in Kenmare, N.D., and they moved to Portland four years later. Mr. Reierson died in 1975.

Mrs. Reierson opened a beauty salon in North Portland, which she later sold. She then ran the Winnie Winkle Salon in Northeast Portland for 20 years. After it was sold, she continued working out of her home, never fully retiring.

She enjoyed bridge and became a life master at the game.

She is survived by her daughters, Joan D. Smith of Salem and Judith G. Dermout of Portland; sister, Eleanor Heide of Crosby, N.D.; and four grandchildren.

Back to Reinert's father Reier Olson. Could he be the Rier Olson owning the upper right corner of square #14 in this 1896 map of Illyria Township in Fayette County, Iowa?

As a test, I looked at the 1900 census, where Reinert Reiersen figures as Ru*T Ricersen, and selected the family names of the ten families that surround them most closely in the census; Frey, Buchlman, Tchontz, Herboldt, Schmidt, Larson, Coventry, Thompson, Ernst and Klingman, and they are all there in the map, either in square 14 or in the neighbouring squares 13, 24 and 25, in nearly all the cases also with first names matching the head of family from the census.

Hey guys. I just talked to Joan D. Smith of Salem, OR (granddaughter of Hanna Kristine)!

She was very delightful and was a little leary of our first email to her asking her for help.

Thanks again!
