I do have a few Olson's in my husbands family, but not an Albert. My husband's line come from Sweden to New York to California. They came on the ship "Celtic" in 1902, if I can be of help in that line for you let me know.

Thank you Chris Hoyt.  That is very helpful.  We are trying to find out if Albert Edwin Olson, died, or abandoned his family.  We cannot find a death record for him.  My family does not know.
I couldn't find a death record online - just the fact that he is in the 1920 census, but in 1930 Martha is listed as a widow.  Maybe you can find someone who would search the obits for him between 1920 and 1930?

This one has the correct name and location but the birth year is off???  The record is not very complete.
