1930 Arvid and Karin are living in Weller Township in Henry County, Illinois. This area encompasses Bishop Hill, which was a village founded by Swedish immigrants in 1846. In the seven years since they arrived in the United States, they have had two more children: Alice, now age 4, and Dennis, age 2. Gunnard is 9 years old. This census shows that Arvid and Karin were renting the home they lived in, which was on a farm. The listing also indicates that they had a "radio set." Additionally, it shows their ages at their first marriage, which indicates that they were married 10 years before, or in 1920.
