5-Hilma May born to Henry and Hilda on March 18, 1908 in Clear Creek, Carbon, Utah

The interesting thing about this child is she would of had to be the twin of Edward who survived and later lived in Utah.

Was stillborn and is buried in Scotfield, Carbon, Utah

This family was found on the 1910 and 1920 Census for Clear Creek, Utah. The immigration dates do not match on these records, Henry came to US either 1899 or 1901. In addition the family seemed to Americanize their name from "Harsunen" to Harson.
