Notes:  Florence Stevenson was born in Jan 1899 in Pennsylvania.  Her parents were Lewis (or Louis) Stevenson and Alda Benson.  Lewis had emmigrated from Norway in 1891, and was a day laborer.  Alda had emmigrated from Sweden in 1890.

In the 1900 U.S. census, the Stevenson family was living in Ward 1 of Erie, Erie, Pennsylvania.  It included Lewis, age 36, Alda, 22, and daughters, Ester, 5, Garda (or Yarda), 3, and Florence, 1.    Also in the household was Alda's father, Nerse (or John) Bensen, age 54, who had emmigrated from Sweden in 1888, and was a day laborer.

Lewis and Alda had two more children, Oscar and Lucile, and divorced.  In the 1910 U.S. census, the family was living in Ward 1 of Erie, but it is unclear if in the same residence.  Alda was now 32, Ester, 16 and a nurse girl for a private family, Florence, 10, Oscar 8, and Lucile 4.  John Benson, 63, was no longer working.
