    Notes 
    • According to Clifford Mohr, Thorwald and Emma were “christened in the same church in Copenhagen and only met in Chicago later on.” Based on church records, this seems to be in error, as Thorwald was christened in St. Mattheaus Kirke and Emma was christened in Frederiksberg Kirke.

      Clifford Mohr’s birth certificate specifies that he is the second child born to Emma. This indicates that the “other Grace” was actually born before Clifford, not after William as originally assumed.

      Family lived with Emma’s father at the time of the 1910 census. Family lived at 150 W. 5th Ave, Denver in 1920 and 790 South Race, Denver in 1930. [3, 9, 11, 13, 20, 21, 22]
