She’s somehow related to Ole Olsen and Winifred Dora Reeve.
Legit had no idea the Olsens were Norwegian.
Out of curiosity, where did you think the name was from? Olsen is Danish or Norewegian, Olsson is Swedish. They are all pretty recognizeable Scandinavian names.
Correction. Found info on Mary Rose Fuller. She was born the daughter of Arthur Louis Fuller and Nell Esther Rose. Both seem to have been German and English.
