Mary T. Carlson grew up in the south of England. In 1947, she came to Wisconsin to live with her married sister. In 1948, she married her sister's brother-in-law. Mary and her husband ran a Wisconsin dairy farm for twenty-three years, and later she worked as a medical secretary. In retirement, Mary has been active in her church and community and as a hospice volunteer: and enjoys her fifteen American descendants.
