Frank was born in Rhode Island with Finnish parents and Viola was born in Massachusetts with Swedish parents.

The following is possibly Frank's family in the 1910 census. Eric and Fannie Mangsen are listed at the same address in Worcester as Frank and Viola and also Gustav - 56 Everard.

Hope this helps. - Wilma

Thank you for these information.

It is the right Mangsens in Census 1910 in Worcester, if the date is like these.

Erik A. Mangsen b.1887 (b. in Finland)
Fannie b. 1883 (b.Nyholm in Finland)

Frank R. b.1905
Gustav E. b.1908

Wath is about Viola in the 1910 Census,
I think her birth name will be Nordgren and b.1908 in Mass.
