In 1925, the Iowa census includes excellent detail on each individual that informs us about family relationships and details on each individual. Amanda has married Olaf Jensen, also of Danish extraction, born in Kansas. On Olaf Jensen's name the A is open and was mistaken for a U by the Ancestry transcriber. Most of the As on this page are open like that, including the A in Denmark, which looks like Dunmark in many instances. Amanda also looks like Amunda. (It is possible that the enumerator actually meant to spell the name Oluf, based on the sound if he was an Anglo, and unfamiliar with this common Scandinavian name. But on the other evidence of the page, I have kept the normal spelling of Olaf.)
