Anna Walli, holding John Bernard, and Karen Nervig, 1907.

John Bernard was born in 1907, after his parents arrived in the LaCrosse area. (He often joked that he accompanied his parents on their Atlantic crossing.) Karen Nervig was part of the same immigrant group. She married Ole Walli in 1908. (Her family name appears as Nervig in some records, and Nervik in others.)
