Roberta Jenson (Craig) Kenneth Michael Jenson

Marianne Mae Rohne (Jenson)

My father Jim Jenson was born a twin on December 26, 1905, in the farm home, of course.  Both twins were not doing well, and it was not sure they would survive so the preacher was called to come baptize them as soon as possible. As we can imagine everything was rather rushed and both Jim and his twin Jorgen were given only one name.  (NOT JAMES, but in the tradition of Jens and James, a quick "Jim".)

When dealing with official forms, there was always a "middle name" space, and Jim was always told to "FILL THAT SPACE IN".  He started putting in (none) using parenthesis.  Eventually all his official papers showed

Jim None Jenson.

So I suppose "None" will have to identify him throughout eternity
