Notes
In records, called Carrie, Maria C, Maja, and possibly also Maja Katrina. From the biography of her son Charles J. Sandburg, she was a wonderful mother and a good Christian woman, as well as a very good singer. She entertained her children by reading the bible and singing Christian songs and hymns. She maintained a positive attitude through the many trials of her family's immigrant life in the United States. She never learned English very well, but still got along very well with the American people in her community.
