"Explanation of Name Variations for Marie aka Marianna
Marie is the correct birth name. Because she was born out of wedlock, it may have been assumed that her surname would be the same as her mother, which was Larsdatter (with the Americanized Larsen assumed). However, Marie is identifed as Marie Sørensdatter in her Confirmation Record. Marie's mother Ane Laursdatter did not marry Marie's biological father. The year after Marie's birth Ane Laursdatter married Christen Andersen and subsequent Parish and Census records list her name as Mariane Christensdatter (or Christensen)."
