I searched the Iowa Rosters for anyone with the first name of Nils and found
only one entry, and he was not a Brekke but a Helgeson. I also tried other
spellings of Brekke and Nils (Niels), but found nothing close. Sorry. Does
this surname show up in family records spelled another way?
I am searching for 2 brothers , Jon and Nils Brekke. Both fought in the Civil
war, could be either IA or MN regiment.
One died and is buried on an island somewhere on the Mississippi River. the
other was killed by Indians. Wish I had more to go by.
