Anyone you knows descendants or anything about this family???
Erik in Norway
From Monona County History:
(speaking of Haakon - and I will transcribe the whole of it later - no time
right now)--"He was born Nov. 15, 1862 in Aasleigard, Norway and one of 15
children. Immegrated to the US in 1883 and settled in Dunlap, Iowa. On
April 27, 1896, he was united in marriage to Mary Olson. Mary was the
daughter of Martin and Olive Olson, born June 14, 1880 in Torpin,
Norway.(April could be a transcription error--but then, maybe not). She
came to the US at the age of one year. 6 children, etc.
I have finally found out where my relative Martin Olson lived.
Martin was born as Martinus Andreasen in Norway 22 Oct 1856 ,and emigrated to America 1880.
When his sister Olive Larson died in January 1935 Martin was still alive ,and was living as Martin Olson in SOLDIER ,Monona County ,IOWA by then.
He was married in Norway to Olave/Olive ,born 2 Jun 1856 who was my great greatgrandfather`s sister. They had 2 children born to them before they emigrated:
a son Andrew ,b. 31 Dec 1878 ,and
a daughter ,Mary ,b. 14 Apr 1880 ,both in Norway.
I`m very interesting in knowing if anyone knows Martin and his family.
Any help with his descendants is greatly appreciated. I only know of theese 2 children.
Really hope for help here
