Talk about hitting pay dirt on the first attempt! I couldn't have expected
to be more lucky than this. Thank you so very much for helping me out on
this matter! Now I can tell the Norwegian relatives of Dr. R. K. Sarheim
the good news, and hopefully they can get in touch with their American
You mention that the book "Wonder of Williams" has pictures of the Sarheim
family. I'm sure the relatives over here would like to have copies of the
page(s) they are on, but I'll leave it to them to pursue that matter.
I cannot help but point out one small matter concerning the church record
you quote from. You say that Sarheim is listed in the 'Tordfæftede (death)
records'. It should be 'Jordfæstede'.
Again, thank you very much for your help.

Hello from Seattle, WA.
I have a few of the answers to your questions. I have been researching in
Williams and Divide County for the past 12 months. And just recently
from a 4 day visit to the area. You see, my grandfather was a Norwegian
Lutheran Home Mission Pastor in the area from 1908-1922. I've been
his life and the families he served in the area.
