Have just recently found out that my g-g-grandfather was Gulbrand Larson. We had known him as Gilbert Lewis. His wife was Mari/Marie and her father was Iver Torgerson. They lived in Arendahl township or North Prairie. I believe that Gilbert/Gulbrand married again after Mari died. My g-grandmother(thier daughter) was there first born I believe. I know that there were at least two other daughters born to them and one of them married an Oscar Tessum, I don't know which one. I also don't know if these were the only children born to them. In Bertha's obit they mention a brother Henry Louis that survived her. I can't find anything on him. He was listed in her obit as living in Oroville, California. A women who can remember the family believes that Henry was a half brother so I think that Gilbert/Gulbrand remarried. If any one has information about this family, please let me know. Almost everyone is gone, except an uncle of mine who is in poor health and can't really remember much of his g-grandfather Gilbert. Will appreciate any and all information. Bertha was born in 1879 and died in 1951. I have been told her grandfather Iver Torgerson remarried after his wife Brithe died. He died in 1912 at age 81. He left an 8 year old daughter, name unknown. Would appreciate any info on this family.
thank you..Cindy Nelson
