I am researching Mikkel Myhre and his wife Beate Anderson. Mikkel immigrated from Norway with his brother Lars in abt 1882. They made their way to Polk County, Minnesota where Mikkel met and married his wife Beate. Lars also met and married his wife Elise Anderson, Beate's sister. Mikkel raised his many children: Melvin, Peter, Josephine, Gustava, Bennie, Jorgen, Ole, Ella, William, Mabel, Alma and Helen in Polk County. Lars eventually moved his family to Canada. If you have any connections, I would love to compare notes.
