Hi, I'm looking for information regarding John T. Lenes who lived in the Thirteen Towns area of Polk County.
He, his wife Gjertrude and son Tollef, emigrated from Tonseth, Norway in 1872 and came to the Polk County area after a short stay at Sauk Centre.
They had several more children after arriving in America by the names Joe and Carl and I believe they also had a daughter by the name of Anna.
Both John and Gjertrude died in the late 1920's or early '30's.
I believe several of the children including Carl and Joe lived in the Fosston area.
My ggrandfather Carl, married Alma Larson and moved to Alberta Canada in the '30's.
Any information on this family would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks very much.
