I am trying to find decendants of my great-grandfathers uncle who left Norway June 12'th 1879, and went to Minnesota.
This is the family:
Andreas Olsen Busterud, born 1839 in Norderhov, Buskerud
He was a housepainter.
His wife Agnete Hansen, born about 1830 in Søndre Land, Oppland.
The children Lovisa Bergine - born 1862, Johan Albert - born abt.1865, Emil David - born abt.1868 and Arne Olaf - born May 9'th 1870.
In the 1880 census the family is living in Minneapolis, Hennepin. Lovise is then a sewing girl and Johan a machinist apprentice.
I found out that Emil died in Hennepin June 11th 1931 and Arne died in Polk Nov. 23d 1940.
If anyone would like to help me find out more about this family, I would be happy to give help back to those who are searching for ancestors in Norway.
