Surnames: Gilbertson/Gulbrandson/Gubranson Ostenson Olson
Did your Gilbert and Inger Gilbertson ever use the last names Gubrandson or Ostenson? My Great-great Grandparents Gilbert/Gulbrand/Gubrand Gilbertson/Gulbrandson/Gubranson/Ostenson and Ingri Oyer/Oyan (her surname.....probably her farm name in Norway) used all those names. I know my Gilbert and Ingri had two daughters, Ostine Lohre and Anne Olson. There was a third child, but I have no info on that one. Gilbert arrived from Norway in 1856 to Coon Valley, Bad Axe Co., WI. He was a blacksmith. I think Ingri emmigrated at the same time from Norway: possibly they were already married when they came. Both daughters were born in WI. In 1869 they moved to Cottonwood Co., MN., returning to Stanley, Barron Co., WI sometime after 1892 with Anne. Anne married Edward Solvester Olson, son of Nils and Johanna. Edward was a farmer. They married, 23 May 1892, in Stanley, at a Lutheran Church with Pastor A.G. Orke of Chetak presiding. Witnesses were Ole and Anne Wistad. Gulbrand died 19 June 1903 and was buried in Faaberg Cemetary. No death info on Ingri. Gulbrand used the Gilbertson and other G surnames in early Wisconsin, and seems to have begun using Ostenson as his surname in Minnesota. Ostenson is on his death record. The name changes are enough to drive me nuts. Do any of these names mean anthything to you? Ostine was my Great grandmother and she remained in Minnesota, moving to Roseau Co. with her husband John Hanson Lohre. Thanks for any info.
