A Stove emigrated from Norway:1893 Mars 9 Nils Ingebrigtsen Støve born 1870 in Gloppen Parish, Sogn og Fjordane County. Differenet families from the Norwegian Stove farms emigrated in the last decades of the 1800. They where neighbours and some close relatives. Some went to Viscounsin, and others ended up in South Dakota, Miner County. Some of them you will find in my family files at http://itbase.no/kvien
. I may do lookups in Norwegian "bygdebooks". There are other families with the same family name from Denmark, Germany and England, but they are not related to the Norwegian Stoves.
