My name is Marius Hellerud, I’m from Norway but live in Gothenburg, Sweden. I’m searching for information about my great-grandfather’s cousin and his family.
Crist Mork (Christian Mørch) (b. May 8th 1883 in Lerfaldsgade 5, Paulus parish, Oslo, Norway, died after 1944). Son of Marthin Christensen Mørch (1850-1927) and Johanne Marie Thoresen (1856-1925).
Married about 1907, probably in Norway, to Hilda Edvardsen (b. August 27th 1883, d. April 1969 in Wisconsin, U.S.A.). Hilda was from Røyken in Buskerud, Norway.
Christian emigrated from Oslo to Wisconsin with “Kong Bjørn” in May 1904. He was then working as a gas worker. The ticket was prepaid. In September 1907 Christian and his wife Hilda, he with address in America and she in Røyken, emigrates from Oslo to Wisconsin. Also this time the tickets were prepaid. Christian was no working on the railroad.
Hilda is in the Social Security Death Index entered with two places of residence, Madison and Maple Bluff, both in Dane County, Wisconsin.
The couple had three children: 1. Otto Mork (I’ve pictures from when he was in the army 1944 and another from 1945. Maybe he Otto Mork (f. December 4th 1910, d. January 23rd 1988 who is entered with the addresses Madison and Maple Bluff, Dane, Wisconsin in the SSDI?). 2. Thora Mork. She was married and had in the late 1940's three daughters. I've pictures of them. 3. Eddie Mork. The youngest son. I've a picture from when he studied.
I would appreciate very much any help to find my Mork-relatives!
