I am searching for my grandparents
Martha BERENTSEN b: 17 Feb 1883/5
Thomas Martin JOHNSON
I know very little and what I know is conflicting. Thomas was said to have
originally come from Norway just below Bergan. Thomas lived in NYC and
worked on the ships, he was Martha's second husband. Together they had one
son, Jan Edward, born Brooklyn 27 Nov 1925. I am not sure how long they
stayed together but my dad never remembered living with Thomas. Thomas
lived in Brooklyn and Martha and the children lived on Long Island.
Martha was said to have been born Sweden 17 Feb 1883/5. She said her
parents were Louis and Elisa. We believe Martha had a younger sister Ruth
who came from the Winconsin or Chicago area. Martha had another son, Norman from her
first marriage to Alfred Stensland.
Should anyone have any information on this line please contact me.
Thanks so much for you attention and help.
