Did you see the reply from Michael? That is the same family. Ole (1844-1919) & his wife Carrie (1855-1936) (Karen) moved to Havre, Montana. I also have a copy of the church register where they were married. I want to find out what happened to his parents John Estensen Hodalen & Gjertrud Ingebritsdatter Bakos. I would like to know when & where they died, and if they are in the 1860, 70 or 1880 census. I can't find newspapers that go back that far for the Strum and surrounding areas. I figure a newspaper might be my best bet to find out more about them.
