I am looking for information on my ancestors who were from Norway and settled in Vernon and Monroe Counties of Wisconsin. Since I was a child when my parents died, I have almost no information. What I have I will relate.
Ole Syverson (d.1879) immigrated to Vernon and Monroe Counties from Norway. He had 7 children, one of which was Peter (b.1840, Norway), who immigrated with his wife Bertha Neprud (Norway). They had 5 children; Albert Oliver (b.1866 or 1867 in Sparta, Monroe CO.,WI), August, Ella, Lute and Marcus. Albert married Alyce(Alice)Dowden (b.1869, Elroy, Vernon Co., WI) in Sparta, WI in 1886. Any or all information that you could supply me would be greatly appreciated. Thank You, Julia Syverson
