I hope you have had time to read and digest the information that I gave you about the origins of Louis Hogan, as I see them.

I do have another piece of information that might help verify, and continue the search.

Here is what you wrote:

On Louis W. Hogan's death certificate his father is listed as Haaken Kleeve and his mother Sarah -----,

There IS a farm at Voss with the name Klevene. So I think the Kleeve name on Louis/Lars's death certificate for his father was the farm name where Haaken Svendsen came from. That, you will see in the naming practices article.

So when asked for a possible farm name for the search, give Klevene or the Kleeve name you had. It might be a BIG clue.

There is also Kløve, which might sound like Kleeve. It is possible to look there too in the Farm and family history book. The letter ø could be misheard in the USA to sound like ee.

There are some Bryngelsons that lived at Kløve farm, maybe that is where the mother of Lars came from.

I hope those clues all add up to being able to trace this family.

You could post your clues and some of my ideas on the Hordaland query page, using Voss in the subject line.
