I am trying to find out more about my ggrandfather. He settled in Galveston Texas. I am not sure if the original was Smith. He was born in February of 1845 in Bergen, Norway. Extended family has said he is of Scottish descent. I have hit a wall. I cannot find the port or ship he was on. I also cannot find anything in the records for his 1868 immigration. He married Mary J. Ingraham (Ingram) in Palestine Texas in 1876. They had several children and all were alive prior to the 1900 storm;
John T Smith
Pauline Smith - married Gaido
Henry Smith - married Lucy Prino
Wm H Smith
If you have any information that can help, I would greatly appreciate it.
