Interested to know if your family matches with mine. I have a Thor Erickson that came from Norway to the US thru Canada in 1866. Along with Thor came his son and daughter Eric and Mary. They settled in Clinton, Iowa and then around the Quarry/LeGrand, Iowa area. Thor's first wife had died in Norway. Her last name was Johnson. His second wife (maybe her sister) came to the US later on and married Thor. Her name was Raine Johnson. Together they had a daughter Nellie Erickson who is my great grandmother. I believe Thor's birth date was 6-19-1823 and death date was 4-16-1909.
