I am searching for information on the following ancestors:
Haagina Tollefdatter born Aug. 10, 1841 Hanivold, Asker Parish, Akershus and died in the Asker area, Ponoka County, Alberta Canada on Oct 5, 1926.
Her parents were Tollef Hansen ( born July 23, 1798) and Anne Marie Oldsdatter (born July 14, 1805)
Haagina had a son (my great grandfather) with Niels Olsen Brunes on Aug. 17, 1867 and he was baptized Alexander Neilsen Brunes on Aug 23, 1867 at Trefoldighed, Oslo, Askerhus. He was known to his family in North Dakota and Canada as Alexander Woyen (he was married as Alexander Woyen as well)
Haagina was married to Peter Hansen on Aug 23, 1872 Asker Parish, Akershus. Peter was born May 13, 1837, Voyen, Asker Parish. Peter and Haagina had the following children: Tollef Petersen Woyen (born 1878 at Voien Farm Akershus, Olaf, Hans Petersen Woyen Hansen (born 1876 at Voien Farm Akershus) and Olga. Olga was married to Christian Thorstad in North Dakota. Tollef, Olaf and Hans never married.
Alexander came to North Dakota, USA in the late 1880's and was married to Eleanora Hansen in Ellendale, Dickey County, North Dakota in 1892. Alex, it is said, came to North Dakota to work for Andrew Vold, also from the Akershus area.
It is believed Haagina came to North Dakota with Tollef, Olaf, Hans and Olga after her husband, Peter Hansen, died. Alex and his own family, his mother and all his half siblings came to Alberta Canada to homestead in 1896.
If anyone has any information on these families I would be very happy to hear from them.
