I have lost paperwork track of an ancestor for some years...last showing up in 1875 census in Strinda and then in USA. He went from Ishpeming Michigan to Lakota North Dakota to marry a woman from Evje so I am thinking he was employed by the mining industry...ie the mines at Flaat where he met his future wife.
Ingebrigt Olsen Polle born 07/26/1860 Strinda name change to Engebret Foss in USA
married Siri Bertosen Nordbo 1892(records destroyed by natural disasters)..
Ingebrigt immigrated 1887...can find no records of departure
Siri immigrated 1888 to Grand Forks/Lakota North Dakota...can find no records of her either.
Can find no records of arrival here in US either....
I have put all sorts of name variations into DigitalArkives and nothing comes up....
father: Ole Andreas Ingebrigtsen Polle...Strinda...1836(Ingebrigt)
father Berto Aanonsen Nordbo Evje 1826 Siri)
