In Bygdebok for Lesja 1 on page 293 shows my ggrandfather
Mathias Johannes LEE b. 1859 in Lesja, on the Nordpa
Overlie farm. At 21 he left Norway through Bergen in 1880
with his sister Christine and they headed for MN where
they had an older brother Johan already settled in MN.
An older sister Kari settled in Romdalen 1871 and married
Martin Ingebrikts.
A brother Bernt went to Evenes 1866. Peder went to US
through Bergen in 1879. He married Marit Olsd from
Brustugu, Hoset. Johannes took over the farm in 1885. He
married Marit Eriksd from Stavemashaugen. This is all in
Oppland County on a farm near Lesja, which is NW of Dovre.
Mathias J. LEE married Gjertina Jacobson whose parents
were from Luster, Sogn og Fjordane, Norway. They married
in Yellow Medicine Co., MN and had thirteen children.

Mathias' parents were: Ronnaug Johannesdr from Systugu
Belle and Johannes Peders.from Skarphol. (Oppland Co.)
Anyone connected with these people, please connect with
me, as I am very interested in learning more about these
wonderful Norwegians.
