Classification: Query
My great grandfather is Janne Jacobson Refsland born Feb. 5,1871 Stravanger Ament,Norway died June 18,1937 in Winifred,Montana,USA. Dad's name Jacob Refsland have no name for his mom. Came to America 1888 arrived in Devils Lake,North Dakota and worked for the Great Northern Railroad building track into Montana. His boss couldn't remember his norweign name & boss told him his paycheck would be made out to him as Tom Jackson. He took the name of Tom Jackson registra for the future and citizenship. He married Hadda (Hattie) Sofia Anderson she came from Sweden.
Don't know if he had any brothers or sisters or if any family members came to America. Any information on the Refsland family would be great.
