I have just begun researching family of Wickum from Crary, North Dakota. I am a direct decendant to John Wickum (Johannes Olsen-Sogndal)) (b. 1854) and married Ellen Pederson (Elen Pedersdatter-Tynset)) (b.1858)
John Wickum's parents were Johames Olsen (b. 1823 d. 1900) and Kari Oldsdatter (b. 1831 d. 1908) they lived in Vikheim Farm and died in Eggja. They had a number of children besides John/Johannes. Brithe (b. 1856), Ole (b.1858) Gunhild (b. 1861) Iver (b. 1864), Andreas (B.1868), Anna (b. 1873) and Kari (b. 1875) Any information on this family would be welcome. I also have some information on the families emigration if you are interested.
