His naturaliztion petition filed in Roseau, MN said he was born 19 November 1876 (the date must have been transposed) in Throndhjim, Norway and emigrated from Christiansund, Norway on October 1, 1885. He doesn't remember the name of the vessel. But his age is listed as 15 on both documents. That would have made him born in 1870. This is getting very confusing.
