Searching for family of Merit (Bjorgan) LERVOLD, b. 5 Dec 1882, second child of Hans and Ingeborg Bjorgan. Merit remained in Norway when the rest of her family went to America. She married Lovaas Lervold. They lived in Storen where he worked on the railroad. Lovaas died in 1955 and Marit died in Feb 1973 just a few months after seeing her brothers and sisters during their trip to Norway in 1972.
Siblings that visited Norway in 1972 were:
Ole Bjorgan (my great grandfather)
John Krogan (changed his name to Krogan because there were so many John Bjorgan's)
Ella (Bjorgan) Vallevand
Inga (Bjorgan) Downey
