My greatgrandfather was the only one of his siblings who did not immigrant to the US. He took over the family farm.

I have been trying to find decendents of his brothers and sisters but to no avail. Our family has a lot of letters that were sent from the US from the end of the 1880s until the 1930s when the last Norwegian writter died.
