My best guess is that both Jyri and Torgan came from somewhere in Telemark. Torgan was born in January 1832 if that helps at all. Torgan was only 8 when she came to America. She lived in Capron, Illinois when she got married and started her family. She may have been known as Torgena. My great grandmother's birth name was Torgena. Later shortened to Gina, but went by the name Mimi because she hated Gina (hard G).
