Yes, that's my understanding from the obituary. Martine's mom is Lise Iversdatter Skjeggestadhagen. Mom (Martine's granddaughter), seems to remember talk that [Martine] was sent to LaCrosse, WI to live with Carl Skogstad and his wife. And from there was brought back to her father, John G(underson) Skjeggestad, in Flandreau, SD. Lise and John were never married as far as I can tell from church records in Norway or later in USA so it's hard to determine what the actual relationship was between them. Not much evidently. (Church records show two kids with a different mother and not married) I believe John's sister raised Martine. The sister doesn't appear to have every married. I have never been able to locate death or grave for Martine's mother, Lise Iversdatter Skjeggestadhagen or her mother, Kari Simensdtr Brettingsbakken. I know that Iver Olsen Skjæggestadhagen died at sea, but I don't really know if he was actually buried at sea (assuming yes, but what happens when they do that? just nothing? no gravestone anywhere?) And after the main breadwinner died in those days (i think he was retired already though)...what happened to his wife (Kari) and why did Lise (their daughter) die so young? And where are they buried? I can't pull up any records on either death. Possibly changed names...but...how could I find that?
