Thanks very much for your previous help on Hans Winness and the Vigness clan. I'm trying to push back the timeline on Hans Winness. I did find some things on the census lists and elsewhere in North Dakota. Here's what I know, more or less.
Hans G. Winness came to America in 1884. No information on early history or family in Norway. Within a few years he married Carrie _________ (unknown) who was born in Wisconsin of Norwegian parents. He shows up in March 1889 or before in Golden Lake Township, Steele County, North Dakota, and has a bunch of children over the years. It isn't clear if he was ever naturalized.
Any further help you could provide would be wonderful. Thanks much, Charlie Lewis.
