Norwegian Family - Karl Martin Petterson Muus Born 1884

Posted: 30 Oct 2012 7:42PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Muus, Peterson
Hello, my name is Marlys E. McFerran, memcferran@aol.com, and I am looking for help with my family tree.

I am looking for family history on my grandfather Karl Martin Petterson Muus born in 1884 in Norway. I believe his father to be, Peter Muus. He was my grandfather, but died while I was young. I was always told he was related to Bernt Julius Muus, founder of St. Olaf College, but not sure of the connection. Bernt may have been an uncle or a cousin, just not sure.

I have attached a file showing a primer with names on it. Below are all the details I have.

Norwegian Genealogy Data Collection/Query Form

-Person you are researching
Karl Martin Petterson Muus, in US known as Carl Martin Peterson 

-Birthdate and birthplace
Born in 1884 in Norway, Died in Minneapolis, Minnesota in June 1956.

-Person's parents (include names, dates, and places)
From Carl's death certificate it lists his father as Peter Muus and Mothers name as Marie with no last name listed.

-Person's spouse(s) (name, dates, and places)
  Louise M. Brekke Peterson
 
-Children (names, dates and places)
 Palmer Peterson, born in US, probably Minnesota
 Mildred Corrine Peterson, born in US, probably Minnesota
 Lorraine Constance Peterson, born in US, probably Minnesota

-Specific location(s) where person lived
He lived both in Minnesota and Wisconsin, but at the time of death he lived on 22nd Ave South in Minneapolis, MN . USA 

 
-The resources I have already searched (be specific)
I have tried many online sites, and also the Ellis Island Immigration site. The only record close shows a Karl Peterson who arrived in New York in 1905 at age 18 from Norway. This doesn't give middle name or old city of residence so can't be sure.

-What I would like to find out
I am trying to find his lineage for family records. We had a family book from Norway showing the family history back to the 1600's I believe, but it listed Carl's children's names wrong, and was lost when my mother Mildred, his daughter died. I have what looks like a small Norwegian Bible Primer that shows the following names:
Karl Martin Petterson Muus 1898
Peter Marius Muus 1902 
  

Thank you for reading my post, and any assistance if you can provide it.
