My g g grandfatheer was Gilbert/Gulbrand Arnesen who married Birthe Marie Svensdtr. They were married 23 March 1837 in Nes, Akershus, Norway.He was born 29 Dec 1818. I think they had 8 children, but I only have information on 5 of them, Mary Gilbertson/ Gulbrandsen born 1846 ( my g grandmother), Halvor Gilbertson born Feb 1850 in Norway; Andrea Gulbrandsen born 7 Nov 1853 in Norway, Karen Marie Gulbrandsen born 29 Oct 1843 & Lisabet Gulbrandsen born 27 Aug 1837. They immigrated on different dates. Mary came to Wisc. in 1868. Halvor in 1872, Andrea in either 1869 or 1872. I can find no other info on Karen Marie or Lisabet. If any of these names is familiar I'd certainly enjoy hearing from you.
