Hi, Nels Braaten(LiaBraaten?)was my great,great grandfather also. He was born in 1832 in Flaa Hallingdal,Norway and is buried in West Norway Lake Cemetery near New London, Mn.
My great grandma was his 2nd wife, and her name was Gunhild. They had a son Ole, who changed his last name to Nelson (Nels'son)because there was the older son Ole. Kolbjorn was also from the 1st marriage. What was their Mom's name? The two brothers Ole, were known as big Ole and little Ole. GO FIGURE! Gunhild died when Great grandpa Ole was an infant, possibly childbirth. Nels then married the 3rd time to Anna. They had 9 kids, one whom was named after my grandma Gunhild.
Ole Nelson was my great grandfather. He married Joran Pladsen, and their daughter Christine(Ole)Lien, was my grandma.
Thanks so much for the info! I hope this additional info is helpful to you also. It's fun to chat with new family.
