Hi, Apparently there were three brothers that came over in the late 1800's My Great Great Grandfather Thorval Brothen was asked by immigration to change the spelling of his name when he came to this country. He had two brothers John and Carl that came over later. They lived in Minnesota , my Grandfather Ivar Brothen is one of nine children and he had my mother and my Identical Twin Uncles Ivar and Rolf. It is my understanding that in Norway the name was Prestebraaten( not sure of the spelling) anyone with any other information I would love to share. Thanks , Kris
