Karl Julius EVENSEN was born in 1851 in Oslo, Norway, and married Severine Marie JENSEN abt. 1879. Karl was a ship captain and lived between Oslo and Sandefjord, Norway. They had 8 children, most of whom immigrated to the United States. Karl's parents were not married and the family has not been forthcoming with the names of the parents. Names given for his mother are Anna Margit, Maren Johansen. His father's name has been listed as Even Hansen, Proits or Preuss from Germany. I'm trying to learn the identity of Karl's parents.
