I am seeking information on Kristian Knutsen, born on July 19, 1851 at Øyer, Gudbrandsdalen. He was the son of Knud Pedersen and Maria Pedersdatter, and was one of my ancestors.
Kristian had a brother, Peder Knutson, born July 19, 1859 at Øyer who emigrated to Vernon County, Wisconsin, in 1880 and married Johanna Raabølshagen from Øyer the same year. They lived on a farm near Chaseburg, Coon Valley, WI.
Peder and Johanna Knutson went by the name Jahr. It is believed that Kristian Knutson also used this name, and may have settled in Wisconsin.
I would appreciate very much any information about Kristian Knutson (Jahr), where he lived, and his family in the U.S.
