My Family is from Norway and came to this country in 1871 according to information on the 1900 census. My father Gilbert Ryerson is the son of Robert Ryerson and Grandson of Reyer Reyerson.
I found Robert Ryerson (born 1852) in the 1880 census living in Chicago; listed as a Norwegian Sailor and Brother in Law of Harry Espland also a Norwegian Sailor. I found Riar Riarson listed in Barnes County North Dakota in the 1880 Census with Wife Rachael (both born in Norway in 1827) and a son Cornelius (born in Norway in 1856).
I do not know if either on the 1880 census records are my kin. Only that they are the right age and have familiar names (Rachael Riarson and Gilbert Espland son of Harry).
Riar is also in the right place; Barnes County North Dakota (Valley City).
My Line:
Reyer Reyerson born in Norway Oct 1827 (Census search spells his name Reyes Reyerson but the original is really Reyer)
Robert Ryerson born in Norway June 1852
Married ? Children: Aleck Ryerson born in North Dakota May 1890
Sara Ryerson born in North Dakota April 1892
Ellen Ryerson born in North Dakota December 1893
Sena Ryerson born in North Dakota June 1896
Ruby Ryerson born in Illinois Feb 1900
Married Christina (Swenson 1899) the 1900 census data lists Christina as having been married one year in June of 1900 and the mother on one child. Probably Ruby.
From the 1920 census: Roy Ryerson born in North Dakota 1902
Carl Ryerson born in North Dakota 1903
Lena Ryerson born in North Dakota 1905
Louise Ryerson born in North Dakota 1906
Amelia Ryerson born in North Dakota 1908
Gilbert Ryerson born in North Dakota 1909
Rachel Ryerson born in North Dakota 1912
Ernest Ryerson born in North Dakota 1914
Christine Ryerson born in North Dakota 1916
Robert Ryerson born in North Dakota 1918
Robert Sr died in the early 1920s and Christine remarried Otto Kuester somewhat later. She died in 1936.
Gilbert Died in 1979 in Gordon Mebraska.
Can anyone help me find more.
