Looking for Blegen relatives. My grandfather was Julius Blegen who lived in Montana during the early 1900s. Also would like to more about other relatives.

I don't know if this is related, but I am a Blegen. My grandfather was Orville Blegen. He was married to Hazel Peterson. They were from Minnesota.

Thank you. This is interesting. My grandfather Julius was born in Spring Grove in 1863. His father was Anders Blegen who came from Norway and settled in Spring Grove. Interested if your lines are close to these. Thank You. I guess my name goes in this box for reply.

Orville Hazel Blegen

My dad was from Arco Minnesota. Robert Louis Blegen was his name. His fathers name was Marcus Blegen. He had two brothers named Mark George. Unfortunatley death has a way of slowing down the family tree. Any info you may have or could lead me to would be apreciated.

What a surprise! I just recently assembled genealogy of my ancestors. Your grandfather Julius was the brother of my grandfather, Peter Olaus Andersen Blegen, son of Anders. He was born in Spring Grove, MN in 1860.
I have identified two other brothers, Edward, born 1855 and Cornelius, born about 1869; and one sister, Martha Maria born about 1859. I also have identified Anders brother Ole I. Blegen, his three daughters and one son. Also their first generation offspring and those of my grandfather's four sons and beyond. I obtained this information from Reel #74 of the archives of the Evangelical Lutheran church in America--which had transcribed to microfilm, the logs of the Apring Grove chyurch they all attended, now called Trinity Lutheran. From work of other Blegens who did extensive searches, I know that Anders, his brother Ole and their father Ingebrigt (later Anglicized to Ingebret all came from the Blegen gaard (loosely a farm) whose name they took)locatead at Faaberg, Gudbrandsdalen, Norway--which is near Lillehammer--about 70-80 miles north of Oslo.
So you and I both have the same great, great grandfather.
I would greatly enjoy hearing from you.

To the message by Michelle Spring, I am the great grandson of Anders Blegen and you are his great granddaughter. Your grandfather, Julius, and my grandfather were brothers, both born in Spring Grove, MN in 1863 and 1860 respectively. I also posted a longer description. Would welcome hearing from you. I have prepared a family tree of that era, which I will send--and appreciate additions.
