I am very interested. Berge Bergeson, Halvor's father was married to my grandfathers sister. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have some pictures but I think only one that would have Halvors mother in it. Is any of the family still living?

He married Mary Jane McGinn on 02-27-1896 in Grinnell, IA. born 05-26-1867 Searsboro, IA died 10-16-1940 Liberal MO. buried same place as Berge. (Only marriage)
their children: 3 total
Marie Carrier Bergeson born 10-11-1908 married Chester R Cox died 11-08-1997 Contra Costa, CA. was a teacher.

The above I know is correct with death records, marriage records, census records, cemetery records, and my mother knew them. Mary Jane was her Aunt.

this is my connection
Thomas McGinn + Mary
Patrick McGinn + Mary Doud
Thomas McGinn (brother to Mary Jane) + Ethel
Linda Hasley
Mable Marie McGinn + Ward James
Karen Jean Johnson (me) + David L. Johnson
I think you might have 2 different families mixed up.
