I am looking for alot of names in my surname list. My Tree goes back to the late 1600s. If any name matches yours I will look it up to see if the dates and places match with mine ! Mostly I am looking for any information on the Larsen and Edseth families. They were from Eset,Nannestad Norway. Which is in the valley of Gundbransdalen Norway I belive. Kristoffer and Johanna Larsen-Edseth immigrated from Norway in 1868. I havent been able to total up their children because there is some that I dont even know belong with them or not. There are conflicting evidence about it.
But I think there are 14 so far. They settled into Halstead MN in 1868/1869 where they remained for sometime.
Anyone have any links on the children?
so far I have ..
Karoline Birgitte Edseth 1862
Hilda Edseth b 1864 d 1864 in Nannestad Norway
Lars Edseth b August 1865 d 5-31-1948 in Ada,MN -Halstead Luthern Church
Clara Edseth b December 1873 Confirmed at the Halstead Luthern Church in 1898
Carl Edseth b December 1874
Ellen edseth B Febuary 1876 confirmed 1901

Surnames: Edseth, Eset
Edseth is in Nannestad, but quite a distance from Gudbrandsdalen. Nannestad is in Akershus fylke, so you might place your query there.

My great great grandmother was Karen Edseth. I don't see her name on your list. She lived in LaqQui Parle County Minnesota and is burried in Dawson Minnesota. She married Olaf Gruenenwald. If you have any information on her I'd greatly appreciate it.

According to Nannestad bygdebok Vol II, page 209, Kristoffer Larsen, b 1832 from Østre Eset, Nannestad , m. Johanne Hermansdatter Hellerudeiet, Hakadal (to the west of Nannestad) and born in 1841 in Gjerdrum to the south of Nannestad.
Only Karoline Birgitte, 1862 , Hilda b & d 1864 and Lars 1865 are mentioned here. Moved from Esetstua to an othe cottage, Esethagen (under Vestre Eset) in 1861 and the left for America in 1867.
I don't find them in the 1865 census.

Eseth is located south west of Oslo Airport Gardermoen, which is situated in Nannestad and Ullensaker 50 km north of Oslo.

Could your grandmother be Karoline Birgitte b in Norway in 1862 ? Did they call her Karen for short ?
