Surnames: BRAGER, LIEN
I am researching the Syver [Sever or Siver] Arneson Brager family who lived in, I believe to be, Sylvester twp., Green Co., Wisconsin sometime between 1857 and 1870. This family then relocated to Madison County, Nebraska. Syver immigrated along with his wife to the USA from Norway in abt 1857. In Feb 1865, Syver enlisted in Co. 'A' of the 46th Wisconsin Infantry and served short of a year in the Civil War. His enlistment county was Green County, Wisconsin. I would like to know more about this family especially, 1860 and 1870 Green County census data on this family. Any information would be most appreciated.
