My grandfather from Norway came to the USA about 1868 with some of his siblings, Marthe Nilsdatter, Edward Nilson, and Gulbrand (Gilbert) Nilsson. Remaining in Norway were Andrea,Karen and Peder. My grandfather, Ole Nilson Oppen had 7 children. My father (John Edwin) had 6 siblings but I have not been able to locate decendents of 3 of his sisters. The sisters are Pauline Amelia (Emelia) born 9-6-1876 and died 4-1-1928.Another sister was born as Kinia Olivia in 9-14-1878 and died in Tacoma, Wa. about 10-20-1934. She had one daughter named Bernice and was married to a John Bjorklund. When she married she was called Katherine.The 3rd sister was Idella Emilia born in 1887 and died 5-3-1932. These dates may not be exact. The family was raised in Murray County in Minnesota. Any information would be extremely appreciated.I am also missing any information on 2 of my grandfathers siblings- Marthe(who may have gone to Canada and Gilbert. Thanks, I would be grateful.

Dear Ruth,
I have two pictures of Gravley children. I believe that your mother Mabel Amanda Gravley Oppen is pictured and also her older sister, Hannah. I can be reached at: laurieaaronhird@yahoo.com I'd love to hear from you.
