Torkild Bogsrud Family, Akershus, 1875 Census

Torkild Bogsrud Family, Akershus, 1875 Census

I am curious about this family, especially the "visitor", Erik Rishof. Torkild Bogsrud is the "Gaardbruger", and two persons are listed as "Tilreisende Husfaderens Broder". I am not sure whether that means visitor of the husfad's brother or visitor AND brother. All three persons were born Krodsherred, but I have not been able to locate them in the 1865 census. Bogsrud is a rare name in US census searches, so haven't found clued in US.

Another question while I'm at it - is the Rishof name the same family that used Wiskop/Viskop in US?

Also, did this place (Asker) at some time belong to Buskerud? Any help will be appreciated.

Torkil's family in the 1875 Norwegian census - Asker, Akershus -

Torkil took the name/address Bogsrud from a farm in Eidsvoll - the parish birthplace of his wife, Henrikke. He was working on that farm in Eidsvold at the time of the 1865 Norwegian census -
His father's name was a variation on Thron, Thrond or Trond.

It is interesting that Torkil's brother Erik should be back to 'visit'? for the 1875 Norwegian census. Erik and two younger siblings, Tron and Gunhild, had sailed for America (destination - St. Paul, Minnesota) in April of 1869 from the port of Oslo. Tron became a naturalized US citizen and was still residing in Minnesota at the time of the 1920 US census (71 yrs old then). He used the name of the old family farm in Krosherad/Sigdal as his surname - Rishof.

This is indeed very interesting! Erik went back to the US, he is buried in Otter Tail, MN: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=ri...;

I am currently trying to map Rishovd ancestors in the US.
