Surnames: Johnson, Jenssen, Pedersdatter, Petersen, Thyholt
Looking for any information on John Jenssen, his wife, Mary Petersen and family. Mary Petersen immigrated in June 1869 to Quebec as a maid named Marit Pedersdatter with the Jens Johansen SKARDALSVOLD family. Have no idea when and where she immigrated through but ended up in Todd County & Osakis where she married John Jenssen ( unknown how he changed his name - his children were all known as Johnson as noted by my grandfather Jens Johnson )

Marit had worked with that Skardalsvolds family for awhile before 1869, she appears there on the 1865 Norwegian census.
They left Norway in April of 1869 from the port of Trondheim heading for Quebec on a ship called the "Franklin".
