I am looking for family of Arne Overhaug. I believe they were from Bergen or Stensli. My mother used to write to someone there. Her name was Ida Overhaug and she was married to Oscar Overhaug. You can contact me at ritak1@msn.com.

Arne died in about 1929. He came from Norway in about 1885. My father was his son Oscar Overhaug. He died in 2001.

There is no one named "Overhaug" registered in Norway (telephone books, tax lists).

There are a few people named "Øverhaug", but there is no way to tell if they are your relatives.

Do you have any more specific information?

There are people named "Øverhaug" buried in cemeteries in Os, Hamar and Tynset.

You say Arne died about 1929, but his wife is already listed as a widow in the 1920 census. The 1910 census says Arne arrived in America in 1876. Arne is already living in Waterloo, Iowa in the 1880 census, so he ws there long before 1885.

According to the 1900 census, Arne was born Sep 1857 and arrived in America in 1867. The 1915 census says Arne J. Overhaug arrived in America about 1879, so I believe the date 1876 is closer to being correct than 1867.

Your Arne J. Øverhaug was born 14 Sep 1847 in Ålen, Sør-Trøndelag. His parents were John Christiansen and Anne Arntsdatter.

Arne left Norway via Trondheim on 18 Apr 1878. His destination was Lansing, Iowa.

This could be a relative:

Here is the family in the 1875 census, although Arne is not living with his parents:
