Surnames: Johansen Johnson Hojem
Looking for Johannes Johansen b. April 27, 1853 in Asen (Aasen) Frosten, Nord Trondelag Norway. Immigrated to USA in 1872. A brother, Iver Martin, (aka Martin) Johansen came same year. Johannes had 2 nephews immmigrate in 1903. They were going to their uncle's in Reynolds/Holmes North Dakota. We have their immigrant ship list from Throndheim.

We have searched many web sites from North Dakota and other states since 1999 but have come up empty.

Johannes may have changed his name to Johan or John Johnson with various name spellings.

His brother, Martin Johansen Johnson Hojem settled here, in WI. Martin's wife was Anna Jorgine (Aspaas Gundersdtr.) Johansen Johnson Hojem.

Johannes was still here in WI. in 1879, after that we lost him. Our Brick wall!

Johannes came over in 1872. We found info about him in Norway. We also have his name and what ship he was on from the "Immigrants from Throndheim" at the Digital Arkivet in Norway.

The 2 nephews names are, Johan Mariuss. Hojem and Konrad Julius Mariuss. Hojem. They came together in 1903. Their destination is Reynolds, No. Dak.

Thank you!

He was in Ward county, ND, for his WWI draft registration.

He appears to be living in Everett, Snohomish county, Washington at the time of his WWII draft registration, using the name "John Edward Hojem".

Census records confirm that "Johannes Hojem", who was in Ward county, ND, in the 1910 and 1920 census, is the same person as "John Edward Hojem", who was in Everett, Snohomish county, WA, in 1930 and 1940.

Unfortunately, we have most of this information. We have been in contact with some of the nephew's family. Sorry, I guess I should have posted that we had this info. We still cannot find a lead to Johannes b. 1853. We have purchased the Bygdebok for Asen, all 5 volumes.
Thank you.
