Andrine and Pernille Absalonsdatter Svarstad from Innvik, Sogn og Fjordane - what happend to them?

Surnames: Svarstad (Svarvestad)
The two sisters came to Wisconsin with their parents and brothers in 1870. I can find the sisters in the 1880 census, living separatly:

Andrine Svarstad, 12. Living in Rising Sun, Crawford, Wisconsin.

Pernille Svarstad, 20. Living in Sterling, Vernon, Wisconsin.

Their brother Anders supposedly married Mari Davidsdatter Hjelle, but I can't find him.

Any suggestions?

I'm a distant relative.

Have you tried searchingt using his middle name:

Anders Martinus Absalonsen, born 28 Aug 1865

Many Norwegians named "Anders" used "Andrew" in America.

It seems odd that 12 year old Andrine was not with her parents in 1880. Do you know if her parents were dead by then?

OK, I see online that Absalon died in 1870 and his wife in 1872.

I see the family left the parish on 5 May 1870.

Hi,
yes I know when they left Norway. Where do you see their deaths? Searching in the US is new to me.

I did find a possible match for their brother using "Martin Svarstad", but it's the girls I'm interested in. Still he might know something, or rather his descendants might.

Hi,

There are several online trees at ancestry. They show that Absalon died in Crawford county, Wisconsin in Sept. 1870,
and that died there in 1872.

Do you have access to the trees at ancestry?

According to the online tree, Pernille married Abraham Corneliusen Eide in Crawford county, Wisconsin, on 17 Mar 1881.

They had 15 children. Pernille died 13 May 1928 in Miner county, South Dakota. All 15 children were born in South Dakota.

In America Pernille apparently used the last name "Williams". If you go to this free site, you can see the births of their children:

Just enter the last name "Eide". Then look at the ones born in Miner county.
