Ole Kristiansen from Nes

Ole Kristiansen from Nes

Posted: 30 Oct 2013 2:57PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Kristiansen (C?), Olsen
Am looking for info/descendants of Ole Kristiansen, born 7 Oct.1829 in Nes. His wife was Maren
Hansdatter. Children were Arnt (1858), Hakon, (1861) Kristiane (my gg), Olaf ( twins , 1865), Emil, 1868, Karl 1869, Josefine 1873.

Kristiane came to US in about 1880, and resided in NYC area. I believe her twin Emil, may have emigrated to California.

Would very much like to know if there are living relatives, either here in US, or in Norway.
Thanks

They are from Næs or Nes in Akershus fylke (county).
You wrote that Kristiane (Christiane's) twin, Emil, may have emigrated to California, but her twin is named Olaf, right? That is what the census seems to indicate.
Was it Emil in California?

Because I did find an Emil Olsen who died in California, with THE SAME birthdate as your Emil Olsen, January 2, 1868, and the father's last name given as Christensen.
Very likely.

OLSEN EMIL 01/02/1868 CHRISTENSEN M REST (OTHER) LOS ANGELES(19) 09/23/1953 85 yrs

Emil Olsen died in Los Angeles County, California at age 85, Sept. 23, 1953.


I went to familysearch.org/search and did a parent search, where you just type in the names of the parents, and no children's names. I also typed in Nes, Akershus for the place.
Found these children's births.

It is possible that not all of these children survived until adulthood. But it is helpful to have their birthdates, especially to find them on later census records in Norway, and in the USA.

There is an Emil Olsen/Olson on the 1930 and 1940 censuses, a widower, who was born in 1868 in Norway. Living in Los Angeles county. Two sons I think, one born in Norway, one in New York.

Here is Emil Olsen, the brother of your Kristiane, on the 1900 census living in Oslo. I base this on the information posted by one of Emil's descendants.
http://www.rhd.uit.no/folketellinger/ftliste_e.aspx?ft=1900&...

Census year: 1900

Municipality number: 0301

His wife Jenny is from Drammen.

Here is what the other relative posted on them:

Emil Olsen-b. 1868-Oslo, Nor
Posted by: Joseph Ongie Date: February 27, 2000 at 11:46:59
of 954

This is my wife's family and we would like to be able to track her grandfather, Emil Olsen b. 1868 m. Jennie Flucsrud b. 1873. Married in Norway then to US (NY) early 1900s. He died in Los Angeles, CA 1953; she died NYC, NY in 1917. There 4 sons (including my wife's father, Raider Bjorn Olsen) came to California.

Emil may have left for America first, since the emigration registers from the port of Oslo (Kristiania) show that the mother Jenny and the sons were living in Drammen (her hometown) just before THEY left for America.

Leaving Oslo, May 21, 1903, having lived at Drammen, going to New York.

Their destination is New York, so they may be on the Ellis Island records.

I think this is Emil Olsen leaving Oslo the fall before.

Here is Jenny Olsen, on the records at Ellis Island, going ot her husband Emil Olsen, it gives an address for him too. Can't read it well, but maybe you can.She's on line 15. Hope the link works.

Thanks, Taryn

You are correct, Olaf was the twin, but it was Emil who I think emigrated to the US.
I have some letters from my cousin in Asker, who is a descendant of Kristiane's
husband"s sister. One of these letters mentions Krisitiane visiting Emil in NYC.
That's the only indication I have have of his whereabouts. I would like to know if I have
any living relatives from this side of the family.
Many thanks for your help, will follow through on the info you found.

You do have relatives in California. Email me, and I will pass along the email address to one of them.
