Date of marriage: 11 Feb 1866
Place of marriage: Deerfield, Dane, Wisconsin

Hi

I think this must be Peder Mikkelsen Spilde born June 4, 1846 (censuses etc are often one year off)
He was baptized June 14, 1846 in Ulvik, Hordaland.
Parents bachelor Mikkel Pedersen and Ragna Johansdatter Spilde.

Nice find, Vivi! That is definately him. Apparently, he changed "Mikkelsen" to Myers/Meyers. That is the strangest name change I have ever seen....

Hi

Could not have found him without you finding his name when he married!

I think this is Ragna and Peder leaving Norway June 15, 1850 from Bergen:
No 30 and 31:
http://norwayheritage.com/p_list.asp?jo=1896&ps=11869
In the original there is no "surname" for Peder:
http://norwayheritage.com/p_scan.asp?jo=1896

I think this is them because several others are found on this list who are also found leaving the parish Ulvik.
Ex no 32 Lars with his wife Sigrid and their 3 children, also no 39 Agathe with her son Niels.

I don't find Ragna and Peder "signed out" from the parish Ulvik, right page;
