Hello, I am looking for information on the following Norwegian family. Both were born in Wisconsin, their parents immigrated from Norway. Family stories include things like Martins father being a shoemaker and that His wife may have lost a child on the boat in route from Norway.
*** update family says that the mother who came over on the boat died in childbirth, however the child lived.****
Parents are Anna Marie ( unclear on her real name but her grave lists, A. Marie) Mickaelson and Martin. They had six daughters and one son ( my grandfather) Selmer. I'm having significant problems finding and confirming Martins parents and Marie's... Therefore my Norway line is stunted. Working on it for my Dads present this year- all help is appreciated.
MICKAELSON, A. Marie 1877 dod: 1960
MICKAELSON, Martin J. 13 Oct. 1861 dod: 16 June 1930
Mickelson, Clara 1898
Mickelson, Selmer 13 Sept. 1905 9 Nov
MICKAELSON, Mabel 1907 1985
MICKAELSON, Myrtle A. 1908 1972
MICKAELSON, Selma T. 1909 1983
******Update**** I have confirmed that Marie Anna ( A.Marie) dob 1877 mothers maiden name was Smeadakken (Sp) and that Marie's mother married a Halstensen.
Happy Hunting All! ;)
