Hello again, sorry for the late reply.
Have done a little investigation on my end, it turns out that his parents where Jon Olsen 1820-1855 and Gjertrud Kristine Iversdatter born 1820. Iver had three brothers. His mother remarried after Jon died in 1855 with Anders Pedersen Elvrum and they immigrated to Minnesota. Alll help is greatly appriciated.
