Ms. Elliot

Read your last message and finally had a chance to review my Barsness Information. My GGG Grandfather, and Grandmother (Hermund & Christi Barsness) are buried in Immanuel Lutheran Cemetary in Starbuck,MN.
They moved there in the 1880's to live with their daughter (Otteson). Also near some relatives specifically Ole, Nels, and Erick Barsness(Brothers). I am not sure of their relationship. These 3 brothers at one time lived in Vermont Township, Dane County, WI where my side of the Barsness family still lives. It was Erick N. Barsness that I refererred to that had some Civil War Expieriences mentioned in the 15th Wisconsin Infantry Homepage. My inforamtion states that a lot of Dane County Norweigians went to MN after the Civil War to take advantage of the 1862 Homestead Act. My GG Grandfather was John Hermundsen Barsness who was also in the Civil War, and after stayed in Dane County WI. He did however take Horses to MN to sell and returned home by train. Just a little more info you may or may not find useful. I still love lefse but will not touch lutefisk.
