Does anyone have information on who the Bergen towns are named after? Bergen in Allamakee county, Iowa; in Fillmore, McLeod and Jackson counties, Minnesota; in Yankton and Codington counties, South Dakota; in Vernon and Rock counties, Wisconsin.
I am interested in US place names that are named after place names in Norway, or after Norwegian people. Bergen could be in this category, Bergen is the second largest city in Norway.
