Looking for information on my gg grandparents, Albert Gravaas/Gravos and Kari Dale. 2nd married Anna Skiels. There were six children in the family: Anton, Anna, Iver, Clara, Alice and Harold. Albert and wives were from Norway. Albert married Kari Dale in Cresco IA on August 16, 1888. She died (?) and he went back to Norway and married a cousin of the first wife, Anna Skiels...or so the story went. Am not able to verify much of anything.

My grandfather Harold was born in March of 1903 in Cresco IA as were the other children. He was the fourth or fifth child so he could belong to either Kari or Anna.

Would appreciate any help I can get.
