Gu­mundur Sigur­sson, b. 1836 was the son of Sigur­ur Benediktsson (1796-1859) and Steinunn Oddsdˇttir (1807-1869)
Sigur­ur lost his first wife (Sˇlveig ┴rnadˇttir) in 1835, and married his second wife (Gu­nř Jˇnsdˇttir in 1836) - Gu­mundur was born in between, so to speak. Steinunn Oddsdˇttir had 7 children with 4 men, but never married

SigrÝ­ur Jˇnsdˇttir, b. 1850 was the daughter of Jˇn Ůorvaldsson and Una Gissurardˇttir, who lived at various places in Skagafj÷r­ur, mostly in Reynista­ir-parish.

My records actually say SigrÝ­ur died in 1882, but that may be a case of mistaken identity - please let me know if you have any information about her emigrating.

And yes, once the Gardar book is out, I need to know where to buy it - please keep me informed.
