Hello, I am looking for descendants of Iver Johansen, born 1818 Gran, Oppland County, Norway and his wife Gubior Torgersdatter,born 1815, Gran Oppland County Norway.
This couple had a daughter named Goro who died in 1843 in Norway at the age of 4 1/2. They then had a daughter named Kari who emmigrated with them in April 1848. kari was 3 years old. I find this family in the 1850 Norway Township, Racine WI census. In 1849 or 1850 they had a son named Johan or John.
In 1860 This family is found in the Springfield Township, Winnishiek County Iowa census.
Now Iver has become Ever and is 47,
Guber is 48 and called Engebor
Caroline is 13
John is 10
Gulyf a son born in Iowa is 7
Augusta a daughter is 4 born in Iowa
Alexander a son is 2 1/2 born in Iowa.
These are my husband's Great Grandmother's family. would like to find descendants and finish up American genealogy.
Caroline is supposed to have married in Iowa in 1863. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
