Helen and Ole C Olsson
Posted by: Kai R Olsen (ID *****4765) Date: March 29, 2012 at 00:12:06

My great-great-grandmother Helene Olsdatter Braatevolden (born Aug 9th 1844-died oct 3rd 1931 in Rock Run Town, Stephenson, Illinois) left Norway in 1869, with the boat Helvetica to Canada. She went without her 2 children Ole Peder and Mina. They stayed in Norway with Helene`s parents. She travelled with Ole Christian Olsen Voldsater (1833-1916). They got married when they came to America. They went to Stephenson, Illinois, and settled there as farmers. They took the names: Helen and Ole C Olsson.
They got 7 children: Oluf Olsson (1872-1960), Martin Olsson (1874-?), Charly(Charlie)Olsson (1877-1934), Morris Anton Olsson (1879-1962), John Olsson (1882-1955), Gustav Adolf Olsson (1885-1937) and Ellen Olson (1870-?).
Most of the children settled down in Stephenson County. I know that Oluf got married to Caroline and got 4 children Everette (1898-1990), Melvin L(1900-1960), Ora (1903), Alice (1909)
John got married to Ora and got 2 children, Mildred E (1918), and Allen (1927-2003)
I`m now looking for relatives of these people. Anybody who can help me?
Also interested in other information/documents about these people.
