Hi Jodie
I think we are cousins! wow.....I have info of the Hadlands now but cant locate it....I will be working on that but it may not say much more than the info I just got from my mom she is almost 80 but she thinks her info is correct. Here is what I know and or the info my mom gave me just now.....she seemed not 100% sure her grandmother was an Anna ....but seems our same people were from Grafton? ND
here is more info and please send me post to my personal email thanks....:)

my grandmother was born in Grafton ND (Maine Gjesdal) and her mother was Anna Hadland ......she married Christopher Gjesdal.
(Maine married Ole Hagen they had my mother --divorced then Maine married Oscar Medalen! )

so Anna Hadland was my great grandmother so it looks as if our great grandmothers were sisters so we are cousins.......2nd third what ever....hi cousin! anyway

my mom had uncles ......(Maine Gjesdals brothers ) Christopher Gjesdal,Jim Gjesdal, Alfred Gjesdal and Alfred has a son in Kuna Idaho not far from here......the son was a twin but the other brother was killed in a farm tractor accident. They were born around Edmore ND ......I met Alfred when I was young.
so Ella and Sikke must be my great great would love to get some pics and more info sometime. not much time to work on all this but I am trying. I have Hadland info on the paper mom gave me if I can just find it!!
please write me at my personal email is
I will anxiously wait to hear from you........Cheryl Empson
