My name is Marvin A. Helland. My father is Marvin E. Helland. I was very interested to read this post about the relations of Halvor Helland setteling in the area of Sarnia township Nelson county ND. That is were my Great Grandfather setteled also. His name was Edward E. Helland born in Norway about 1865 moved to Whitman ND Sarnia township not sure of the year. Married Tina Holan from Eco MN when he was 40. They had two boys Alvin and Morris.
Tina later died during childbirth of a third that did not survive. Morris never married. Alvin ( my grandfather) married Clara Pollack and lived in Sarnia township all there lives. They had two children Marvin ( my dad ) and Clarine Helland/Rude. We do know that Edward had reletives in Iowa and Montana but dont know any names. There was also some cousins from around Dahlan ND Known as the Helland bros. ( Oscar & Bert ) and we think sisters ( josephine and Bonnie? ) We know almost nothing about Edwards brothers or sisters any connections would be wonderful. Thankyou in advance for any info.
