My search continues - Nygaard (Nygard) Heritage.

My GreatGrandfather, Jorgen A. Nygaard (Nygard), born 1859, Loiten Hedemarken, Norway to Amund Jorgenson & Lizabet (Johnsdatter) Nystuen. He came to the US in 1881, a pioneer homestead in Tiber Township, Walsh County, North Dakota. He married Maria Kajsa Olson, daughter of Olof Peter Olson, in 1885. They had (3) sons & (6) daughters. The oldest son, Alfred Jorgen, born in 1886,is my Grandfather.

Any information you have, and would like to share, is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
