Re: Aalberg/Aalborg family Turner County Late 1800's/ Early 1900's

Hi, Iím back, looked again, and still donít find the Aalborgs immigrating and didnít find them in Wisconsin. Son Charles (American name) was born in 1861 in Denmark, Aaron in 1871 in Wisconsin, and Joseph in 1875 in Dakota Territory. Thus Christian Jensen Aalborg, wife Sophia, and children may have been in Wisconsin rather briefly.

Still I am puzzled not to find them in the 1870 census. I searched for surnames Aalborg, Jensen, and Holgersen, with varied spellings. Perhaps they immigrated after the 1870 census was taken. The 1900 census says they immigrated 1865, but it wouldnít be the first time that an immigration date was given that was rather wide of the mark. Sometimes the person answering the census question is not the person who immigrated, and the year of immigration is kind of a guess. So thatís one theory.

Adventist Archives online has information that appears to relate to this family. (I couldnít open the online files I found.) Nathan Aalborg appears to have been a minister with the Seventh Day Adventist Church.

Here are some census records to help any other volunteers who might take a stab at finding more information.
