Kristian Kristiansen, Sioux Falls
Posted by: ěrjan Kval°y (ID *****4696) Date: May 03, 2006 at 16:32:16

Searching for my long lost great-grandfather, Kristian Kristiansen, born on August 24th, 1893, in Kolvereid, Norway. He left Norway in 1923, and arrived at Ellis Island on June 5, the same year. (He had a son in 1921, my grandfather) The records show that he was headed for Sioux Falls, and a friend, Petter Olaf Pedersen. This friend had the address: 726 N. Minn. Ave. Sioux Falls. (Petter Olaf actually was his cousin, who emigrated around 1891, with parents and 2 sisters)

Kristian lived in the area for some years, and he married a woman named Anna. Early pictures also shows that he had a friend Albert, and that he stayed at a farm some 65 miles outside Sioux Falls. Later he married a woman named Dora, and nobody heard from him again. He probably died in the 1970's.

If it is any help, he had 2 uncles who also emigrated some years earlier, that was Otto and Ole Anton Larsen.

Any help and information is very welcome!
