Re: Løvika, Vatne, Hukset Skei at Askvoll, Naustdal, NOR
It's interesting that from findings below Johannes Andreas Andreassen Førde had only one child - an adopted son - yet you are interested in Johannes's paternal ancestry. Maybe there's another child for Johannes not shown here? Or the note about adoption (in 1910 census) is incorrect?
Anyway, my last post showed Johannes Andreas Andreassen born 29 June 1863 (church book of Førde, Sogn og Fjordane). These facts lead us to the Find-a-Grave memorial below, for John A. Forde born 29 June 1863 in Norway. FAG says he died 16 Oct 1943, buried Lime Creek Lutheran Cemetery, Lake Mills, Winnebago, Iowa. Also buried here is wife Synneve Forde: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Forde&GSfn=John&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSst=14&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GRid=120257632&df=all&http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Forde&GSfn=John&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSst=14&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GRid=120257632&df=all& 1900 US Census Silver Lake Township, Worth county, Iowa John A Forde born June 1863 Norway to USA 1884 Day laborer Synove Forde wife born Nov 1850 Norway to USA 1884 1910 Silver Lake Township, Worth, Iowa John A Forde age 46 b about 1864 Norway, to USA 1884, farmer Synova Forde age 59 Selmer Forde age 2, Adopted Son 1930 Silver Lake Township, Worth, Iowa John A Forde age 66 b Norway about 1864 Norway to USA 1884 Selmer Forde age 22 born Iowa 1940 Hartland, Worth, Iowa Selmer J Forde 32 Rose Forde 26 Dois E Forde 9 Beverly J Forde 7 Stanley R Forde 4 Jerry O Forde 2 Sherley A Forde 10 John A Forde 76<------------- Myrtle Johnson 22 If you confirm this then the forum will have a solid identification of a specific known individual from whom you are working back in time, and you can help us understand better what is your goal.
