Brian, I don't have an answer to your question. But one of your Sigve Erland was mentioned in my great-grandfathers Obit. The article said "Sigve Erland placed a beautiful burial wreath on the casket from the children and the grandchildren." My great-grandfather was Eric Hovland. He died December 27, 192? I wondered if Sigve is related to Eric Hovland? Why else would he be the person to place a burial wreath for the children....? The article mentions two daughters of Eric Hovland. Mrs. Carl Pedersen (karen) and Mrs. Sorensen. Also is Erland the name of a parish or chapel? because another sentence says "John Fikstvedt also gave a wreath from the Erland Sunday School." I just had the Obit translated 3 days ago. This is my first day on the internet trying to find information. If I find your answer I'll let you know.
