I am looking for two of the descent of Halvor Eliasson Sydness and Malene Olsdatter Kike of the Fjeldberg parish, Hordaland, in Norway.Halvor was b. 1797 at Sydness, Malene was born 1799 at, I believe, Kike, both in Fjeldberg.Children were Ole (1822),Ingeborg (1824), Elias (uncertain),Elling (1829), Martha (uncertain), Anna (1838), Malene (1840), Mary Elizabeth (1844), Anders (uncertain), and maybe Juergen (unknown). Ole, Elling, Anna, Malene, Mary Elizabeth, Martha, and Anders came to the U.S. in about 1857, to Wisconsin not far from Madison.Then, in about 1868, Ole, Elling, Anna, Malene, and Mary Elizabeth, moved to central Iowa.Martha and husband, Lars Tesdahl I suspect, may have been there already.Anders went, I believe, to Illinois.I believe that Martha and family went to South Dakota.Elias, and Ingeborg stayed in Norway and I assume that Juergen did also, if he existed. Elling was my ggrandfather.
I have lost the trail of Anders, in Wisconsin and, probably, in Illinois. I am sure that he had a daughter Malena (or Malinda). I have also lost the trail of Martha, in Iowa and in South Dakota, or wherever they went.I would like to pick up those lost trails. Could I hear from anyone from their descent?
