I have some information on my gr.gr. grandfather, Isaak Nelson, sea captain in Milwaukee, WI. Isaak and his brother Nels (N.A.) went to California from Norway during the Gold Rush. They struck gold and came to Milwaukee in 1954. They owned or co-owned about five or six sailing vessels at various times. Isaak was killed in an accident as he was viewing the building of the Guido Pfister vessel in 1874. N.A. lived for many years after. If anyone wants more info or has info, I'd be pleased for the contact.
