Looking for information on my great grandmother know to me only as Anne T. Gravos.I inherited the Gravos/Gravaas family bible and it lists only her married name.Anne T. married Albert Gravos/Gravaas c. 1893.They had six children.Anna Marie, Anton Thomas, Clara Amanda, Iver Oscar, Harold Theodore (my grandfather) and Alice Margarite. Their first child Anna was born in Adams Minnesota and the others in Cresco Iowa.
Albert Gravos, Anne's husband, was born 06 SEP 1855 in Skei Nor-Trondelag Norway.It is thought that they may have grown up in close proximaty of each other.
On Anna Maries Death Record in 1927 it states mothers maiden name as Skyol.
On Anton Thomas social security record it states mothers maiden name as Skei.
Anne T. Gravos was born on 17 DEC 1865 and was born in Norway.She died 02 JAN 1908 in Cresco Iowa from Bright's Disease.There was a small obituary stating that she and her father T. Oloerson/Olouson?? were from Norway.She is buried in Oak Lawn Cemetery in Cresco, IA.
There are several pictures in this bible.One listed only as Anne T. Gravos.The picture taken in Iowa.A christening picture of her daughter Anna Marie was taken in Austin, MN.
I have been unable to find any relative of Anne as I still am unsure of her maiden name.I assume the T. in her fathers first initial is what the T. in her middle initial stands for.
Is there anyone out there that can help me solve this puzzle.I would appreicate any help you can give.If you are family, please contact me at my email address.I would love to hear from you.
