Christoffer and Johanna Johnson lived at the farm "Sundgarten" near Sor Frøn, Gudbransdalen, Norway. He apparently would ferry farmers and other persons across a river or lake in that area. Christoffer and Johanna came to America in 1867. They arrived in Quebec, Canada the day my ggrandmother Anna was one year old. They went to Black River Falls where this picture was taken. There they lived and raised a very large family. The Johnson farm is still in family in Wisconsina (9 KB)
