Hogan / Olson - Family Tree

Updated July 6, 2001

About Our Family Research

I have been off and on researching the Hogan / Olson family line since 1986. I have come to a roadblock which I believe could quite easily be removed, if I only had the 1890 census. Unfortunately, I do not. Thus, I need help locating my Olson line.

Family stories indicate there were too many Olson's on the mailroute and thus my GGrandfather Julius, along with another brother got their name changed from Olson to Hogan. They wanted the Norwegian 'Haugen' but the clerk/schoolteacher, was Irish, and thus the Irish spelling of 'Hogan'. We are not of any Irish heritage as far as I can see.

I did find the church marriage record for Julius' parents Antoinette and Ole. This entry indicated that Ole was born in Kosernoug... I have checked with the Norwegian consultate here in Minneapolis, and they know of no place named such. I am at a loss where this could be. Any help would be appreciated...

I have not been able to locate any death notice of Ole, the husband of Antoinette either. Family rumors indicate here too, that there was a divorce. Court records do not have anything listed here.

It is hard to give up, and I do not want to, but any help would be appreciated. Please email me at ''
