Re: Ole Godfred ANDERSON (b. 29 Jan 1871, Vanstad, Mal
Thanks for having taken the time to search the 1880 census for me, Mel. Your information is useful as it establishes for future research -- an earliest date (Summer of 1880)after which both Ole Godfred Anderson and his wife Carrie Hove must have arrived in the United States and South Dakota. Until some primary record source is found that refutes this, this is very useful information and is consistent with the Anderson family's account of both Ole and Carrie. Thanks again, Mel. Your help is very much appreciated.
By the way, I noticed that on the subject line of my original query, Ole's birth information got clipped off. He was born 29 Jan 1871 in Vanstad Parish, Malmohus County, Sweden. We have no birth date yet for Catrina Caren "Carrie" Hove. Family information does claim she was born in Norway.
