Just thought I'd take a peek and .....!

Born: 11 March 1852 in Bakkesatra, the garden,Mehren,Lier,Norway.
Son: Einar Mork 1878-
Son: Hans Mork(High Position Hotel Viking in Oslo.
Spouse of the Hans Mork at the top died:1900
Sorry,but is all I have except - his spouse was the sister of HANS TOLLSON (father of Henry Tollson).
and....His brother was Hagbart/th -who took ffor his last name - his fathers first name, and added son to the end like they normally did. Hagbart Christoffersen/Christophersen/on
was my great grandfather.Hagbarths father was Christoffer Ellensen (Born: 12 June 1828)and his mother: Marthe Hansdatter(Born: 11 May 1827 and Died young: 3 May 1873. Christoffer & Marthe were married:22 Feb.1852in Lier,Buskerud,Norway.
Hans Mork other brothers were: Edvard(who died young),Gunerius,Gorgen(George),and another Edvard took name Christofferson/Christophersen/on for their last names.However:2 of Hagbarths sons took the name Morch--it was the farm name. One of which was my grandfather. Hans also had the 2 sisters: Annette who died infant it looks and Karen Mathea.
Karen married a Mr. Christensen?Their children: Martha Hagen lived Ovrestorgt,82,Drammen, the others lived Lier,Norway. The others being: Robert,Emil,Irene,Einar,Kaspara,Kristoffer, and Olaf.
I just thought that name Tollson--I had heard before and out came my 3-ring binder of Christopherson/ffersen.
My great grandfather Hagbarth Christofferson/pherson(Born:19 Nov. 1858 and died: 27 March 1931) AND married: Gustava Helene F. Pedersen( 1868-1920 - Norway)on 13 May 1884. Their children: Karen,Rugnhild,Ben,Oscar(my grandfather),Astrid,Eli(pronounced A-lee),Helen,Mozart, and Christoffer.
Hagbarth & Hans' brother Gorgen(George) had a son: Victor B. Christopherson.Victor married:Hildegard Schwindt. Janet is related through him. Victors sister was named Alma.
Try the other Christophersen name: It used to be listed with an o---Christopherson. I have more information entered under one of them anyway- Just look for me.
Glad to discover you-Its like getting a Christmas present. Thanks
I got a lot of this information from Janet Larsen in MIchigan.
