Re: Any EricksEns out there?
My grandfather George M. Ericksen, his brother(Oscar W.F. Ericksen) and a sister all
came from Drammen (outside Oslo) one sister
remained in Norway. Originally he was in Philly then to Montana, married my grandmother also from Norway. He spelled the name with the second "E" as did his brother. However, census twice spelled name as Erickson. The 1910 and 1920 and I expect the 1930 will also spell it with the "o" instead of the "E". Road alongside his farm in Central Oregon was known and had hand lettered street sign in mid 1930's listed it as "Ericksen's Road". Present day street listings list it as "Erickson Road". IMPORTANT TO SEARCH UNDER BOTH SPELLINGS.
