Abraham Hegland (ABE)born in Norway and came to United States.He died I think about 1935 in Freeborn, Minnesota.
He had been a Blacksmith and lived there with his family.
Wife Emma (Trytten or tryten) father Iver O. Tryten may of come from Norway then to Iowa and then onto Mn. His wife was Christina or Christine (Clemetson or Klemston) not sure of spelling.
The Abraham Hegland family included Emma his wife, children:
Perna Charlote Hegland, Dorthy, Qwen, Peg, Irene. Hegland
I know Perna remained in Mn. maybe the Emmon's MN. or Albert Lea area.Then moved to Washington State by the 1940's.Her mother Emma Hegalnd came with her.. After Abraham died about 1935.
But the remainder of the families stayed in MN. Dorthy, Qwen, Peg and Irene.
Eventually, Qwen also came onto Washington State.
If anyone has any data on these families I would love to chat..I have small bits and pieces now but would love to learn more.
