looking for relatives
Hello Knutdson family,
I am looking for some of my family members. Rachel Knudtson was my great grandfathers sister, she was born Rachel Toreson from Norway. Rachel came to Illinois and married Rasmus Knudtson/Knutson...( I have dates for Rachel and Rasmus) but they are not my problem...my problem is finding her brother, SOREN TORESON/THORSON who came to America and some time later changed his name to MOLAND...sometimes he was known to go by "Sam" Thorson or Moland. Soren was born abt.1847 Norway and died March 13 or 15, 1889 in Milan Township, DeKalb County, Illinois.
He married Olene K. Vege (have seen it spelled Vegs and Vega also) but looks like Vege by the marriage cert of which I have a copy. Olene was 26 when she married Soren in 1876 making her birth year about 1850.
Also searching for any info on OLIVE GOSHEN , no exact dates but the dates would be in the same time frame as Soren and Olene and also in Illinois.
I am just wondering what happened to Soren and Olene and Olive, cause of death, where buried etc......I have looked for a few years now and any help would be greatly appreciated.
