Re: Torbjorn Amundson of Nervik. Etne,Norway
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed reply to my inquiry.My husband's grandmother was Martha (that's the spelling I had) who married Raymond(who was born 05 Jan 1891 in Kendall county, Illinois)and had Ralph (his father). I have a photograph of Engebrit and Helen from their wedding which I could email to you if you haven't seen it. I'm not 100% sure but I think that Hellen's parents may be Owen Nervig (B. April 1839; D. 1903 in Story County, Iowa) and Julia or Jane Stenssand ? They were married in 1864 in Norway. I found a site on the net that has a huge amount of information on Story County, Iowa and it's norwegian population and another one with an emphasis on Illinois and the Tri-county area (Kendall, Grundy and La Salle) if you aren't familiar with these I'd be more than happy to send them to you! You can find my tree listed on www.geneanet.com (it's a free site) and do a search for Nervig. Just click on the left side of the searches that come up and you'll go to my home page. That ought to give you the bigger picture ! Thanks for sharing your information with me , I really appreciated it!
