I am looking for information on Paul Olstad, b. 1887 and his sister Marit Olstad, b. 1885 who came to Minnesota with their uncle, Iver P. Olstad, in early 1905.The three departed Oslo on Feb. 24 1905 on the ship Montebello with the destination recorded as Minnesota.Iver P. Olstad was my grandfather.
Paul and Marit were the children of Petter Paulson Olstad, b. June 4, 1862 and Mari Simensdatter Tungen, b. December 23, 1862 and came from near Kvikne, Nord Fron, Oppland, Norway which is very near Vinstra in the Gudbrandsdalen Valley north of Lillehamer.
“Family legend” has it Paul and Marit stayed with my grandfather for a short time and then headed “west”.I know nothing more about their whereabouts.
