My grandfather's name was Hjalmar Rude. He was from Romsdal, Norway and immigrated to the U.S. in 1906 by way of Canada. He was married to Dora Pederson and lived in Great Falls Montana before moving to Portland, Oregon. He had a brother named Karl who lived in Tacoma Washington. Other brothers and a sister may have been: Surren, Gilbert, Ingral and Ragna. The spelling on these names may not be correct, and its possible that there may have been more family. What information we have came from my grandmother who was near 100 years old at the time. From the census records, it appears that my grandfather was born in 1887. I don't know the names of his parents but do have a photo of his mother.
