Re: verness / norway / minnesota
My Greatgrandfather was also Nels Gustav Verness died 3/28/1927 of Leukemia, married to Annie M. Hyslop of Waseca MN died 1/18/1919 at the same time as one of their babies from? pneumonia/flu.They resided on a farm in West Concord, we have actually found the farm site and the cemetary.Nels brother was John Verness they came to US from Tromjenne Norway when John was 25 and Nels Gustav was age 16.Their farms were side by side.Descended from Nicholas or ?Nicolai and Signe Verness of Norway according to John Verness's obituary.
I wonder if you are related to a Mike and Isabel Allen of Iowa, (my great aunt is Isabel, sister of Logan my grandfather)
We are particularly interested in Hyslop descendency.Can you or anyone else help us out here?
