Missing Great-Great Aunt
My gr/gr aunt, Hansina (or Hansine) Wangen (b. 17Jul1875) in Otta, Norway, emigrated to the US in 1877 with her parents (Ole H & Ragnhild J), her younger sister (Ingeborg) and her aunt (Ingeborg H).They settled 1st in Appleton, MN; then moved to Petersburg, ND in the mid-1890s.
It's said that after several years of caring for and watching over her sick mother (her younger sisters and brother were all married and she was still living with her parents) that in 1906, left home in search of something better.The family did try to search for her as best someone could in the early 1900s but they never heard from her again.To this day no one in my family has been able to find anything on her after 1906. Some say she may have went to Montana. Incidentally, her sister-in-law had come to the Petersburg area from Havre, MT.She is also not listed in any census after 1900, possibly due to getting married (or death).
If anyone out there has any possible leads, please let me know!
