; I should appreciate if someone could do some lookups for me on the Krogen family from Vinger parish in Norway, that lived in Stevens County. I can help with information about Vinger parish in Norway. I will give you some more information if someone is willing to help.
I'm searching for any information about the KROGEN brothers who emigrated from Vinger parish in Norway to Minnesota more than hundred years ago. I know that MENTS KROGEN, born September 20, 1874 died 1963 in Minnesota lived in Morris, Stevens County. He was married to OLANDA KROGEN. His brother OLE KROGEN, born April 10, 1872 was married to THEA KROGEN. The third brother was THORVALD KROGEN, born November 23, 1869. I don't know the name of his wife, but he had four children, Otto, Emmi, Gunda and Anni. The KROGEN brothers were cousins to my father and I hope to find some second cousins "over there".

Johanna or Hannah KNUDSEN was born in Story City, Iowa around 1874, and married John P. ANDERSON, lived in Hancock, Minnesota. She appears in her mother's obit in 1922, so must be alive after that.

I am searching for information about two families EYSTAD/JOHNSON, who lived in Morris Minnesota in the 1930's as my father-in-law stayed on the EYSTAD farm a few times in the summer. His aunt's name was Lena EYSTAD and he remembers that his two cousin's names were Axel and Swarie (probably a nickname?). He also had a Aunt there name Lena JOHNSON. Both of these ladies are the sister of Severin JOHNSON who occasionally lived in the area too because their daughter Alice was born in Morris 1898. I wrote to all the EYSTAD'S currently listed in the phone book, but as usual, got no response to any of my letters. I wouldn't think that was that common of a name that one of those people weren't related and would write back, but who knows? I have not yet been to the National Archives in Seattle to lookup the Minnesota census for 1900, 1910 or 1920 but plan to in the next month. If you have the census for those years would appreciate a look up for EYSTAD, JOHNSON. I am sorry I do not know the names of their husbands. If their names pop right out I would appreciate knowing something about them. If I could get any info about them then maybe I can get find an obituary or something that will tell me about their children and have someone I could write to for family information. Oh yes, Severin JOHNSON is on the Washington State census for those years. Thank you for any help. If you know of anyone in Morris, I would be happy to contact that person personally. Again, thanks so much for any help.

ABRAHAMZON.. Researching Abrahamzon family and searching for naturalization records and/or any contact with people researching same family. Karl Hedwig Abrahamzon (z instead of s due to immigration authorities) came to Morris MN in 1897/1898 with his sisters Ebba and Alice and parents Charles Eric Abrahamzon (Abrahamsson) and Hedwig. Not sure how long they were in this area but would appreciate help in determining naturalization and length of stay in Morris.

Loren & Mary Jo Dahling Saturday, August 8, 1998 11:27 PM
I was looking for Mrs. B. DAGENDORFER (b: 1820's-1830's), sister to Henry BOHMBACH, in Morris circa 1920. I have found Margaret DEGENDORFER/DECKENDORFER as early as 1880 and as late as 1920 in Morris and Scott Twp, but she was a widow. Census says she was born Apr 1840 and had ten children, though five were living in 1900. In 1880 they were Morris age 18, Frederick age 15, Emma age 13, Bertha age 9, Johnny age 7, Robert age 5, and Lewis age 3. Morris thru Emma born in Minnesota, and the rest born in Iowa.
  I lost track of Morris and Emma. Fred married Ernestine by 1895 and was missing by the 1910 census. Bertha apparently married a Mr. Lois but was widowed with three children by 1895. John was farming with his brothers in the 1895 census, but I lost him after that. Robert married Maggie and had seven children in Morris in 1920. Lewis/Louis married Carrie and had four children in 1920. Margaret was living with Louis' family in 1920.   I assume Margaret was the sister to Henry BOHMBACH (d: 1917), Louis BOHMBACH, Anna VOLLMERS, Mary HOLST, and Anna SIEBRASSE in Goodhue County. There was a John and Katharine BOHMBACH living in Morris by about 1889. Katherine had died by 1910. John was living with his daughter, Anna GIESEKE (her second marriage). John and Katherine used to live in Goodhue County. I have always hoped he was another brother. I would be very thankful to hear from anyone that knows anything about these people.
