  1. Greetings all, This is my first post. I am searching for information on my great grandfather who immigrated from Norway and lived in the State of Iowa, USA most of his life. He married a fellow Norwegian (Sarah) who's family was also from Haugesund and they had 12 children. I am having trouble finding any history on him prior to immigrating and the following is what I know: His name once in the United States was Alexander or Aleak or Alek Lee. I was told he changed his last name because it was difficult to pronounce. -He was born in Haugesund, Rogaland, Norway on 29 Sep 1850 (obituary) -He came to America on 11 July 1869 (obituary) -I was told he was a fisherman before coming to America and that he disliked the cold/frozen hands of fishing -He stopped in Cedar Rapids, IA once he got to America and lived in Chicago for 2 years before relocating back to southwestern Iowa.(obituary) I have no information on his family from Norway or where he came to shore in America. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards, Darin Lee Liberty, MO USA
