Does anyone have any more information on: Salmine Sophia Severine Pedersen (1862-1914) aka Salmina Olesdatter, Emigrated 1884 from Farsund, Norway to New York City, New York, USA (b. March 27, 1862, Braekne farm, Vanse, Farsund, Vest-Agder, Norway - d. December 12, 1914, probably Klugeland farm, Hered parish, Farsund, Vest-Agder, Norway) Salmine took the name 'Salmine Pedersen' when she emigrated to the United States. Her sister would take the name 'Lina Olson' and her brother would take the name 'Otto Olson' in the United States. In Norway, family names were not in use yet, Otto Olson would be 'Otto the son of Ole'. Salmine was born at Braekne farm in 1862 to Ole Mattias Pedersen (1822-c1914) and Tea Johanne Torstensdatter (1825-1864). Ole was a baker in Farsund and when Tea died he raised the children on his own. Salmine was christened on June 08, 1862 in Vanse parish in Farsund. Her siblings include: Peder Mathias Olsen (1848-?) who married Selina Larsen and had a daughter, Inga Pedersen (1885-1927), who emigrated to the US; Teodor Johan Olsen (1849-?); Sophia Marie Olsdatter (1852-?); Josette Terefia Olsdatter (1854-?) aka Joletta Theresa Olsdatter; Otto Olson (1858-1921) aka Ottan Olsen, who emigarted to Chicago in Illinois became a barber and married Hannah E. Hansen (1864-1936); and Lena Olson (1860-c1925) aka Hanne Eline Olsdatter who emigrated to Chicago in Illinois and married Andrew Havig Jensen (1861-1930). Salmine appears to be traveling outside Norway with her father, Ole, on September 04, 1884. She is listed as 'Salmine Wemmeland' in the Norwegian Emigrants Register for this trip and this may be a phonetic spelling of her married name 'Winblad'. She married John Edward Winblad (1856-1914) around 1884 and they both emigrated to New York City in the United States from Norway. John was the son of Anton Julius Winblad I (1828-1901), a schoolteacher, and Elsa Maria Elisabeth Näslund (1829-1907) of Sweden. Together John and Salmine had the following children: Anton (Tony) Julius Winblad (1886-1975) who married Eva Ariel Lattin (1892-1939) and after her death married Marguerite (Marge) Van Rensselaer Schuyler (1891-1972); Theodora Winblad (1888) who died as an infant; Mary Winblad (1889) who died as an infant; Otto Edward Winblad (1892) who died as an infant; Marie (Mae) Elizabeth Winblad (1895-1987) who married Arthur Oscar Freudenberg (1891-1968); John (Eddie) Edward Winblad II (1897-1899) who died as a youth from pertussis; and Otto Perry Winblad (1902-1977) who was born in New Jersey and married Helen Louise Hollenbach (1905-1928) and after her death married Leah Maria Way (1901-1986). In 1886 the family was living at 540 Canal Street in Greenwich Village in Manhattan, New York City. On April 27, 1894 Salmine, and her son Anton, were returning from Kristiansand, Vest-Agder, Norway and they are listed in the Norwegian Emigrants Index as 'Vinblad'. Around 1898 they had a custom house built in Jersey City, New Jersey and they moved there to be in a more countrified setting. During the 1900 Census they were living at 437 Wayne Street in Jersey City in their new house. On August 02, 1901 John Winblad was in Kristiansand, Norway returning to the US. It is not known if Salmine was with him. Sometime in 1910 John and Salmine moved the family to Santa Barbara on the Isle of Pines in Cuba to a citrus plantation he bought. On April 03, 1910 the family appears on the census in Jersey City without Anton. On April 17, 1910 Salmine's son, Anton Julius Winblad, married Eva Ariel Lattin (1892-1939) on Long Island. The family oral tradition was that they met in Cuba. On June 24, 1910 the house in Jersey City was sold. The family's many trips returning from Cuba and Norway are recorded in the passenger lists for New York harbor and several trips are recorded in the Norway passenger lists. Salmine returned to New York City from Cuba, alone, on August 08, 1911. John and Salmine's children Maria and Otto spent about a year and a half in Cuba and returned to Jersey City, New Jersey on March 26, 1912. Anton became the postmaster for Santa Barbara around 1914. John and Salmine returned to New Jersey to attend Maria's wedding to Arthur Freudenberg on February 28, 1914 and from there they went to visit family in Norway, taking Otto Winblad with them. It is possible that they visited for the funeral of her father, Ole, who died in 1914. Salmine's sister, Lena Olson, joined her in Norway. John Winblad died on September 24, 1914 in Farsund. Lena Olson, Salmine's sister, returned to the US from Norway on September 30, 1914; Salmine died on December 12, 1914. Otto Winblad, now parentless returned to the US on July 06, 1915 from Norway. On that same day, Otto's brother Anton, and Anton's wife Eva, returned from Cuba to meet Otto Winblad in New York. Both Salmine and John are buried in Herad parish in Farsund but their graves have not been located yet and may have been recycled. Source: Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ).
