[#73097] Gunder Olsen Sjøli from Brandval parish, Solør

Recommended Posts

I am searching for the emigration date for Gunder Olsen Sjøli, born 20 November 1840, the son of Ole Gundersen and Kari Eriksdtr. He married Maren Amundtr. Hannastedmoen, born 17 April 1844. I have located their marriage record in the Brandval parish church records - on 24 May 1865. I cannot find them in the Oslo, 1867- emigrant departure records so they most likely emigrated in 1865 or 1866. They lived a few years in Winneshek County, Iowa and then homesteaded in Otter Tail County, Minnesota in 1870. Did either Gunder or Maren have siblings who emigrated to America or siblings who remained in Norway? Gunder and Maren Sjøli (now Americanized to Shirley) had 12 children so there are many descendants on this side of the Atlantic! Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
