[#73942] Johan Martin Svendsen/Schow f. 1835 i Vestby, til USA 1866, norsk etterkommer?

Recommended Posts

Johan Martin Svendsen (f. 4.11.1835 at Svindskaug farm Akershus, Vestby) emigrated from Norway in 1866 with his wife Dorthea Bjerke (f. 17.9.1838) and 3 children. The family traveled to Quebec then to Winona, Minnesota. In 1870 they homesteaded in the Red River Valley, near Fargo North Dakota. He used the name 'Martin Schow' in the USA. I am trying to help a friend in North Dakota, find more about her family that remained in Norway.John Martin's father was Svend Evensen (Svindschoug) and his mother was Kirtine Ulrichsdatter Galbye (f. 1802).In 1865 Johan's oldest brother Even Svendsen age 40 is living on the Svindskoug farm with his wife Karen and children Tilla, Svend, Anne and Elise. Johan's mother must have re-married. In 1865, she is listed on a second Svindskoug farm with husband Haagen Kaspersen (f. 1788) along with the children from Kristine's first marriage (Anton, Julius, Mathie, Maren and Alette).We are looking for relatives from this family still living in Norway. I have made a similar entry at disnorge.no (Akershus/Vestby)...in early November. But, so far no new information has come. So I am trying here at DA for help. Du kan skriver på norsk. Tusen takk for alle helpe! mvh Patty

Hei, Jeg har nok bare litt informasjon her. Svend Evensen døde 27.2.1851, og da hans hustru i 1852 giftet seg igjen, delte hun gården. Sønnen Even Svendsen tok over søndre Svinskaug. Han solgte dette bruket igjen i 1872 og kjøpte da gården Bjerkeskog i Garder/Vestby. Denne gården gikk ut av familiens eie 1928. Jeg vet ikke om etterkommere av familien.Moren Kirstines bruk ble etter hvert overtatt av sønn av hennes nye mann. Jeg kjenner ikke til etterkommere. Det er ikke etterkommere av disse familiene på Svinskaug i dag.Mulig det kan være etterkommere av Kirstines familie fra Galby? Kan se på det en annen gang.Mvh Jarleif Nordheim, Garder i Vestby
