Jeg kikket på temaet Norway Day og gikk litt videre. På Drammen-Ringerike-lagets sider var en omtale av Rev. N.C.Hovde, visstnok fra Modum. Hvem var han?

River Falls Mini-Stevne Boasts 37 Participants [condensed] During the one day lag meeting September 29 at River Falls, WI the board registerd 37 members and friends of Ringerike Drammens Districts Lag. Tables of resources, especially from Modum, were within easy reach; many belonged to Aloha Hovd, chairperson of the local arrangements. President Narv Somdahl brought all the lag's large laminated maps of the nine Norwegian communities included in the lag. Both Phyllis Maxwell and Marilyn Sorensen were on hand to help answer questions.

 

After a welcome and introductions of board members, Donna Pearson gave a history of River Falls and the changes from milling and lunbering to the present. Several of the first pioneers came from Modum, including Rev. N.C. Hovde, whose relatives in the area attended the lag meeting.

Jeg fant en notis om Nils C. Hovde i en oversikt over pioneerer i Martell, Pierce Co., Wisconsin. Jeg har tidligere sett at det reiste mange moinger til det området og i følge teksten bidro Nils til at de reiste dit.

 

Hovde (also Christofferson, Christopherson), Rev. Nels/Nils (1825 – 1892). Nels became a logger in Dunn County, Wisconsin, in 1851 after emigrating from Modum, Norway. He settled three 80-acre parcels in Martell Township near Rush River Settlement before converting to Methodism in 1854 and becoming a minister who traveled for the Norwegian-Danish Methodist circuit through Minnesota and Wisconsin. A good salesman for immigration, he “sold” St. Croix and Pierce counties to Norwegians during visits to his home region of Modum, Norway, in 1863 and 1872. He used the surnname Christopherson. He and wife Anna Dorothea Jahr (1829 – 1897) retired in St. Paul, Minnesota, where they are buried.
