Haagen Back

Recommended Posts

Tom Beck

I am looking for information about my great-great Grandfather, Haagen Back, who was born in about 1831.  I have found a listing on the Norwegian archives here, http://digitalarkivet.arkivverket.no/ft/person/pf01038310008367, which says there was a Haagen Back (maybe the same one?) who was born in Reendalen in 1831, and was a handelsmand.  I am interested in any information about him, including when he would have immigrated to the US (around 1872 I believe, winding up in Norwegian Grove, Minnesota)

 

Thanks for any help,

Tom Beck

This is really interesting! Perhaps this should have been posted in the User's forum instead. I really hope someone who specialize in Rendalen genealogy sees your posting. :)

 

As another user I therefore have some thoughts on this questions.

 

Firstly: Did you notice the maid Karen Eriksdatter Back living in this houshold? Just in case she is related to Haagen, I searched for her and I think I have forund her baptism in Rendalen. She is born 1843-01-08: http://digitalarkivet.arkivverket.no/kb/dp/person/pd00000005275751

 

These parents, Erik Olsen and Kari Haagensdatter Nedre Bakken have more children:

Erik in 1839: http://digitalarkivet.arkivverket.no/kb/dp/person/pd00000005275028

Halvor in 1841: http://digitalarkivet.arkivverket.no/kb/dp/person/pd00000005275331

Karen in 1843 and

Martin in 1844: http://digitalarkivet.arkivverket.no/kb/dp/person/pd00000005275802

 

In 1867 I found Halvor Erksen Back emigrating in a small group of people from Rendalen - all headed for Chicago: http://www.norwayheritage.com/udvandret.asp?type=passengerlist&ps=95684&jo=126

 

Halvor and Karen may not be Haagen's siblings, but perhaps related in some other way.

 

 

You see, it is a very interesting family Haagen Back lives with in Trondheim. In this houshold we find the father http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ingvald_Undset and grandparents of Sigrid Undset, the famous Norwegian author who in 1928 was awarded the Nobel Price in litterature. http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigrid_Undset

 

Halvor (Halvorsen) Undset's mother (who is Maren Haagensdatter 1798-1860) comes from Nedre Bakken Undset, so it will be interesting to find out if your Haagen is related to the family he is living with in 1865.

 

My (and my mother's) maternal ancestors also comes from this valley, (and Halvor Undset was my fourth grandfather's third cousin),  so I really hope someone with more knowledge than I reads this.

Maren Haagensdatter b. 1798 and Kari Haagensdatter b. 1810 are sisters, daughters of Haagen Jonsen (1772-1854) and Siri Eriksdatter Søndre Bjøntegaard (1772-1858)  [page 288 in Jacob Breda Bull: Øvre Rendalen - Gårdenes og slektens historie, published in 1940]

 

Kari Haagensdatter married Erik Olsen 'Vinterbrækken' b. 1810 in 1830.

Haagen Back was therefore staying with his first cousin Halvor Undset and his family in Trondheim. :)

According to the 'bygdebok' Erik Olsen Vinterbrækken and Kari Haagensdatter Nedre Bakken Undset

had these children, all of them born at Bakken Undset:

.

Haagen b. 1831
Ola b. 1833
Siri b. 1836
Jon b. 1837
Erik b. 1839
Halvor b. 1841
Karen b. 1843
Martin b. 1844
Ola b. 1847

.

[Page 268 Vinterbrækken in Bull's book about Rendalen.]

.

Erik Olsen was the son of Ola Eriksen Søndre Bjønngaard (1774-1864) and Sigrid Halvorsdatter Vinterbrækken (1780-1831)
Erik's son, Halvor E. Back, pioneer, building contractor, is mentioned in Martin Ulvestads book: Nordmændene i Ameica / Norwegians in America * (page 530)  living in Fergus Falls, Minnesota. His son Carl Back, lawyer since 1904, was living in Minot, North Dakota.

Hei Grethe!VERY interesting!!!One of the censuses I looked at (can't remember which...might have been 1910, said that Karen immigrated 1868 or 1869...I know the 1900 census had a different immigration year for her)...mvh Patty

I have not seen these previous postings.


I am trying to locate the family members whereabouts prior to their emigration, because Haagen doesn't come up in emigrant searches.

Anne-Lise Hansen - thank you so much for your wonderful replies!  I sent in my earlier brief reply before seeing your detailed posts.  

 

I will digest your information, and follow up for sure!  I am sorry if I posted on the wrong forum, as I am new to this archive and the proper format.

 

I am very pleased to have some info about this Haagen Back who may well be my great-great-Grandfather.  

 

best regards,

Tom Beck
