Emigration record of Johanna Andersdatter to America

Recommended Posts

Carla J Tweeton

Johanna Andersdatter (born Jan. 22, 1844) emigrated to America (MN) after having a child

with Nils Engebretsen , a sergeant Weien from Norderhov, Buskerud.  Nils was unmarried on

the 1865 census.  This child was Nikolai, born 23 Aug. 1876, recorded in the church books

of Tyristrand in Hole.  A possible other child was born named Andrew or Anton.   I cannot

find when Johanna and children emigrated to MN but in 1878 she married the widower of

her sister, Karen Andersdatter whose emigration is recorded in 1870.  So Johanna was the

2nd wife of Christen Johannesen (later Tanberg name used in America.)  Christen had left in 1869

for Prescott, WI and Karen apparently joined him there before they all left for Wilkin County in



Thank you for any ideas.
