Help locating great grandfather Oslo death 1928

Recommended Posts

Gianna
Hello and greetings.
I am proud to be visiting Norway September 11th, 2017.  
While in Oslo I would like to do some research on my family - mostly my great grandfather.
 
My family is very proud of our heritage and we have a great mystery in our family. Where is my great grandfather?
We can trace his roots back to his birth and farm, which we plan to visit while in Norway. But no one knows where he is buried. Our family members swear he died in Norway, but no one went when the family was notified and to this day we do not know what became of him.
 
I have done a great deal of research and can trace everything but his death. I will be in Oslo and would like to try and finally solve our family mystery.
 
I am including as much info on him in this post and hope to get guidance in how I can research his possible final resting place.
 
I have time available on Sept 12th or 13th, 2017 if needed to come to the center or meet with someone.
 
Thank you for any advice you may provide
 
Gianna Kraft

My Great grandfather :
Notice on date of death it only gives year. We know that his wife showed widow on the 1930 US Census
 
We have records that show Herman Evjon (which is him type O on ellis island transcript) traveled from Norway to NY USA in 1922. 
on the Ellis record there is an address listed in Oslo - 
 
Our family believes he returned to the Oslo via ship sometime between 1922 and his death of 1928. That is where I hit my dead end.
I have traced everything and left no stone unturned and I can not find where he passed/died.

From LDS records.
Herman Syversen married Oline Stensrud 1871 in Rochester, Olmsted, Minnesota.

Stensrud is a Norwegian farm name, Olines father was Halvor Stensrud. 

Oline Stensrud born Oct. 5. 1855 in Hesper, Winneshiek, Iowa, died April 7. 1941, Branden, Minnesota, burial Moe Cemetary, Branden, Minnesota.
Herman Evjen died 1928, Rochester, Minnesota.

Halvor Halvorsen Stensrud arrived at Rock Dell (Minnesota?) June 18. 1855 along with Endre Aslebraaten after been at Rock Prairie, Illinois. Stensrud settled in section 9, see alphabetical from the Kolkin list here

Farmer Herman Syversen Evjen, 80 years, died 1925.05.19 at Diakonhjemmet [a Hospital]. Adress: Frognerveien 6. Wife Oline Evjen og 7 children in America. Owned ca 70.000 Norwegian kroner.

 

He was buried at Vestre gravlund (Western Cemetery) in Oslo, but I don't think the grave still exist.

#4. At least Herman Evjen is not registered at http://www.begravdeioslo.no (the cemetery administration's public register). However, this register is not complete. Sometimes I have experienced that the headstone includes more names than listed in the register. So I would recommend Gianna that she contacts the cemetery administration to ask where he was buried at Vestre. Other family members might have been buried in the same grave.

Thank you so much.

Funny question... why the mention of the "Owned ca 70.000 Norwegian kroner."

Was that in a probate notice?

I used tgge link above to search. Correct he is not listed. I do not see any contact info to ask via email. Will I need to visit in person or is there some way to contact prior to my arrival?

Thank you

Would I be able to find any other info for him? A possible address listed when he returned to Norway via ship?

Also he would of had probate as he had money and possible property?

I have a previous address from an earlier ship travel listed as Frognerveien 42
