Graving/Gravningen Ancestors

Recommended Posts

Melissa Graving-Mead

Jeg søker etter familiene til min norske familie som immigrerte til Amerika. Min fars etternavn er Graving her, men han ble alltid fortalt at den var forkortet fra (soundex) Gravingson. Jeg har funnet noen poster av folk med etternavnet Gravningen som synes å matche postene her ved å bruke navnet Graving, men er fortsatt ikke klart. Bestefarfaren min, Gustav Frederik Graving, født 1888 til Randi Harmansli, var tilsynelatende en stow-away, så det er ingen oversikt over hans ankomst.

Buried in same cemetery as Randi Graving is Louis Oliver Graving (1892-1972): https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/102876736/louis-oliver-graving

 

Per his 1917/18 draft registration, he was also born in Milton, ND, like Gustav Fred Graving (who died 1919 in West Virginia): https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-817T-9Y9F?i=1290&cc=1968530

 

Per both his draft registration and the 1915 North Dakota census (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-89LJ-L3P8?i=112&cc=2346284), Louis was living with his mother Randi Graving (no father) in Ramsey County, ND. Note that Ramsey County is just to the south of Cavalier County, ND, where Milton is located.
