Frå Førde til USA i 1881 - Nils Andreas Gjertsson Halbrænd - Hans lagnad?

Recommended Posts

Gisle Hersvik

Søker informasjon om Nils Andreas Gjertsson Halbrænd etter at han emigrerte frå Bergen i 1881.

 

Nils Andreas Gjertsson var f. 24.09.1864 Halbrænd i Førde. Foreldrene var:
- Mari Olsdtr, f. 20.1.1828, d. ???

- Gjert Nilson f. 3.7.1830, d. 8.12.1864

 

Nils Andreas sin dåp:

Gjert Nilsen, faren til Nils Andreas d. 8.12.1864, Nr. 1 i 1865:

Her er han saman med mor og søster:

Nils Andreas som pleiesønn:

004 Nils Gjertsen () 01 1864 Førde S. og Prgj. - Pleies. ug forsørges af sin Moder tjener i Bergen

 

NB! Eg har ikkje funne ut kva som skjedde med mor til Nils Andreas.

 

Emigrasjonen til Nils Andreas:

21.4.1881; https://www.digitalarkivet.no/view/8/pe00000000663735 

- skreven som Niels Andr. Gjertsen Halbrændt

 

Ifølge bygdeboka for Førde så hadde Nils Andreas både ei tante og ein onkel som reiste til USA:

- Olianne Nilsdtr. Fauske, f. 25.2.1840, utflytta 1878. Finn ho ikkje i emigrantdatabasen....

- Ole Martinus Nilsen Fauske, f. 19.7.1843, utflytta 1870. Er det kanskje han som er heime på besøk og reiser 20.4.1881 (dagen før Nils Andreas)? https://www.digitalarkivet.no/view/8/pe00000000663700

I ein artikkel om "Sunnfjord i Amerika" i "Jol i Sunnfjord 1927" står følgjande: Av andre sunnfjordingar i Ossiana county nemner han desse: (...) Nils Gjertsen Hafstad. Det skal vere son til ein Gjert som budde paa Halbrend som bygningsmann. Nils for til Amerika daa han var berre ung.

 

Ossiana er kanskje feilskriving for Oceana County, Michigan?

Takk Sven,

Eg prøvde å finne meir om Nels og Carrie før C1900, men så langt har eg ikkje funne noko. Det kan synes som dei ikkje hadde born, iallefall ingen som vaks opp eller budde saman med dei.

 

Er det mogeleg å finne ut kven Carrie var (inkl hennes foreldre) og når Nels og Carrie vart gifte?

De skal ha blitt gift i 1891,ifølge Census 1900.

 

Kan han ha brukt faren sitt farsnavn ved vielsen?

Takk Ann-Mary,

Eg såg på denne og det står i kirkeboka at begge var frå Stavanger, og i tillegg er nok Carrie litt for ung. Ho skal ifølge innlegg over vere f. 24 Jan 1861.
