Eg har i mange år slite med å finna ut av denne huslyden med bakgrunn frå Urnes i Hafslo.  Siste utveg no er Brukarforum.  Kanskje kan nokon hjelpa meg komma vidare med huslyden til Martin og Bertha Olson?

 

Eg attgjev frå manuskriptet mitt om denne sonen til Johannes Olson frå Urnes (1831-1898):

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Erik Martinus, kjend som Martin Olson, f. i Vernon Co., Wis. 3.3.1869, gifte seg i Vernon Co., Wis. 10.5.1902 med Bertha Marie Golberg, dotter av husmannsdotteri Anna Jørgensdotter frå Lauvhjellene under Dale prestegard i Luster (1841-1921).  Ho var f. i Vernon Co., Wis. 10.2.1871.  Martin og Bertha farma først i Christiana township, Vernon Co., Wis., men skal ha bytt farmen mot ein bar («saloon owner and operator»).  Hausten 1909 flytte so huslyden til ein farm near Inverness, Hill Co., Mont., men våren 1910 vart Martin og Bertha skilde.  Martin forsvann og vart aldri meir høyrd frå,

 

     ¤¤¤¤¤ (his destiny? - death? - mother Ingeborg Olson (Urness) died Westby/Viroqua, Vernon Co., WI Nov. 14, 1916 - OBITUARY??)

 

     medan Bertha heldt fram med farmingi nær Inverness, Hill Co., Mont. der ho d. 30.11.1925.  Dei fekk to born i lag.

Her er huslyden i Vernon Co., WI i 1905 - mori hans bur i lag med dei: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HY-695S-YH9

 

Merkeleg nok ser eg ikkje noko til dei i Montana korkje i 1910 eller 1920!

 

Men her er dødsfallet hennar Bertha frå Hill Co., MT 1925: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VHC6-DF1

 

frå ancestry.com: https://www.ancestry.com/interactive/5437/47791_1220706333_0488-00422?pid=898717&backurl=https://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv%3D1%26dbid%3D5437%26h%3D898717%26tid%3D%26pid%3D%26usePUB%3Dtrue%26_phsrc%3DNzx20384%26_phstart%3DsuccessSource&treeid=&personid=&hintid=&usePUB=true&_phsrc=Nzx20384&_phstart=successSource&usePUBJs=true&_ga=2.92439261.1581086823.1588866349-1442769865.1532627837

 

Den kanskje beste måten å finna ut meir om denne huslyden på, vil vera å sjå etter OBITUARIES, først for Ingeborg Olson (Urness) frå 1916 (WI) og for Bertha Marie Olson frå 1925 (MT).

 

Eg takkar so mykje på førehand for alle gode tips!

Bare for å være sikker, du har sjekket at han ikke bodde med noen av barna i senere tellinger?

John retired in 1968 when his son took over the farming operations. Since that time, the Olsons spent many years "airstreaming." John served as past president of the state Wally Byam Club and hosted its convention in Havre.

John was confirmed at the Coon Prairie Church in Westby, Wisconsin. He was an active member of the Messiah Lutheran Church in Havre. In addition he was chairman of the Board of Trustees at First Lutheran Church during the building of its education wing.

John was a 50-year member and Past Master of Joplin Masonic Lodge #114, a 50-year Scottish Rite member, a York Rite member, and an Algerian Shrine member. He was also a member of the Sons of Norway.

Hjarteleg takk til Ann Hedvig, Anne og Lars J. for nye interessante innlegg!

 

Då har me fått «på plass» OBITUARYane til både Ingeborg og Bertha, og det som kanskje var mest interessant å lesa, var at Martin er nemnd i mori sin OBITUARY frå 1916.  Men eg tvilar på om han kalla seg for URNESS (sjølv om broren Andrew nytta dette namnet...)...

 

Til Ann Hedvig sitt spørsmål om oppfølgjing av borni for å sjå etter fleire teikn til Martin, so har eg som nemnt ikkje finne att korkje borni eller mor deira i FT1910 eller FT1920, og i FT1930 er i alle fall sonen John åleine i Inverness, MT!

 

Kanskje nokon greier å finna huslyden i FT1910 og/eller FT1920??

 

Kvar Martin kan ha gjort av seg, vil kanskje for alltid vera eit mysterium!?  Eller kan det finnast ein «divorce record» for Martin og Bertha, anten i Hill Co., MT eller i Chouteau Co., MT som Hill vart utskild ifrå i 1911)?  Kanskje dette skilsmålet er nemnt i eit avisoppslag?

 

Ein ny kjempetakk for framifrå bistand med denne huslyden!

Mulig dette kan være Anna Olson i Vernon, Wisconsin hos familien Lars Haakenson og Tonetter Haakenson. Hun er niese, mulig Tonette er hennes tante?

Nb endret: Dette kan ikke være Anna Bertine, i folketellingen står det at begge foreldrene er fra Norge.

Lars, I have details on the divorce and his descendants.  Let me know what you would like to know.  He definitely did not live with either of his children after the divorce. As you noted, post-divorce he is a bit of a mystery.

Innlegg #11:

 

Ei forseinka takk til Randi Elisabeth for innleggi frå mai, som diverre er vorte liggjande i påvente av nye opplysningar som kunne fortelja om lagnaden til Martin Olson...

 

Then a big thank you to L. Landstad for your contribution!  It sounds like you are in possession of some very interesting information about Martin and Bertha and their divorce, and I would very much appreciate learning more details about this event.  My e-mail shows below...

 

It sounds like you as well have a problem figuring out what became of Martin after the divorce.  His mother's obituary from 1916 does suggest he was still living at that time, but it doesn't say where!

 

Another challenge that I have worked on for years, is the question of the marriage for Johannes Olson (Urness) and Ingeborg Andersdotter, Martin Olsons parents.  Do you have any suggestions where and when their marriage took place?

 

Thanks again for any information you can provide about the family!
