Eg har slite i 40 år med å finna lagnaden til denne guten:

 

Christopher O. Lewison, fødd i Crawford Co., WI 20.10.1861, kort etter at foreldri Ole Larsson «Lewison» (1816-1891) og kona Gunnhild Andersdotter (1827-1905?) var komne fram til Amerika.

 

Eg har etter kvart greidd å spora guten fram til FT1930 då han budde hjå svogaren Henry Kelly i Fallon Co., MT: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9RCN-K47

 

men etter den tid er han «borte vekk»!

 

Her er biografien hans so langt som eg har finne opplysningar:

 

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

 

h. Christopher, kjend som Chris O. Lewison, f. i Crawford Co., Wis. 20.10.1861, gifte seg i Crawford Co., Wis. 6.11.1888 med Randi, kjend som Rena C. Hiam, dotter av gardbrukarsonen Christian Christopherson frå Høyeim (1828-1893).  Rena var f. i Crawford Co., Wis. 9.12.1857.  Chris og Rena farma først i Freeman township, Crawford Co., Wis., men flytte i 1891 til Minnesota der dei i 1894 vart farmarar i Saratoga township, Winona Co., Minn.  Sidan flytte dei vidare til Carrolton township, Fillmore Co., Minn. der Chris ei tid var farmarbeidar («farm laborer»). 

 

     ##### (later divorced! – Rena Lewiston 1920 household servant in Preston, Fillmore Co., MN! – died Mar. 28, 1933 in Fillmore Co., MN

 

     ##### (NB 1930: widowed Christian Lewison lived with brother-in-law Henry Kelly at Fertile Prairie, Fallon Co., MT!)

 

     Dei hadde seks born som var fødde før 1900.

 

     ##### (incl.:

            * Levi Lewison, born WI Apr. 16, 1885 – listed 1895/1900

            * Augusta Lewiston, born WI Aug. 1890 – listed 1895/1900/1930

            * Ella Lewiston, born MN Aug. 1893 – listed 1895/1900/1920 – married in Cresco, IA 1921 Fred Kellogg

            * Cliff Lewiston, born MN Nov. 1895 – listed 1895/1900/1920

            * Anna Mae Lewiston, born MN Apr. 1897 – listed 1900/1920/1930

            * Ralph Lewiston, born MN Mar. 13, 1900 – listed 1900/1920/1930 – d. Janesville, WI 2.12.1971)

 

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

 

Og for ordens skyld har eg òg teke med biografien for søster Helen Kelly:

 

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

 

i. Elen Caroline, kjend som Helen C. Lewis, f. i Crawford Co., Wis. 2.9.1863, d. i Marmarth, N.D. 20.2.1929.  Ho gifte seg i Forman, N.D. 20.6.1889 med Henry Lowrie Kelly, f. i La Salle Co., Ill. 13.8.1860.  Han d. i Tacoma, Wash. 1.8.1941. 

 

                      ##### (occupation and place(s) of their residence? – 1893/1900: Kulm, LaMoure Co., ND – 1900 postmaster! – moved 1907 to Marmarth, Billings Co., ND (later part of Slope Co., ND?) – 1910 newspaper editor! – was a

                      newspaper owner and editor several places in North and South Dakota and also lived in Montana (farmed 1930 at Fertile Prairie, Fallon Co., MT) prior to arriving at Tacoma, WA in 1939!)

 

     Dei fekk tre born i lag.

 

     ##### (1900 census: 3 born/2 living:

            * Alexander A. Kelly, born (Harlem), N.D. Nov. 16, 1892 (1900 census says 1890!), died Aug. 31, 1966 Orting, Wash. – 1929: A. A. Kelly of Montline, MT

            * Hazel Ethel Kelly, born N.D. July 15, 1896, died Dec. 9, 1970  Kennewick, Wash. – 1929: Mrs. A. D. Browning of Tacoma, Wash.

            * Albert Lewis Kelly, born N.D. Feb. 12, 1891, died Jan. 1899  N.D.)

 

     ##### (NB: Helen Kelly was survived by her aged brother at Hereford, Tx. and many nephews and nieces in Texas, California, Central North Dakota and Rapid City, S.D.!!)

 

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

 

Det er vel lite som kan leggjast til med omsyn til Helen Kelly og huslyden hennar, men kva med lagnaden til Christopher «Chris» Lewison, òg kjend som Lewiston??

 

Kanskje finst det avisartiklar om denne karen?

 

Eg takkar so mykje på førehand for alle gode tips!
