[#5324] Hans Gudmundsen from Aurskog to Minnesota USA1860'

Recommended Posts

Gjest Janet Thompson

While looking at the Census of 1865 posted by the University of Tromso, I found record of a Hans Gudmundsen and his family that lived at Aurskog, Municipality 0224 and the name of domicile is Ruud. I believe Hans is my Great Great Grandfather. The Census lists him as living with husfader Gudmund Hansen, Husmoder Johanne Gudbrandsen, and other brothers (Gudbrand and Martin) and a sister (Anne). Hans was born in 1845 at Urskaug as was husfader and the other children. Johanne Gudbrandsen was born at Fedt.I know Hans returned to Norway to visit family on at least one occassion. However, prior to reading the 1865 census, memories of names in Norway had faded. I am very interested in learning more about the community of Aurskog and if anyone would know where the Ruud domicile was/is. I would like to know if there are church/other records I could check to go back beyond Gudmund Hansen and make a link to the 1801 census.I know Hans married Caroline Christiansdatter in Minnesota, U.S.A. in 1869. She and her parents (Christen Jorgenson and Gunhild Hansdatter lived in Rochester, Minnesota) Caroline was born Hoelands Prastagjeld, Norway in 1846. Is this the same community at Urskaug?I hope someone will respond. I am sorry I only write and speak American.Janet

Janet,Aurskog and Høland are now merged into one municipality, part of Akershus county and located north-east of Oslo. For most rural districts in Norway, there are books that present farm history and appurtenant family lists (bygdebøker), and this can be a valuable supplement to the church records (kirkebøker). If you visit www.slektsbiblioteket.com, choose Lookup service and then search for Aurskog and Høland respectively, you might get help from lookup volunteers.Rune

This morning when I checked the message board I could hardly believe my eyes! I have been searching, on and off, for nearly 20 years to find where Hans Gudmundsen had come from and what family he had left behind. My mother is 89 years old and has only childhood memories of him. He died in 1927 when she was 15 years old. We are all so delighted that could help us. I know he is our Hans as the birth date is an exact match.Are you connected in some way to someone in that family? I know nothing about the place he is from other than what I have seen on the Web Page for Aurskog. Would you be able to share or suggest someone who could help me learn more of the history of the community? Would anyone in Norway be interested in knowing what became of Hans? Perhaps there are living relatives still nearby that might have some old pictures?Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart. The internet is a marvelous thing!

I am uncertain if I understand you correctly about the wife of Hans Gudmundson. You say Hans married 1869 in Minnesota to Caroline Christiansdatter, born in Høland 1846, and that her parents (Christen Jørgenson and Gunhild Hansdatter) lived in Rochester, Minnesota.My question is: did the parents of Caroline live in Minnesota, or is this just the names of her parents? Might she have said that her parents were: Christen Jørgensen and Gunhild Hansdatter, when she married? An answer on this question is crucial for the possible identification of her in Høland.Anyhow, I suppose Caroline Christiansdatter in the cencus 1865 lived as a servant on Nordre (Northern) Bunes in Hemnes in Høland, 19 years old. In 1867 she emmigrated, from Bunes to America, according to the church register.Hilsen Odd.

Thank you for responding to my posting. I have found record of Hans and Caroline's wedding at Rochester, Minnesota. That record lists her parents as Christen Jorgenson and Gunhild Hansdatter. Hans, Caroline, Christen and Gunhild were all living in Minnesota in 1869. I do not know what year any of them came to America. Caroline's Obituary says she was born at Hoelands Prastagjeld. I do not know where her parents were born. Is Nordre Brunes in Hemnes a farm? Would this place be near enough to the Ruud domicle that they might have known each other before coming to America? I do not know where Carolines parents died. They might have returned to Norway as I find no record of them in Minnesota in later years.Again, thank you. I look forward to hearing from you.Janet

I think Berit may have come up with the right Caroline Christiansdatter, namely the one who was born at Skarrebol in Hemnes in Høland on 18 April 1846. This is however in conflict with your statement that your Caroline's parents lived in Rochester, Minnesota, at the time of Caroline's wedding, in 1869.The parents of Caroline Christiansdatter, born on Skarrebol in Høland 1846, was Christian Jørgensen Skarrebol, born 1794, died on Skarrebol 1864(!), and Gunhild Hansdatter, born 1802, died on Østreng in Høland 1884.I have earlier suggested that Caroline's parents was not living in Rochester in 1869, it is just stated that her parents name are so and so. But if it is absolutely clear that her parents were in Rochester in 1869, then this Caroline cannot be identical with the Caroline born on Skarrebol in 1846.The family of Caroline from Skarrebol may be traced far back in time in Høland, her ancestors belonged to wellknown families.Hilsen Odd.

Hello,I have not been able to answer my messages for some time. I apologize for the delay.I have gone back to my records and have found that Caroline's obiturary, which is on file at the Historical Society at Kandiyohi County, Willmar, Minnesota, lists her birth as April 18, 1846. It says her parents are Christen Jorgenson and Gunhild Hans Datter Skaarebol. It says she was 21 years when she cam to the U.S.A. from Hoelands Prastegjeld, Norway. She died June 15, 1907 at Willmar, Minnesota.I think I will have to drive to Rochester,Minnesota and look at those records again. Maybe I read them wrong and as Odd suggests, perhaps Christen and Gunhild never were in America. Maybe she just lists them as her parents and I assumed they were here too. I do know that there was an infestation of Grasshoppers here in Minnesota around 1875. I know, because of the grasshoppers and poor crops, Hans and Caroline went back to Norway, taking their children with them and stayed for a period of 9 months. Maybe if Chriten and Gunhild were here, they might have returned to Norway with Hans and Caroline and never came back to Minnesota. My mother, who is 88 does not remember anyone talking about anyone else from Norway other than Caroline and Hans. If they did live here in Minnesota, no one remembers or knows where they settled. My only link is to the marriage record of Caroline and Hans at Rochester, Mn. Do the church records show of people leaving and then returning after an absence?

Christian had been dead for 3 years when Caroline went to America the first time. You must have assumed her parents went with her.

It is about ten years ago that I visited Rochester and looked at the old marriage books. Rochester is about a 2 1/2 hour drive from my home so I am thinking I will investigate to see if they will send me a photo copy of the papers. As I recall, that service wasn't available when I was there,so I couldn't get a copy. Times have changed and now everybody has a copy machine, or so it seems. Is there any information on the Skarrebol farm? Is the place that Gunhild died near Hoeland Parish?

All of the farms are in the same area. I thougt perhaps you had recieved informations from Inger-Lise Haga concerning the history and information of the community. She offered to do it and gave you her e-mailadress. Maybe you should contact Inger-Lise.
