In need of help with Norwegian translation

+4 votes
I just uploaded photo of a Norwegian newspaper article I found and could use some help with content. Have been entering text in google translate but missing a lot. What I think it says about Cornelius, is that he and a brother went to visit a brother in Stavanger Norway (1953).

If this correct, is Bertine the brother in Norway? Who are John Johnsen and Hartvig Knudsen?  And what do the #'s 113, 45, and 51 refer to?  Any idea why their trip would be significant enough to get mentioned in this article?

What I know: Cornelius was a Lutheran Pastor, born in Norway, was in Alaska in 1920, and lived in Wisconsin for many years until his death.

Thank you for any help you can provide :D

Not letting me enter ID in proper slot below, so here is link (I hope) for Cornelius Malmin

Tusen takk, Oddvar.  Your translation confirms the few things I thought I knew about Cornelius and provides new information to help build a tree branch for his family. Never would have found siblings with them all using different surnames. Forever grateful, Patricia
