To America in 1854: Peder Abrahamsen Klovholt with wife and child

+3 votes
I've got this family who emigrated from Norway in 1854: Peder Abrahamsen Klovholt born 25 May 1828, wife Mette Lovise Andersdatter born 3 May 1827, their child Karethe Martine Pedersdatter born 29 July 1853. They are quite close relatives of mine, and I have no idea where they went, although many from here about ended up in Wisconsin.

Mette Lovise's parents Anders Hansen and Karen Dortea Pedersdatter went to America earlier the same year, and may well be found at the same place.

Wow. Thank you very much! That sure looks a lot like them. I suppose that Karete may have died. Their child Katharine is born about 1856 in Michigan.

Polk County sounds very familiar, I bet there are others of "my" people there.
Thanks, Leif. Hope it helps.
