Interesting Finds

  1. John Spriggs (1803-1861) married 4 times before he left England in 1848 with his 4th wife and nine children.
  2. Jacob Christopher Nehls (Nehls-123) was sued over the ownership of a fence he had agreed to split with the previous neighbor when enclosing his property. Jacob lost the lawsuit and was forced to share the fence with the new property owner next to him; Charles Cray.
  3. William Hinde married Mary Proffitt, sister of Alice Proffitt, in Ince, England in 1839.
  4. Matilda Halverson Husser father was Gulbrand Halvorsen Husser (1823 - 1883). He married twice. First wife, the mother of Matilda was Gubior Gulbrandsdatter (1829 - 1901). Second wife was Ingeborg Andersdr born about 1830, had daughter Anne. (Alice Stephens Thomsen)
  5. Christian Anderson Satter was born as Kristian Andersen. His fathers name was officially Anders "Andrew" Andersen. Anders changed their last name to Satter after arriving in the United States, especially in South Dakota.(Alice Stephens Thomsen)
  6. Jacob Nehls was the father of Helen Nehls and Robert Nehls who married, repectively, Albert Sauer and Caroline Sauer, children of Henry Sauer. In 1899, Henry Sauer named Robert Nehls and his son Charles Sauer as administrators of his will, but did not name son Albert, who divorced some time before 1905. Jacob Nehls did name daughter Helen in his 1902 will.
  7. A disagreement over $165: On 17 March 1899 Henry Sauer conveyed 80 acres to his son, Charles Sauer, with the agreement to pay his father $200 each January 1 during his lifetime. After the death of Henry Sauer on 29 October 1900, Robert Nehls, as administrator of the estate, petitioned the court to obtain the pro rata payment of $164.93 for the partial year 1900. Although originally granted, the decision was appealed and overturned on 3 February 1903.[1]
  8. William Pashby (abt.1731-bef.1825) Lived in Yorkshire, England. He had at least fourteen children including three sets of twins. There is an advert in the paper about a champion greyhound he was breeding that would “receive bitches at three Guineas each”. He lived to be 94 years old and died in 1825!
  9. Halvor Olsen-9279 and Marte Gulbrandsdatter has a daughter Karen, then they married afterward and had a son.
  10. The 1870 census for Joseph Varker shows a daughter aged 10, her name is P?dice. (not at all clear). She does not appear on the FS tree, and is not with the family in 1880. No marriage or death has been found for her, and she is not mentioned in Joseph's will dated 1887. She seems to just disappear.
  11. Ann Sparks (1778-1836) was a twin. Circumstantial evidence suggests that she married her 1st cousin.
  12. Dallan had a number of ancestors baptized and/or married in the church in Fet, Akershus, Norway. (Please add any people you find to the image, thanks!) (See: Boel Jacobsdatter)
  13. Nils Christiansen lived in a cottage on the Tunnerud farm. He was not a farmer, however, he was a tailor.
  14. Anders (Andersen) Satter (1823-abt.1892) his wife Maria and son, are featured in "A Norseman finds a home" in the Prairie Tamers of of Miner County, South Dakota" [1] a publication that came out of the WPA Writers' Project.
  15. Maren (Christiansdatter) Westby (1851-1938) arrived in New York 13 April 1878 and gave birth to her third child, Hartvig in Iowa, less than three months later on 6 Jul 1878. She travelled while 6 months pregnant from Norway to Liverpool to New York to Iowa, with her husband and her two daughter ages 1 and 4.
