I am researching my family history. They came from Hoydalsmo,
Laardal,Telemark. My great, grand father was born on Hovden farm,
Hoydalsmo - Easton Osmundson parents Osmund Osmundson and Signe
Ostensdatter born 23 July 1836. Came to America in 1862 along with his
sister Gunnild and Gro Torstensen.

Easton and Gro settled in Faribault County, Minnesota and Gunnild
settled in Renville County, Mn.

Easton had a sister, Signe who married Even Thorkelsen 1852, died in
1866 had Child by the names of Torkel, b 1853: Osmund, b 1855: Thor b
1857: Lars b 1861: Nils b 1866.

I have found Torkel on the 1900 census at Ofte- married to Liv
Halversdatter with children Signe b 1882: Ualon b 1879: Eivend b 1887:
Olav b 1894: Tora b 1891 also Asmund brother b 1855 was living with

On the 1900 Census I also found Aasmund living at Forstael b 1826: son
Aasmund b 1861: Olav b 1869: Anne b 1875.

Does anyone know of these family members? There has to be family there
- can anyone put me intouch with them?

Many Thanks,
