Johan Evensen HUSEBY's Other Children

We don't know a whole lot more about Johan and Marte's daughters, Eli and Marte, other than they were born in Grue, Hedmark, NOR on 11 Nov 1829 and 20 Jul 1832 respectively. As mentioned above, Marte came to America with her parents in 1853. Eli did not. Their youngest son, Ole (b. 10 Feb 1845) lived to be only two years old before he passed away on 17 Dec 1847.

Their daughter, Johanne (b. 12 Mar 1835, Grue, Hedmark, NOR), got married on 27 Feb 1856 in Winneshiek, IA, to Ove Nicolai Lund (b. 21 Apr 1825, Eidsberg, Østfold, NOR, d. 29 Dec 1889, Canby, Yellow Medicine, MN). They had seven children: Marie Elizabeth (b. 8 Mar 1857) who married Olaf Hoel, Amelia (b. 25 Aug 1859) who married Frank R. Eaton, Henry (b. 23 May 1862), William Seward (b. Mar 1865), John Grant (b. 23 Jun 1868), Anna Maltda (28 Feb 1874) who married John George Koch, and Oscar (b. 23 Jun 1879). Johanne died on 24 Jun 1898 and was also buried in Canby, MN.

Their next youngest daughter, Maren (b. 21 Dec 1837, Grue, Hedmark, NOR), married Gustaf Peter Bergeson (b. 1837 in Norway) on 27 Nov 1858 in Winneshiek, IA. Maren and Gustaf had five children: Marthe Sofie (b. 18 Feb 1860 and died unmarried on 3 Feb 1908), Bernhard Julius (b. 20 Jun 1862), George Martin (b. 16 Apr 1865), Otto Ferdinand (b. 7 Dec 1867), and Clementia Katrinka (b. 10 Oct 1871). Maren passed away on 13 Mar 1923 in Moorhead, Clay, MN.

Martin Johansen HUSEBY was born on 28 Mar 1841 in Grue and came with the family to America in 1853. Sadly he also died fairly young on 8 May 1866 and was buried in the Washington Prairie Cemetery in Springfield, Winneshiek, IA. He was only 25.
