My Amazing Great Grandparents # 8 - 15
My research began with a fascinating great grandparent responsible for granting us the Jelle name after travelling from Norway in 1882 so why not pay tribute to all of my great grandparents?
Great grandma Inger has a really short life passing from TB at age 30. She was from Malselv, troms, Norway and they likely met on the ship. Her legacy was three healthy sons.
Martin as he was referred to was another ancestor who traveled from Denmark to the US with his whole family. he farmed a fraction on the MN Sd border for years and years.
Victor is yet another emigrant ancestor who came from Hogsby and Gotteborg to New York. He ran his own hamburger shop in El Campo, TX
Bertha was mother of eight kids with Victor.
Johnnie was a remarkable widow raising eight children mostly by herself after husband J. T. was murdered.
