BORN TO: Peder Knutsen & Sicil Pedersdatter Aspehaug in Oier, Oppland, Norway
MARRIED TO: Sigrid Amundsdatter on July 20, 1873 in Norway
Lived with Iver Skansgaard’s
BROTHER TO: Anne Pedersdatter (Aspehaug) Skansgaard

Mahlum Family Amund Pederson (Mæhlum) was born March 24, 1848 in Øyer, Norway. Aspehaug was the original name of his birthplace. Aspehaug was tenant's place belonging to the farm, Rindalseje ("eje" means "belonging to"). To this day, the farm is named "Oshhaug" situated to the south of Rindal. Amund Pederson (changed to Mæhlum) had three brothers and three sisters. Some of them settled in Østerdahlen Valley. Their descendants still use the family name - Aspehaug. Amund's brother, Knut Pederson (changed his name to Hasli) bought the Aspehaug farm. One of his sons, Amund Hasli had two children, Anna Marie (Gillebo) and Knut Hasli. Knut is still living on his father's farm at Øyer. Note: Since this was written, Knut Hasli has died. (Dec 25, 1993) Ed and I visited both Anna and Knut in July, 1984. Had a very interesting visit but much too short a time. Anna Gillebo told us about her cousins in North Dakota. Mrs. Julian (Ardys) Harstad lives at Cummings, North Dakota and Ingvald Skansgaard at Twin Valley, Minnesota. There are many descendants living throughout the west. Hope we get to meet them sometime in the future.
Amund Pederson (Mahlum) came to Mæhlumsveen to work as a tenent in the 1860's. The Mæhlum family who owned Mæhlumsveen were originally from Øyer, and were friends of Amund. Their descendants still own and live on this farm. It's considered a very large farm in Norway. It would be between 20 and 40 acres in the U.S. and not considered a large farm here. They used modern farm equipment and still have tenants to help with the farm work. Amund and Emjør Østensen were also tenants at Mæhlumsveen in the 1860's. They had a young daughter, Sigrid, who married Amund Pederson (Mæhlum) on July 20, 1873 at the age of 23. They were married in the Stave Kirke in Ringbu, Norway. We were in Ringbu on a Sunday which was a special day commemorating St. Olaf. We attended the service on Sunday night and there was also a Baptism Service, all in Norwegian. The songs were familiar so we were able to join in the singing and also follow the service.
Amund and Sigrid had nine children in the family, eight of them were born in Norway. A son, Bert, was born in America. Son, Peder Anton, their oldest child, worked with them at Mæhlumsveen. A daughter, Sina, was a baby-sitter for the Mæhlum family. No doubt, the younger children, Martha, Anna, and Kristian also had to help with the work. Peder was baptized and confirmed by his grandfather, Peder Knudsen Rindalseje, who was a Lay Minister. He was a very tall man.
Mæhlumsveen is located on a hillside overlooking the beautiful, green and fertile valley, Gudbrandsdahlen, and the quaint town of Ringbu. The view was breathtaking, and we wondered why anyone would leave and immigrate to America. We were told, as tenants there was absolutely no future, and they were hungry people. Many Norwegians left Norway at this very time for this very reason. All of Sigrid's family - parents, four sisters and a brother eventually immigrated to America. I don't know if any of Amund's brothers or sisters came but several of the their children came to America.
Amund and Sigrid decided to immigrate to America. With a prayer in their hearts, with much hope and determination to have a better life for their children, they left their homeland, Norway, in 1888 and sailed for America, "The Land of the Free". After weeks on the ocean they finally reached Ellis Island. It must have been frightening for them, not being able to speak or understand the English language in a new country. I understand the immigrants who arrived in New York were the victims of many tricks, jokes and even thievery. But in spite of all this, it was exciting and they never lost sight of their hopes for liberty, freedom and the pursuit of happiness in this new country which was to be their home. It would be interesting to know of their experiences on the trip from New York to Belgrade, Minnesota, where they settled on a farm. They must have had several more days of anxiety before they arrived in Belgrade. Peder was 15 years; Sina, 13 years; Martha, 11 years; Anna, 8 years; Kristian (Chris), 5 years; Ole, 3 years (no record) but it could be possible he changed his name to Oscar; Karen, 1 year (no further record); and Anton, 1 year. A son, Bert, was born in America October 1, 1894. Amund and Sigrid left Belgrade in the late 1890's and moved to a farm near their son, Peder, who had homesteaded near Hankinson, North Dakota. From there, they moved to Blaisdell, North Dakota. Sigrid moved to an "Old People's Home" near there in the 1920's, where she lived until her death December 19, 1936.
Amund became a "Happy Wanderer" visiting his children until his death in 1930.
He was buried at the Aspelund Lutheran Church cemetery in Flom, Minnesota. Sigrid may also be buried there. We shall always have a very deep feeling of respect, love and honor for these immigrants who were so brave and had so much courage to begin a new life in America.

John Olsen Nysetvold was born April 15, 1850 at Tydal, Sor Trondelag, Norway. He was reared on the home farm in Norway and there he received his education in the local schools.
He helped his father operate the farm and so acquired a practical training that was a great benefit to him in America. In 1872 John Nysetvold immigrated, first going to lowa where he worked for two of his uncles almost a year, then on to Wisconsin where he worked six years lumbering. By now he had enough capital to set himself up in farming, and in 1878 he came to Norman County, Minnesota.
Here he homesteaded 160 acres in section 32, Flom Township, where he lived the rest of his life. To break up the land he used oxen, which served his purpose for fourteen years. These were also used to haul his grain thirty miles to the nearest market.
Soon he began building first house, a small frame structure fourteen by sixteen feet, roofed with pieces of sod. The other farm buildings were of logs, but as time went by he added to the farm home and barn — the former becoming an eight room house with a hall.
He was a grain farmer; raising mostly wheat and had some graded stock.
In 1883, John was united in marriage to Guri Stuedahl, who was born in Tydal, Norway, April 22, 1857.
They were charter members of the Norwegian Lutheran Church, Aspelund, at Flom and he served as trustee many years.
He helped organize the school district and was its clerk for over thirty years.
He was the first township clerk of the Flom Township board.
Before Flom had a designated post office the Nysetvold home was used as a post office for a period of time. Mrs. Nysetvold carded and spun her own wool and knit for her children and later stockings, mittens and scarves for the grandchildren. John died in 1929, Guri in 1935.
There were four children born to this union: Ingeborg, (Belle) the only daughter, born in 1883, took over where her mother left off and was house keeper for her two brothers who never married, but continued the farm after their father died. Belle served many years as church organist. One Sunday a year an offering was taken to pay the organist. She was a competent seamstress and sewed for many friends. She had flocks of chickens and a large garden, and was a wonderful cook. She died in 1961.
Henry, born in 1890, and Johan (Johnny), born in 1892, were a team - working together, using and updating the good farming methods of the father. They, too, were active in community and church. Johnny died in 1964; Henry sold the farm to a relative and moved into Twin Valley where he lived until he died in 1973.

Came from the Riishovd Farm in Hol, Hallingdal, Norway in 1883. They first settled in Grand Forks, North Dakota and came to Flom Township later.
Emigrated to USA in 1885.
"It is unknown where Rishovd learned rosemåling, but his style was built on the tradition after Embrik H. and Nils H. Bæra from Ål, a tradition that in Hol was continued by Torstein O.Sand and Pål O. Grøt.
Later came Numedalflowers and Tele(mark) roses into his painting. From the mid 1800s came the yellowbrown oak imitation more and more in fashion, and Rishovd sometimes used this as cabinet
color round the flower painted fillings. There are many works by Rishovd both in Hol and Sogn (particularly in Aurland). He painted several room interiors where the decor usually is limited to the doors and cabinets, among the best is the wall and ceiling decoron Halvorgard in Hol, from 1852.
Public works: Represented in Norsk Folkemuseum; Historisk Museum in Bergen; Drammens Museum; Hol bygdemuseum."

He grew up in Norway and was also in the Military service in Norway. While he was in the service, his family emigrated from Norway to America. He came to America in 1887. Since his parents had already settled in Walworth Township, he decided to go there. He worked for Lars Hitterdal as a farm laborer. He sent for Guri in Norway and she joined him the following year. They built a small log house on his father’s farm where they lived for a few years. He also continued to work for Lars Hitterdal. Each weekend he walked to and from the Hitterdal farm which was a distance of about 16 miles. Guri worked for Arne & Gunhild Evans of Ulen, Minnesota which was 10 miles from home. As pay, Guri received a cow which was the start of Guri and Anker’s dairy herd. They worked har and saved up money and in 1891 they were able to buy a quarter section of land that was next to his parent’s land for $3 per acre.
Anker died on his farm in 1933.

VETERAN

He grew up on the farm and was baptized and confirmed in the Norwegian language at Aspelund Lutheran Church. He attended school in District No. 35 located two miles from his home.
Along with the good times on the farm came hard work. Wood was used for fuel and had to be hauled for miles. Eddie, his Dad and a brother would drive to White Earth or Poplar Grove, Northwest of Waubun, Minnesota with two teams to get the fuel. They would cut down the trees, trim them, cut them and load them on the sleigh and go home again the same day. After they got the wood home, it had to be sawed, and split with an ax so it would fit into the cook stove and wood heater.
After harvest in the fall, Eddie would haul a load of wheat to the Faith Mill and trade it for flour. Sometimes he would drive to the Mill at Richwood and get the flour there. He would get enough flour to last until the next harvest.
He farmed with his Dad and brothers until his marriage, taking time out to go into the army during WWI.
Ed & Clara bought some land not far from his folks, built their home, planted trees and began farming. All the work was done by horses until tractors came into use.
In 1945, the Sandens moved to Detroit Lakes. He then first worked for the Madison Silo Co. in the summers and the Addison Miller Ice Co. in the winter. Later he worked at Swift & Co. until his retirement in 1959.

MARRIED TO: Erland Hanssen Skansgaard in Sodørp Parish of Nord Fron, Oppland, Norway on November 27, 1851
SONS: Iver, Hans, Amund (also known as Edward Holmer) & Nils (also known as John Ring)

Erland Hansson Kjorstadmoen was born in Sodorp, Nord Fron, Oppland, Norway to Hans Hansen and Anne Jacobsdatter on December 4, 1827. He was baptized and confirmed in Norway. He married Beret Nielsdatter Loften on November 27, 1851. Beret was the daughter of Niels Erichsen and Ragnil Thronsdatter. She was born in 1825 in Sodorp, Nor Fron, Oppland, Norway. She had the following siblings: Johannes, Kari, Thore, Mari, Mari and Erik Nielsen Loften. Four sons were born to Erland and Beret: Iver, (see Iver and Anne Skansgaard) Hans, (see Hans and Anne Skansgaard) Amund Niels The family is found living on the Skansgaard farm in the 1865 census of Norway and the 1875 census of Norway. Skansgaard was a small farm under Kjorstad in Sor-Fron. It was a husmannsplass. It was named Skansgaard when a husman came back from a war and named it so. The name is not rooted in farm names in Fron. Loften was a husmannsplassar in Nord-Fron. Not much is known about Amund and Niels. Amund was born on January 10, 1859 and Niels was born on October 11, 1854. Amund emigrated from Bergen, Norway on March 24, 1880 on the Stjerne Line. His place of residence was given as Haus. The day before, on March 23, 1880, his brother Niels emigrated from Bergen, Norway on the Inman Line. His place of residence was given as Haus. It is not known if the brothers were in this area when they came here. We do know that they lived on the West Coast, probably in Washington State. Amund changed his name to Edward Holmer and Niels changed his name to John Ring. It is known that Amund/Edward worked on “Bergen’s banen” in Norway in 1880. The road was built at that time from Bergen to Voss. Amund/Edward also used the name A.E. Holm. He stated in one letter to his parents that he had changed his name because it was hard for people to pronounce Skansgaard. Both men were known to have been in the Salt Lake City, Utah area at the turn of the century. One letter was received from Niels/John that was written on April 29, 1894 from a hospital in Salt Lake City. He talks of being very sick and about going to San Francisco to receive treatment from a Chinese doctor. That letter he signed Neils Erlandson. Amund/Edward died in 1936 in Washington State it is presumed. A letter was received from the Royal Norwegian Consulate in Seattle, Washington. It was to do with an estate that was left after his death. Erland and Beret emigrated from Oslo, Norway on April 25, 1884 on the Rollo. Their passage was prepaid, more than likely by one of their sons who were already all in America. Their place of residence was S. Fron and Storback was their destination in America. They landed in Quebec, Canada in May of 1884. Starbuck, Minnesota is where they first went to when they arrived here. His contract #16575 with Allan Brothers & Co. for his and Beret’s passage, reads as follows: Erland Hansen has received of the undersigned, (against payment of passage-money, including landing money in Quebec, Boston, Halifax, Portland or Baltimore, as specified) Through ticket #16575 for 2 adults to be forwarded to Starbuck, Minn. in the following manner: 1. By Steam-Ship to Hull, where the separate Steam-Ship ticket is to be given up; 2. By Railway to Liverpool; 3. By Steam-Ship to Quebec, Boston, Halifax, Portland or Baltimore; 4. By Railway to destination. During the whole journey hence to America, passengers will be supplied with good and sufficient food as well as with suitable lodging; and this arrangement stands equally good in the event of any unavoidable delay or accident interrupting the journey, which in that case will be continued as soon as possible in a satisfactory manner. Passengers must attach a full and plain address to each of their luggage packages. 10 Cubic feet Luggage per Steam Ship and 100 pds per. Railway free for each passenger above 12 years old; for children between 1 and 12 years of age, half the quantity. On arriving in England, passengers must not hasten to go on shore, but wait until they are fetched by our Correspondents’ people, who will make themselves known by showing a list of all the Passenger’s names. Passengers should not have any dealings with Interpreters. Tins and bedding should be bought in Norway or in Liverpool. On arriving at America, Passengers must be careful not to let themselves be persuaded to take Lake-Steamer tickets instead of their railway tickets. Passengers should hold to this contract and show it as often as they have occasion, but not give it up until they arrive at their destination. A deposit of 20,000 Norwegian Kroner has been made to the Norwegian Government as security for due fulfillment of this contract. E. H. Skansgaard made his Declaration of his intention to become a citizen in Pope County of Minnesota. He could not write, so he signed with an X and it was witnessed by A.L. Brevig. We do not know how long they stayed in the Starbuck area. When they came to Flom Township, they lived in Section 27 on a farm. Beret died May 24, 1898 and Erland died November 29, 1909. They are both buried in Aspelund Lutheran Church Cemetery.

In 1919, the year after he was confirmed, he was elected secretary of the congregation. He was the youngest person to ever hold that post and was selected because he was one of the few members able to write the minutes of the church council in Norwegian. Edgar was an excellent singer and sang in the church choir for many years. He was also a member of the male quartet, and was memorial secretary for 25 years.
After his marriage to Mabel, they made their home on their farm on the south edge of Flom. Edgar was a life-long farmer, retiring in 1964. He also had an insurance agency which he operated until 1984, and he continued to live in his farm home after his retirement until his health failed.

He was very active in working for the coming of REA, and he spent much time and traveled many miles working for this goal. He also served on the Flom School Board and was clerk. Edgar’s hobbies were playing the organ and violin and he was a good craftsman, making many beautiful things from wood. He was also an avid fisherman, spending many hours at his lake home.

Bert and Esther Albertson were my aunt and uncle as well as Alvina and Oscar Morck with Sanford and Eugene Albertson were my first cousins. My mother was Uncle Bert's youngest sister, Myrtle Farmer. I love the memories of summertimes we got to spend with our relatives for so many years. I was born at the ending of depression, near Ada, Mn. as my father had been laid off from his job and the family moved up to Grandma Albertsons. Then Dad got a job for Ed Carmen and on that farm I was born and we moved back to Waterloo,IA when I was 4 months old. The last time I was in Flom was the family reunion of 1995 and it was so good to see all who attended. Now there are fewer and fewer of our generation left, but our family history keeps getting passed down to the younger ones so we continue to thrive. Thank you for this site and the opportunity for memories to be posted.

Looking for relatives to Nils Ekvall.
I found relatives to my wife and I am trying to trace family belonging to EKVALL, NILS 1866 9/24/1947
He was born 24 sept. 1866 and was living in Stiby, Sweden and via Denmark leaving to US.

Nils Olsson Ekvall.
Father Ola Andersson Ekvall.
Mother Thöre Grensdotter.
(from original books of church in Sweden)

I´ve got lots of information from his relations in Sweden and I´m ready to give these to any relatives who are interested.
Will you please help me to get contact with relatives in US to Nils Ekvall.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
