EVAN JOHNSON AND INGABORG FLANN

According to the Obituary I have in my scrapbook, Grandpa Johnson was born in Rennebu, Norway on September 27, 1862 and came to America in 1885. Grandmother Ingeborg was born in Tronheim, Norway on September 19, 1871 and came to this country a short time later. They were married at Rice Lake, Wisconsin.
Grandfather worked in the woods many years at logging camps. I remember him as a filer in the saw mill at Rice Lake. They also spent some years at Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. They are buried in the Nora Cemetery in Rice Lake, Wisconsin.

GRANDPA JOHNSON'S PARENTS

JENS YTTERHUS, Born 10-20-1824, Died 05-24-1908, Rennebu, Norway
INGABORG SUNDSET, Born 11-27-1825, Died 01-16-1906, Rennebu, Norway

Grandpa did change his name from Ytterhus to Johnson. His nephew (our mother's cousin) John Ytterhus lived in Chicago. He and his wife Inga are both dead now, but their daughter lives there and her brother Arthur lives in Boston, I think. They have contact with relatives in Norway. Mildred's address is MILDRED HOLLAND, 2411 W. Fitch Ave., Chicago, IL 60645, Tel. 312-338-4681.
I've never heard of Grandma's name being Halvorson. I have her name as Ingaborg Randina Yarnaa Flann. I went to the cemetary today (May 1999) and Grandma's marker just says "MOTHER INGABORG" with her birth and death. Her father's name was Halvor, but that would make her name Halvorsdatter in Norway - not Halvorson.
