Ben Olson from Norway

Posted: 1366632466000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Graabergsven, Olson, Olsen

On August 17th 1923 Ben Olson (born May 8th 1888 in Elverum, Hedmark, Norway) boarded the SS Calypso from Oslo, Norway to Newcastle, UK. Then on August 26th he boarded the RMS Andania (Cunard Line) to Québec City, Canada. On his passenger form he states that he's planning to meet his brother, Paul Olson, at the Montreal Transit Station and that he's planning to stay in Canada to farm. After this we don't know what happened to him.

He first went to the US in June 1907 under the name Bernt Graabergsven. He came back to Norway in January 1920, and in some records he's shown as Bernt Olsen, but we believe he went under the name Ben Olson in America.

Any information would be really appreciated.
