I am researching my family on my fathers side. His grandfather was Arnt, Arnat, Ardt of Minnesota born in 1893. Arnats mother and father were Anna Brudeskar and Anders, Andrew Anderson Lommeland or Lomlaind. The furthest back I've been able to trace is Anders or Andrew to Mower County in 1857... Possibly arriving in 1853 in Boston. Anders first wife's name was Gunvor Jonsbath whom he had 5 children with. It has presented a real challenge finding any information on both of his wives and his children from his first marriage. If anyone has any information or leads I would greatly appreciate it. His children from his first marriage are Anna Martina, Sarra (Sara or Sarah) Gurine who married Arne Ostrum or Ostrem in 1883, Alexander Severin Julius, Rose, Rosie or Rose Gjertine and Amalie Elisabeth. Children from the the second marriage are Laura E, Lehnard (Lenard), Clara A, Arent (Arnt) J S, and Anna C G.
