Christian Tanberg came to America (his wife was Karen ) . When she died in the 1870's he married her sister, Johanna, who had come to America. A third sister,
Anne Mathea Andersdotter also came to America with her two daughters, Inga Marie, born 1878 and Anne Margrethe , born 1879. Mathea's husband came ca
1881. In 1882, they had a son, Wilhelm. After that I cannot find Mathea's husband or children. Mathea's husband was Andreas Martenson . It is noted in the Little
Bethany church records that Wilhelm was confirmed there about 1898 or b/4.
On the Clay county census for 1900 ( ?), an Andreas was a lodger , widower, living with Andrew Tanberg's. By 1905, he married Emma Leonhardt , from Barnesville,
who had several children. Emma and Andreas had two daughters, adding to the family. They were Sophie (died in California)ca 1977 and Francis (who died in Moorhead.)
I am trying to find where Anne Mathea died and where her two daughters, Inga and Anne were raised. Also whether I have the correct Andreas Martinson.
The Andreas or Andrew that was married to Emma Leonhardt died July 10, 1928 in Clay County and I believe buried in Moorhead. Andrew's parents were Martin Mikkelson and Ingeborg Evensdatter (Norway). He was born in 1850. Emma married again to Herman Brandt who died in 1931.
Thank you for reading and any help.
