That would be great if you could look for that information on John. I believe he was born about 1844, In Norway. I have evidence the family was connected to Hennepin and Renville Counties, in MN, at one point in time. John Lomeland married Bertha Ramsland. The Ramsland's left quite a large footprint in the Renville County area. It is so strange in that I have been able to compile a substantial history on the Ramsland's and am unable to go anywhere with the Lomeland side. Perhaps, again, the spelling/name changing does have something to do with it? Thanks for your help!
