Bruce, is the surname for the family HODALEN, with BAKOS being Gjertrud's maiden surname?

Did the family change its surname to Johnson?

Do you need census information or birth/death dates or what--exactly what is the objective of your query?


You are correct with the surnames. Ole changed his name to Johnson as did some of the other children. One of the children was married and changed their name to Dahl. I don't know what John & Gjertrud did with their name. I can't find out when they died, I am pretty certain it was in the Osseo/ Strum area. I also can't find them in the census.

I can give you more info if you need it.

Thanks, Bruce
