Volden in Harmony

Classification: Query
Surnames: Volden
I am looking for information on Knute Johanneson Galdivolden [b. 1826 Norway] & Kari Nilsdatter [b. 1832 Norway and their children Johannes [b. 1857], Kari [b. 1860] and Nils [b. 1869 d.1948].

Johannes immigrated about 1877 to Vernon County, WI, Kari [b. 1860]immigrated about 1878 and Knute, Kari, & Nils immigrated about 1879.

I have located the family in the 1880 census as JOHNSON in Harmony, Vernon Cnty, WI.

Kari Knudson [b. 1860] marries the widower Torgor Toreson, May 1882. I am only able to locate her in the 1910 census in Harmony where she is a widow with children: Martin 22; Tille 19, Gonald 16 & Caroline 14.

John is located in the 1900 Sterling, Vernon Cnty census with wife Marriet and children: Knute 12; Amanda 10, August 7, Ole 4, Julias 2, & Nels 5/12. John is also located in 1930 with Morris' [Knute?] 32 family. I'm told at one time the family lived in the De Soto area.

In 1894 Nils [b. 1869 d. 1948] married Anna [Skuekveen] Quain [b. 1874 d. 1950]. They are found in the 1900 census with Caroline 4 & Olga 1; 1910 census with Caroline 14, Olga 11, Martha 9, Norman 6, May 4 & Gladys 2; and in 1930 they are living with Norman 26 & wife Lucine & grandson James 1, Nils' children living with Norman are Evelyn 16, Kenneth 15, Hilda 12.

I am looking for when and where Knute, Kari, John & Marriet Volden and Kari & Torgor Toreson died. I would also be interested in knowing where they are buried. What was John's wife's maiden name? If any additional information is available, I would also be interested in that.

Thank you
West Fargo, ND
