Classification: Query
Surnames: Riste Halvorson Riste Trinrud
Riste Johanson family- Riste is a name from a group of 5 farms in Norway, where people took the name of the farm versus their dad's or mother's patronymic name (Halvorsdatter or Halvorson). Like Brian, I am descended from the same Halvor Kristofferson Riste line, with Christopher Riste marrying Anna Johanson. the Johanson's lived about 5 miles from the Scandinavia Riste farm on County B, on Hwy 49 just outside of Iola, WI. (Google the Iola Old Car Show for info about the town)There are still about 3 cousins on the Johanson side that I know in the Iola and Amherst WI area that have some info. I am rarely out here on Ancestry, but Brian knows where to find me, here in Waupaca. Nancy Christensen Helbach.
