Bjørnør, Osen, Angen farm 8a, parents of orphaned Anna Margret b. 1871

Classification: Query
In 1869 and 1870, this family came to Douglas county Minnesota, except for a sister, who stayed in Norway. It is her information I am searching for, name, marriage, children. She had a child named Anna Margret Evensen or Iversen or Eversen as she was variously called in Minnesota.

She is not with the family on the 1865 Norway census.

Census year: 1865
Municipality: Roan
Municipality number: 1632
Name of domicile: Angen
Number of persons in this domicile: 7


Name Family status Marital status Occupation Birth year Place of birth Ethnicity
Johan Johansen Husfader g Gaardbr. Selveier 1814 Throndhjem
Marith Johansdatter hans Kone g 1816 Bynæs Prgj.
Jens Johansen deres Søn ug hjelper Faderen med Gaardsbruget 1849 Bjørnørs Prgj.
Karen Johansdatter deres Datter ug 1851 Bjørnørs Prgj.
Olaus Johansen deres Søn ug 1854 Bjørnørs Prgj.
Karl Johansen deres Søn ug 1857 Bjørnørs Prgj.
Ole Johansen deres Søn ug 1859 Bjørnørs Prgj.

The sister who stayed in Norway must be out working or away from home on the 1865 census. All those in the census went to Minnesota.
The farm Angen is 8a in Osen local parish, Bjørnør. Is there anything about this family in the bygdebok?

Anyway, the sister from Angen married and had at least one daughter. Here is her birthdate on her death information:
Date of Birth: 24 Sep 1871
Place of Birth: OUT OF STATE
Mother Maiden Name: NOT KNOWN
certid# 1957-MN-004264
Date of Death: 11 Mar 1957
County of Death: DOUGLAS county, MInnesota

Anna Margret came over to Minnesota at about age 9, as an orphan? Her uncle Carl Johansen Angen had gone back to Norway to get her. So I think the oldest sister of the Angen family must have died?

I would like to find Anna Margret Iverson/Evensen, or whatever on the census of 1875 or somewhere, but I don't know her parent's names.

Thanks for any help - hope this is understandable.
