HENRICKS (HENDRIKSON) Peder Myre b. 11/07/1843

Classification: Query
Surnames: Henricks, Hendrikson, Erlandsen, Olsdatter, Johansdatter,Nielfen, Hansdatter
I am seeking geneological information and looking to find distant relatives in Norway. My gr grandfather Peder Myre Henricks (name change in U.S.A.) emigrated between 1866 and 1869 first to the USA and then to Canada in 1903. His parents were Hendrik Erlandsen and Oline Olsdatter, one document says he was born in Rienfjord and another says Brono. He was married to Inger Hermina Johansdatter in 1865. I believe her parents were Johan Nielfen and Ane Hansdatter. On the documents I have (which I have been told are baptismal certificates) in front of their names is the abbreviation, "No" followed by a number. For P.M. the it reads "No:67" and for Inger it reads "No:83".

P.M. returned to Norway in 1922 for a private audience with King Haakon where he was made a Knight of the Order of St Olaf for his work as Norwegian Vice Consul in Canada assisting the Norwegian immigrants to Canada.

I believe that P.M. may have had some half brothers/sisters who stayed in Norway, but I have no way of confirming this.

If anyone can help me advance further back in the family tree, knows anything more about P.M., or may be able to lead me to distant relatives it would be greatly appreciated.
