Looking for Brandt and Halerstad Ancestors

Posted: 1258397624000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Brandt, Halerstad
I have traced my ancestors back to Norway but I cannot find where in Norway they are from and so I can't trace them back much farther. Here is the information I have so far, any help on tracking them down would be very much appreciated.

Hendrick (May go by Henry) Brandt.
Born: Sep 1 1835 in Norway
Died: Oct 9 1911 in Watertown, Middlesex, Massachusetts, USA
Immigrated about 1856

In the U.S. he married Ellen Maria Newcomb who was from Wellfleet, Massachusetts.

Father: Christian F. Brandt
Born: about 1815 (may be in Norway but Brandt is a German name)
Died: Unknown

Mother: Gisiel Halerstad
Born: about 1817 in Norway
Died: Unknown

Christian and Gisiel were probably married about 1834.
