Hanson's of South Dakota (Stencerud)

Posted: 1278553048000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Hanson/Stencerud
I am trying to find information on my grandfather Otto Hanson. He and his brother Leonard immigrated from Norway around 1887+. They settled in Sisseton, South Dakota where Otto married Eva Otto in 1908. I was told by my father Merle Hanson that Otto changed his surname upon arrival to the US from Stencerud to Hanson. My father said Stencerud was the name of their farm in Norway so I don't know for certain that my acestors were named Stencerud or just took it because it identified them to the farm.

There are no records that I can find which identify the parents for Otto or Leonard, Hanson.
Thanks for any help.
