The Vraa's that I knew of were from Houston County area, but I don't know where they all were. Anything would help. Thanks

What happened as far as I can tell is Gjermund Nerison moved to the USA and changed the Family name to reflect where they came from.

Everyone did except my Great Grandfather Ole, who keep the old style tradition and became Ole Gjermundson.

Anything sound familiar?

Send me your e-mail and I'll give you a RTF file you can import into Word (or whatever).

Regarding the township. No but you should be able to see it on any maps of Polk County.

You had asked about Gjermund Neirson.
He is the son of Neri Gjermundson BERGLAND and Haege Mikkel Dottir Mandt. In 1872 he left Telemark Norway on a ship from Skien Norway to Quebec Canada and then to Stoughton, Wisconsin. His son Mikell Gjermundson Haukness Vraa was my great grandfather. He was born in Vraadalen, Telemark, Norway on Apr 29, 1857 and died on April 29, 1951 in Crookston, Minnesota.
