Good morning!
Could somebody please help me find census and death data on Berthe Overlien, who was born on 3 March 1854 in Norway to Ole Pedersen MYTTINGSHAUGEN and Karen Hansdatter FLATMOEN. In addition, in my records I have her emigrating to the US on 06 Oct 1872.

According to the Jackson County, Wisconsin Cemeteries Volume V book, Berthe is buried in the cemetery at “Little Norway Lutheran Church” near Black River Falls. Row 11, Plot 3. The listing is:
Severine H. 1892-1893
Odell H. 1882-1900
Britha O. 1854-1895
Hans O. 1852-1920
Olaus H. 1878-1878
Severine H. 1888-1890

Their children died so young!

There is another Berthe Oberlien buried in the same cemetery! Row 6: Born Oct. 4, 1847, Died Dec. 5, 1902. It must be her who is listed in a June 1895 census record with the Gilbertson family.

You could find the graves on the Find A Grave site at Little Norway Church, Albion, Jackson County, Wisconsin. Bertha has a death record at the courthouse, Vol. 2, pg. 112. The 1900 census indicates they were married in 1878. Hans died 21 May 1920 and is buried in the same lot.
