Hi Al,
I found some queries on the Norwegians in Chicago mailing list but can't find the darn thing to post a reply....not ready to subscribe to yet another mailing list, so HOPEFULLY you'll see this post. Perhaps since May you already have this info from Naeseth, vol II, pages 210-211.

In one of the queries on the mailing list it states that Knud Anderson Saue, aka John Anderson, immigrated in 1845 on the Kong Sverre. My great, great grandmother was on that ship and I checked that passenger list and did not find him. However, I did find the following:

Olaf Kjerre, arrived in New York, June 22, 1846, having sailed 40 days earlier from Bergen. B. A. Krogh, Captain, 98 passengers.

#158--Anders Knudsen Saue, son of Knud Brynilsen Bø and Kristi Andersdatter, bap in Voss, Ho, Feb. 23, 1806. Emigrated from Voss, Ho, to Chicago, IL. Died 1849. Married June 7, 1836 to
Ragnild Samsonsdatter Øen, daughter of Samson Pederson Øen and Brithe Nielsdatter, bap in Voss, Ho, Sept. 22, 1812, died in Chicago IL Aug 8, 1897.

Children include:
Anders Andersen Saue, born Jan. 3, 1843.

Knud Andersen Saue, born March 26, 1836. Printer and publisher of Skandinaven and many books. Took the name John Anderson. Died Feb 24, 1910. Married 1859 to Marie C. Frank, daughter of Frank and Brithe Baardsdatter Rogne, born 1841, died April 10, 1872. Two children: Franklin Seward, born Aug 18, 1860, died June 16, 1937; Laura Betsey, born 1862, died Aug 7, 1864.
Knud married for the second time May 13, 1875 to Julia Samson Een, daughter of Peder Samsonson Øen, died march 10, 1910. Four children: Marie Laura Sarah, born March 1, 1876, died Aug 31, 1933; Andrew Samson, born Dec 14, 1879, died Jan 5, 1883; Oscar Louis Manierre, born Aug 14, 1883, died Aug 1 1955; John Arthur, born March 1, 1890, died Set 3, 1940.

Lars Andersen Saue, born April 4, 1839.

One child died on the voyage and another on the Erie canal near Buffalo NY. Children born to Anders Knudson Saue & Ragnild Samsonsdatter Øen in America: Louise.

Sources: Mrs Louis M. Anderson; Historie om Udvandringen fra Voss og Vossingerne i Amerika, 323-325; Voss, Ho, Norway, parish records.

Hope this helps. I have the Vossaboki (all 4) plus Rene's immigrant book if you want me to look for anything....I think you already have the info from Rene.

Hope this helps.

Hi Jinger!

The mail list is hard to find, it's listed under "Ethnic-Norwegian". I received a copy of your Board email through the mail list, Thanks.

I am not sure if I have seen the Naeseth pages pages, my sources are listed as Kindem's Vossaboki and his Glimmeætti. Also Rene's book, I have the translated CD by Dr. Nuland.

I have Anders Knudsen and Knut Anderson listed as Bø's in my database. I know Knut was born at Saude but keep the Bø name in my data for the line of my 4th great Brynjulv Gitleson Bø (who was born at Øvre Graudo). My farm names are a mess but I use what's easy for me to find in my data.

Thanks for the Olaf Kjerre data. I see some dates that I am missing and I do not have Lars Anderson or Anders Anderson in my data yet. I just worked on some of this Bø/Bøe line last week, this came at a good time.

I will have a look at this again and might change a few farm names to Saue/Saude this time.
