I am looking for information on my ancestors who were from Norway and settled in Vernon and Monroe Counties of Wisconsin. Since I was a child when my parents died, I have almost no information. What I have I will relate.
Ole Syverson (d.1879) immigrated to Vernon and Monroe Counties from Norway. He had 7 children, one of which was Peter (b.1840, Norway), who immigrated with his wife Bertha Neprud (Norway). They had 5 children; Albert Oliver (b.1866 or 1867 in Sparta, Monroe CO.,WI), August, Ella, Lute and Marcus. Albert married Alyce(Alice)Dowden (b.1869, Elroy, Vernon Co., WI) in Sparta, WI in 1886. Any or all information that you could supply me would be greatly appreciated. Thank You, Julia Syverson

I accidently ran
accross your posting.
To get right to the
point I am the son
of Howard Severson
of Portland Wi. His
father is Sidney
Severson. To clear
up any misunderstanding
about the spelling.
The spelling was
changed from
Syverson to Severson
on Sidney's birth
certificate to be
more American.
My father could
answer many more of
your questions. He
is at (608) 654-7960

Nothing has been done with this Syverson thread for a long time. Ole Syverson is(was) my 3rd g-grandfather thru his daughter Caroline, who married Mark Clark in Sparta,WI in 1857.

Hi. My name is Candace Syverson Cummings. My great grandfather is Peter Syverson who emigrated to the US from Norway. My grandfather is August Syverson, grandmother Genevieve, who lived in Marquette Michigan. August I believe started as a telegrapher and ended his career as president of the Lake Superior & Ishpeming Railroad (LS&I). My father was Douglas, born 1916, died 2000. My aunt was Genevieve . I would be interested in learning more from you.
