Re: Storebo in Clarkfield, MN

Classification: Query
My great grandfather from my mother's side, is Andrew (Anders) Arness Storebo. He had a brother named Peter (Peder) and sailed over to Clarkfield, Minnesota, twice: 1898 and 1903. He married Anne Bolstad in 1902 in Bergen, Norway, and brought her over on the second trip. From "Courage in a Rugged Land", ISBN 0-87839-221-1, Andrew changed his name from Johnsen to Storebo, named after Storebø, Austevoll, Hordaland, Norway. Since the city of Storebø (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austevoll and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storebø;) has such a small population and seeing that the Storebo's really liked Clarkfield, MN, I'm sure we are probably related somewhere :-)
