Erik Gunderson Gunhus (g-grandfather on my father’s side) – Erik was born on the Redalen farm in the parrish (Kommune) of Krodsherad in the province of Buskerud in Norway on March 3, 1828 to Gunnar Erikson Redalen and Thore Guulsdatter Glesne. He immigrated to the United States in 1849 with his mother, step-father, plus all his siblings. When he left Norway he was living and working at the Gunhus farm which is in the parrish of Modum in Buskerud. The family first traveled to Wisconsin but after about five years he and three other Norwegians went to Minnesota and became the first to homestead Rice County. His first wife was Hellena Hansdatter Glomme. She had five chidren by Erik. She died in 1860. His second wife was Astrid Aslesdatter Lien. She and Erik had nine children. He died November 6,1906. The picture is of Erik.
