Brita Kristensdatter Nese (gg-grandmother on my father’s side) – Brita Kristensdatter Nese was born in 1815 on the Nese farm which is located in the Arnafjord in the Kommune of Vik in the province of Sogn og Fjordane in Norway. Her parents were Kristen Lasseson Nese and Gjertrud ? Geithus. In 1843 she married Kristen Bendikson Nistad. She had four children. In 1856 they came to the United States, first to Wisconsin and finally ending up in Kenyon Township, Goodhue County, Minnesota. The family Americanized their last name from Bendikson to Benson. Of all my Norwegian ancestors that I am aware of she is the only one too have given birth to a child outside of the provinces of Buskerud or Sogn og Fjordane. Her last son was born in the province of Nordland in 1848. The year she died is unknown but she was living during the 1880 census as a widow with one of her sons and his family. Her oldest daughter Ingeborg is my great-great grandmother. The picture shows information about her children.
