Fredrick Ellingson Ringerud (gg-grandfather on my mother's side)
- Fredrick was born January 9, 1821 to Fredrick Olsen Ringerud and Gjertru Knutsdatter in the Adalen region of the Ringerike kommune
in the Buskerud province of Norway. He married Beret Nubsdatter on October 20, 1845. They had five children. He and his younger daughter arrived in the United States in May 1876 and proceeded to Freeman Township, Freeborn County, Minnesota
. He stayed there until sometime after 1885 when he went to Cavalier County, North Dakota
with his oldest daughter and her family. I believed he died sometime before 1910. His only son, Nub, is my great-grandfather. The picture is of the present Ringerud farm where Fredrick was born.
