Ingeborg Nistad Markusson (gg-grandmother on my father’ side) – Ingeborg was born October 3, 1839 to Christen Nistad Bendixson (Benson) and Brita Kristensdatter Nese in Nistad on the Arnafjord in the Kommune of Vik, Province of Sogn og Fjordane in Norway. She immigrated to the United States with her family in 1856. After spending four years living in Wisconsin, they came to Kenyon Township, Goodhue County, Minnesota. Within a year of settling there Ingeborg married her neighbor Sever Markusson. They had ten children. She died April 28, 1921 after she broke her leg in a fall. A contributory cause to her death was arteriosclerosis. Her daughter son Joseph was my grandfather. The picture shows the location of the Arnafjord and the Nistad farm where she was born.
