Family Genealogy
Thursday, May 03, 2007
 

My grandparents on my father's side are Joseph Marcuson and Etta Gunhus. Joseph was born August 18, 1877 to Sjur (Sivert) and Ingeborg Markuson in Goodhue County, Minnesota. Etta was born to Erick and Astrid Gunhus on December 4, 1882 in Rice County, Minnesota. Though they lived in different counties they lived within a half-mile of each other's home. They were married on February 4, 1914 and moved onto a farm Joseph had bought in 1899. My mother says that Etta told her that when she married Joseph she persuaded him to change the spelling of Markuson to Marcuson. They had a daughter and three sons with my father being the youngest. Joseph died in 1955 and Etta died in 1967. The picture is of their family. My grandmother is holding my father which would date the picture to around 1925.
