This is a picture of the Snarum church in Modum, Buskerud, Norway. When my g-grandfather Erick Gunhus immigrated to the United States in 1849 he left his pregnant fiancee, Helene Hansdatter Glomme, in Norway. In December of 1849 she gave birth to a son who she named Hans. Hans was confirmed in the Snarum church in January, 1850. Mother and son left Norway for the United States in May, 1852. Once they were with Erick in Rice County, Minnesota Erick and Helene were married.
