My gg-grandparents, Lars and Ragnhild Haselhaugen immigrated to Barron County, Wisconsin from Norway in 1877. But before they made the trip five of their children had already come to the United States. Olea was the first. She made the trip sometime before 1869. She ended up in Maryland where she eventually died. Daughters Gunhild and Kristi both immigrated to Barron County in 1869. Their son Gudbrand traveled to Barron County in 1872 and their daughter Ronnaug made the trip in 1873. The last of their children to immigrate was Berthe, my g-grandmother, who came over with her husband and child in 1879 but instead of going to Wisconsin they went to Freeborn County, Minnesota. The picture shows a record of some of the people who immigrated from near the Haselhaugen farm at the same time in 1869. The names of Gunhild and Kristi can be found in the center of the page. Their patronymic name is Larsd. This is short for the daughter of Lars.
