Sjur Markusson Dyrdal (g-grandfather on my father's side) bought his farm from Jacob Dusenburg in 1859. The spelling of his last name on the 'land patent' was Marquasen. It appears that Jacob Dusenburg had received this land in Goodhue County, Minnesota for fighting in the War of 1812. On the same day Sjur's brother Lars also bought a 160 acre farm from Eunice Elliott who was the widow of Moses Elliott who had also received the land for fighting in the War of 1812. On the 'land patent' Lars's name had been Americanized to Louis Markus. The picture shows you the location of both Sjur and Lar's farms. Sjur's farm is surrounded by the red and Lar's farm is surrounded by the blue.
