When my gg-grandfather Sjur Markuson Dyrdal emigrated to the United States in 1854 he came with his brother Lars and a friend by the name of Hermund Markusson Sande. Hermund had a brother by the name of Hans who had came over to America in 1852. I am assuming that when Sjur, Lars, and Hermund reached the United States they went to meet up with Hans. I was able to locate some bio information (picture) about Hans. It stated that Hans resided first in Dane County, Wisconsin and then for part of a year was in Boone County, Illinois and then later in 1856 he came to Goodhue County, Minnesota. I have no definite proof but again I am assuming that Sjur and Lars would have also been in Dane County for the latter part of 1854 and 1855 and then in Boone County in the first part of 1856 and then they along with Hans and Hermund traveled to Goodhue County later on in 1856.
