When my g-grandfather Erik Gunhus immigrated to the United States in 1849 he made the trip with all his siblings plus his mother and step-father. Also making the trek with them was the daughter of Erik's step-father and her husband and two children. Their names were Sivert and Guri Sivertson. I am pretty sure I have located them in the 1875 census residing in Goodhue County, Minnesota. Close neighbors of theirs would have included the Benson family (my gg-grandparents) and the Markuson family (my g-grandparents). The Erik Gunhus's homestead would have been within a quarter of mile from the Sivertson's home. The picture is from the 1875 census.
