The Knutsons of SE Minnesota

Updated June 4, 2002

I have traced our family back to Norway. My cousin has picked up the trace from there and has been able to make some connections as far back as the 1600s.

The first generation of Knutsons who immigrated to the US is Lars Knutson (1839 - 1911) who married Martha Halvorson (1856 - 1906) in 1876 in Fillmore County, Minnesota. They had 12 children (one who died as an infant). My grandfather was Knute Knutson, born 7/4/1878 and married Clara Moger in 1911. They had 14 children.

If you are related to the Knutsons who settled in Lanesboro, Minnesota, please contact me at <>.
