I am researching the ancestors of my father, Arnold Lee Sannes (aka Arnold Lee Kosmatka). I am especially interested in learning the identity of his maternal grandfather, a Scottish professor at the University of North Dakota in the late 1880s/early 1890s, who had a child (Jennie) with Helen (Hellekson) Viger, the mother of Jennie, the mother of Harriet, the mother of Arnold. He purchased a house for Helen's sister, Mary, who raised Jennie as her own, and then died young.
Also, any information on the following persons would be most appreciated:
1. ancestors of the Sannes' from Sandnes Lille Farm B in More og Romsdal:
a. Ole Andersen, b. 1818, Aure, Møre og Romsdal, Norway, and
b. Randi Rasmusdatter, b. 1823, Qvikne Præstegjeld, Norway
2. parents of Jens Edevind Markusen, b. February 15, 1847, Maridalen, Kristiania (Oslo), Norway:
a. Markus Christopherson, b. abt. 1815, , Enebach/Enebak, Akershus/Aggershuus, Norway, and
b. Marie Eriksdatter, b. abt. 1821, Enebach/Enebak, Akershus/Aggershuus, Norway
3. ancestors of Maren Andrina Brekke's parents,
a. Jens Hansen Brekke, abt. 1820, and
b. Anne Marie Mortensdatter, b. abt 1829, Askers/Aker, Norway
Many thanks to Nina Karlsen, Bergen, Norway, for her assistance with the Hellekson line.
P.S. Sorry, the Map and Timeline in the Ahnentafel don't display online.
