As of the census return of 1875 - This Family lived at the cottagerplace Byhrstuen under the Farm Byhr in Nord-Fron Parish in Gudbradsdalen, Norway. Amund Pedersen was Born Mar 10,1849-Died Jan 14,1914. He married Kari Amundsdatter (Ronstalien)May 25,1870. She was Born Feb 5,1841-Died April 28,1930. They came to the U.S. in 1887-settled in Rothsay, Minnesota with 6 children. One of them was Anne(B-Mar 2,1875-D-Sept 15,1948)who married Otto (Kjelsen) Foss(B-May 23,1859-D-April 23,1931) on Nov 15,1889 or 1890 at Fergus Falls, Minnesota.
My Grandfather Peder Alfred Foss was born to this couple on Sept 21,1898 - died Oct 16, 1973 and married Mable Aanes, Born Feb 22,1901 - died Aug 21, 1960 who's parents were John Knudson Aanes Born October 15, 1864 - Died August 13,1927 & Tala Wibe born March 8,1874 - Died July 28, 1913.

John's mothers name was Sigrid (Husby)Hakstad. She lived in Norway (b-1841-d-April 20,1920). I would appreciate any information about these people especially over in Norway. Thanks
