Looking for information about the family of Lars Pederson Lee & Sigrid - Sarah Bjelde Leel. Lars was born 1826 Aurland, Norway and came to America in 1846 with his family, including parents Peder Larsen Lee and Anna Botolfsdatter Holum. Sigrid or Sarah came from Sogndal. Most of his siblings went to Goodhue County, MN but Lars stayed in Dane Co. after marrying Sigrid in 1854. They lived in Pleasant Springs Township, Dane Co until at least 1870.
In 1880 they lived in Ellington Twp., Dodge Co. MN.
Known Children:
Anne 1852
Anna Marie 1854--married Petter Halvordson Lowe in MN, and lived in Ransom Co. No. Dakota
Ingeborg 1856
Peder 1858
Andreas 1860 --may have married Gina Johnson Nygard, and lived in Ransom Co. ND
Kari 1862
Mari 1864
Louis or Lars 1866
1880 United States Census
Home in 1880: Ellington, Dodge, Minnesota
Name
Louis Lee, born Norway, age 54
Sarah Lee, born Norway, age 57
Belle Lee, born WIS, age 22
Andrew Lee, born WI, age 20
Carrie Lee, born WI, age 17
Mattie Lee, born WI, age 14
Louis Lee, born WI, age 13
I've searched records from surrounding churches to no avail. Ellington Township is in the "four corners" area where Goodhue, Rice, Steele, and Dodge counties meet, so they may have attended church or married or died in an adjoining county.
I have a great deal of information about Peder and Anna's other children, but have not located any more about Lars and Sigrid. Does anyone have any information?
