Hi! My name is Patricia Schraut. I've been researching the Darbo family and just recently came across this post. My grandmother, Amanda Ragna Darbo, died in 1930 when my mother was very young so we did not have any information about the Darbo family. My great grandfather is Ole (Olaus) Hartvigsen Darbo, brother of Charles (Carl) Hartvigsen Darbo. Ole emigrated to the U.S.A. in 1885 or 1886. He joined his brother, Charles, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
When Johan Hartvigsen Darbo emigrated to Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1905, he and his family lived with Charles and Ole. John Darbo and his family then moved to California.
Ole H. Darbo married Ragna Hanson in 1912 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. They had two daughters, Amanda Ragna Darbo (b. 1907) and Olga Hazel Darbo (b. 1913). Both daughters were born in Minneapolis. Both daughters married, but Olga Hazel Darbo did not have any children.
Amanda Ragna Darbo (d. 1930) married Clarence Arthur Pigman (d. 1970) in 1925 in Todd County, Minnesota. They had three children. William (b. 1926 d.2004), Lila (b. 1927), and Laura (b. 1929 d. 1999). William had 9 children, Lila and Laura each had 7 children. My mother, Laura Pigman married Alex Schraut (d. 1990) in 1946 in Minnesota.
