Anderson, Roe, Honsvik
Martha and Arthur Anderson reported to have emigrated to Manistique around the 1880's from the More og Romsdal area in Norway. Also Anna and Ole Roe (perhaps Roe-Honsvik or just Honsvik) were reported to be living in Manistique in 1883. They are relatives of Olaus, Jacob, Johannes and Martha Olson (Ellefson) who emigrated in 1883.

Isabel, your email addresses from 1998 are dead. Are you still interested in Roe, Honsvik, Olson (Ellefson) from Liabo farm in Halsa parish, More og Romsdal who emigrated to Schoolcraft county, Michigan? Reply and I can share some info off-list.

Hello, I am Becky.How interesting. Was surfing through old posts and came across this one. My husband is a desendant of Johannes Olson brother to Martha Anderson. How is Isabel related to them? Are there other brothers and sisters of Martha and Johannes?

Becky Anderson asked:
"How is Isabel related to them?" I DO NOT KNOW, and her email link appears to be "stale" (inactive).
"Are there other brothers and sisters of Martha and Johannes?"
If they were originally from Norigaren-Liaboe farm in Halsa parish, these might be them.
(NOTE: Date following name is their birth/christening date. I omitted death dates for those in Norway, since they were listed later in the chapter.)
Ole Olsen Knarvik and Martha Oldsdtr had 9 children:
B1) Ole 25Dec1843 married Anne Jonsdtr Klaetten - he took over the farm;
B2) Guri 3 Dec 1846 - married 3 Jan 1878 Johannes Ellevson 1854 - they moved to a different farm (covered in a different chapter or book)
B3) Martha 1847 - married 3 Jan 1878 Hans Ellevson 1854. This couple emigrated to US.
** Comment: possibly Johannes and Hans Ellevson were siblings who married siblings? OR coincidentally they were unrelated but shared the same patronymic last name? **
B4) Olaus 1853 (korporal) - he emigrated to US eventually.
He married Ildri Olsdtr Nistu Liabøe and had 5 kids.
B5) Johannes 1862 - emigrated to US (unmarried)
B6) Anna 1865 - emigrated to US - married Ole A Hønsvik
** Opinion: the "A" might be Anderson. She may have married Hønsvik in the US; just by the way the sentence was compiled. **
B7) Martinus 1850 married Anne Marie Rindal in Aure - they had 5 kids
** Each of the 5 kids are listed ("C" generation); then the 3 daughters of the fifth kid too ("D" generation). **
B8) Jakob who emigrated to US unmarried
B9) Marie 1859 married Sivert Sivertsen Vullum 1862
Please contact me directly off-list through my Yahoo account if this is your husband's family with "Norigaren-Liaboe" in subject. I will then send you the 4-page chapter for Norigaren-Liaboe farm (in Norwegian) from which this info was extracted. It was photocopied from the Halsaboka (farm book for Halsa district) that I found in the U-Wisconsin library in Madison WI.
Once you get (and translate) the chapter, if you have not done so already, join NORWAY-L. Somebody will help you use the on-line Norwegian censuses, church books, and maybe even visit archives for you to view original records if not already scanned. It’s a very active list (multiple postings per day) so for this reason I recommend joining in Digest mode (you'll get several postings packed into one or more emails per day).
