Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 3, 1853
Sør-Trøndelag fylke, Norway
Death: Jan. 25, 1908
Dunn County
Wisconsin, USA

Bernt was born Bernt Andreas Haagensen, to Ole Haagensen and Elen Oline Ellingsdatter, on 3 Sep 1853 in Trondheim, Norway. Date of birth is according to original parish register; dates printed on gravestone & death certificate do not agree.
The Norwegian Census of 1875 shows Bernt as "absent", meaning he had gone to America, with the probable intention of returning to Norway once he had made some money. He chose to immigrate to the US, and changed his last name to Hawkinson, as did his brother Nicolai. He settled in Menomonie, and went by the first name of Andrew. He married Eline Hansen Nordby in 1880 in Menomonie, Wisconsin. His family and his brother Nicolai's family grew up together in Menomonie.
He was fatally injured by a falling limb while cutting wood, leaving his wife and ten children.
