|grace gunderson - falcone||Eli Ostbol Nilsdatter (1814 -1901)|
I don't know if this is the correct forum to post this.
First let me introduce myself. My name is grace gunderson – falcone (born 1958).
My father is Maitland John Gunderson (1930 – living) son of Ernest Arthur Gunderson (1900- 1981) and Ruth Gladys Elvira Erickson (1903-1989).
Ernest Arther Gunderson's parents were George Erick Gunderson (1870 – 1960) and Jennie Armstrong (1878-1959) daughter of Martha Erikson (1850-1897).
Martha Erickson's parents were Gunder Gjeterud Erickson (1814-1900) and Eli Ostbol Nilsdatter (1814 – 1901).
Recently through Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) matching a distant cousin living in Norway contacted me.
He is the ggg grandson of Peder Nielsen (1811-1888) see below.
• Født: 20 Feb 1811, Østbøl, Botner, Brandval, Hedmark, Norge
• Døpt: 10 Mar 1811, Brandval, Hedmark, Norge 101
• Ekteskap (1): Olea Danielsdatter
• Ekteskap (2): Karen Pedersdatter den 7 Nov 1858 i Brandval , Hedmark, Norge
• Død: 10 Mar 1888, Brandval, Hedmark, Norge 77 år gammel
• Begravet: 20 Mar 1888, Brandval, Hedmark, Norge
Ekteskap: Ingeri Eriksdatter
Død: 5 Jan 1857, Botner, Brandval, Hedmark,Norge 362
Begravet: 13 Jan 1857, Brandval, Hedmark, Norge
Født: 1778, Botner, Brandval, Hedmark, Norge
Døpt: 27 Sep 1778, Brandval , Hedmark, Norge
Ekteskap: Niels Pedersen
1. Peder Nielsen+ - 20 Feb 1811 - 20 Mar 1888
2. Eli Nilsdatter - 18 Nov 1814
3. Anne Nilsdatter - 30 Jan 1817
4. Arne Nilsen - 27 Nov 1818
He said our connection is Eli Ostbol Nilsdatter (1814 -1901) my ggg grandmother (3rd) who is the sister his ggg grandfather Peder Nielsen (1811 -1888).
He sent me the link of his tree and it looks like Peder and Eli have the same parents [Niels Ostbol Peder (1799-1857) and Ngeri Botner Erickson (1799-1819)].
I thought this was very interesting.
Through Ancestry.com I am able to look at several family trees and most all who list Peder Nielsen have him born 1811 but passing a year later in 1812.
I wrote back to him saying I would investigate this a little further.
I did send him the link of "find a grave" where Eli Ostbol Nilsdatter (1814 -1901)is featured along with her husband Gunder Gjeterud Erickson 1814-1900.
He wanted to know a little about how and where they ended up after leaving Norway.
I guess the reason why I am writing is to share this with you since it looks like you have a very extensive family tree that includes Eli and Gunder and many more common ancestors of mine.
I am very new at genealogy, but this I found to be something interesting and wanted to make note of and for others too.
I have not researched the gunderson side extensively because I have been trying to nail dowm my mother's side who are from the Azores Islands.
If you are interested, I can write this person back and ask if he would not mind sharing his family link and email address in order to correspond.
Thank-you for your time and the wonderful work you have done preserving our families history.
Best, grace gunderson-falcone

Thank you Carol.

Loyal Peck (Find A Grave Memorial# 67537591) is my uncle and I am asking if you will transfer management of his memorial to me.
Thanks for creating this memorial.

Hi Carol, thank you for your service in the USAF.
While out taking volunteer photos, I came across Art and Rose at Ft Snelling. So nice to see who they were.
Headstone photos are up on their memorials now.

Thanks for posting the pictures of the Gundersons. I have been researching the Johnson, Gunderson and Springsted family. Erick Gunderson is my 2nd Great granduncle. I believe my grandmother Mabel Johnson Springsteds sister Blanche Johnson Springsted went to live with Erick and Sarah after their mother Christine Lund Johnson passed away in 1908. Christine was married to Martin Johnson-Nesset. Bertha Gunderson is my 2nd Great Grandmother. My grandmother Mabel Johnson and her sister Blanche married brothers. Mabel married Jay Springsted and Blanche married his brother Cecil Springsted.
Thanks so much for my cousins headstone photo. I sure appreciate seeing it
Thank you for taking the pics for me.
Are the other Gundersons related in any way. I believe Ernest had Collins Store before Collins or was it the store where Biganeks is now? Thanks for your interest and support. Grace
