Larsen family of Wisconsin IP: 126.96.36.199 Posted on October 19, 2009 at 07:12:54 by Kathy M.
Hello! I am looking for information concerning the deaths of Jens Larsen and his son Lars Laurentius Larsen who allegedly died in a fishing accident off the coast of Kragero around 1892. The widow, Inger Claudine Larsen nee Halvorsen, and her children Oliver, Olga, Peter, Annie and Hans Carl left after the tragedy and settled in Shawano, then Langlade County Wisconsin. I do not know if I have looked at this too long, but I have never found any record of the deaths of Jens and his son Lars in any fishing accident, nor can I find any records of their departure for the US. (perhaps I cannot see the forest for the trees!) Any help dating their deaths will be greatly appreciated! Kind regards, Kathy M. Replies: There have been no replies.
