Seeking info on Nils Nielsen of Dordal, Bamble. Believed born 23 May 1836 and baptised 26 Jun 1836. Died 05 Sep 1927 in Minnesota, having moved to USA circa 1893. In USA he went by names Niels Dordal and Nelson Thompson (the latter briefly). Parents probably Niels Torgjusen and Ingeborg Maria Larsdottir. Arrived in USA with 6 kids and wife Aase Karine Larsdatter (who later claimed to have been Aase Braaten), had one more kid in Iowa. Many pastors in the family. Any of this ringing any bells? Thanks!
