Looking for Information on great great grandparents Ole and Dorthea CARLSON of Barron County,WI

Query by leeann10

Looking for information on Ole and Dorthea Carlson. Both were born in Norway in 1847 but I don't know the exact dates for them. They were married in abt 1870 since the 1900 WI census shows them being married 30 years. They had 13 children but only 7 lived. I only know the names of their last 3 children: Petra,Carrie and Joseph(my great grandfather) All of which were born in Michigan Dorthea died in 1904 in Barron County,WI.

Dear Leeann10, Welcome.

Perhaps the surname changed upon emigration into the United States of America - say CARLSEN/KARLSON/KARLSEN.

Have you looked at these sites?

RootsWeb scroll down left hand-margin to FamilyTrees (World Connect), click on Search Family Trees, type in Carlson, Ole etc.

FamilySearch - lots of entries for CARLSON (all spellings) Norway.

If you are still looking for information on the Carlsen's, I found a great link. Ole and Dorthea are my great great grandparents. Take a look here: http://www.norwayheritage.com/snitz/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=5122

My Great grandmother was Klara Elise Carlsen, born in 1871 in Wisconsin. Most of my family on my dad's side is from Wisconsin.

I just realized you already posted there. Anyway, my great grandmother was the eldest child Klara. : )
