Lars Larsen Lillestrand Family

Notes


8. Christian Gunnerius Larsen Lillestrand

Lillestrand was a family name assumed by Christian Larson. In an E-mailfrom Madeline Gallup (received 22 APR 2000), Lars Larson Lillestrand mayhave been the first to use Lillestrand. Lillestrand means "LittleShore." The homestead where Christian was born now lays in ruins. Thefoundation of the house was still visible, and a milkhouse was stillstanding in 1970s.

In correspondence dated 11 MAY 2000. Earl Lillestrand notes thatChristian Gunnerius Larsen did not adopt the gardsnavn (farm name) at thesame time as the others in the family did. Because he was unaware of thedifference, he did not find his name when searching records. Hecontinues to look into the matter.

DOB of 6 FEB 1854 received from Earl H. Lillestrand 14 SEPT 2000; DOD 20FEB 1938, same source.

Burial at Hillside Cemetery in Minneapolis confirmed by Earl Lillestrandin letter dated 28 AUG 2000. DOD from same note. Earl incorrectly notesthat the graves are not contiguous. At the time Ingeborg died, ChristianLillestrand had neither money nor insurance--Earl says his dad was "LuckyPierre"; he was barely able to scrape together enough for a minimalfuneral. Only one lot could be purchased with Ingeborg died, somethingChristian Lillestrand was very displeased about, and another bought atthe time Christian, himself, died.

From notes on FAMILY GROUP SHEET received from Earl H. Lillestrand 14SEPT 2000:
Little is known about Christian's boyhood at Lillestrand (a farm onthe eastern shore of Maridalsvatnet--Mary's Valley Lake--on the outskirtsof Christiana (now Oslo), Norway. It's a good bet that Christian workedas a farmhand as well as learning the skills of a millwright (as hisfather was the manager of a saw mill). At 15, Christian accompanied hisstep-mother, sister Caroline and half-brother Herman to the US, debarkingin Quebec and meeting up with his father and sister Karen. While theother members of the family appear on the 1870 Census for MadisonTownship in IA, Christian does not. It is believed that he marriedIngeborg Fredriksdatter Mundale in Decorah, IA. It is known that he madetwo failed attempts at homesteading in the vacinity of what is nowBottineau, ND before settling in Minneapolis, Hennepin County, MN, wherehe worked as a carpenter.

Received Mary Donohue of Hillside Cemetery:
Hillside Cemetery can be reached by taking 35W to Stinson Blvd.Take Stinson Blvd north to HWY # 88; turn right. Entrance will be onleft about a block from the Stinson.
The plots for Christian and Ingeborg are in Section I. (The owner oftheir lot is listed as Louis Lillestrand--Earl's dad. Earl said thatwhen Ingeborg died, his dad only had money for one plot. Christianraised quite a fuss about only buying one plot, and it appears that Louisdid buy the other plot shortly after Ingeborg was buried.)
Section I is along the eastern edge of the cemetery. To find thegraves, stand at the SE corner of the section. Walk 8 rows into thesection (travelling east), and then walk to the north to the 23rd and24th graves (the next set of graves will run in a row perpendicular tothe row of graves where Christian and Ingeborg are buried. Do not gofurther north than the large stone for Johnson, which lies to the NE ofthese graves.
Name: Christian Lillestrand
Cemetery: Hillside Cemetery, Minneapolis, Hennepin County, MN
Date Buried: 20 APR 1938
Age: 85
Lot: N1/2 349
Section: I
Grave: 1 (1'6"F*)
Interment No.: 20455
*It appears that the cemetery is marked off in 12'x30'sections, each of which accommodates 8 graves. And I think the 4'6"relates to the measure from the edge of the plot to the center of thegrave.

Note: According to info from Earl, it appears that Christian marriedIngeborg while using Larsen as his last name; only later did he adoptLillestrand as his father and siblings had. Earl suspects that Christianentered the USA either as a stowaway or as a disserter (after hiring onas part of ship's crew).

From Earl Lillestrand, 16 DEC 2001: The data on Chris is incorrect. Hewas born in 1854, immigrated in 1869 at age 15, and was naturalized in1874 at age 20. There are many anomalies associated with Chris. Hedetached himself from the rest of the family and retained the family name"Larsen" until after his marriage. He, alone of all the siblings, wasnot included in his father's naturalization in 1870. I am of the opinionthat, from the time Chris left Maridal until perhaps 1900, he was tryingto remain
incognito. By 1880 they were in Bricelyn MN.
Now as to Karl. I talked to Betty yesterday. She wasn't awareuntil then that he dad wasn't in Minneapolis with the rest of the family.We know that for a time he homesteaded in Canada. It isn't known when hewent to Canada, but he was there during WWI. This is
a possible explanation of his absence. He was born in Bricelyn MN, Oct17, 1880, and was 20 in 1900.


Ingeborg Fredriksdatter Mundale

The following information, primarily provided by Kay A. (Lillestrand)Leahy, appeared in the 1975 edition of the Mundale-Mondale Clan by Lesterand Maria Mondale:
Ingebrog Fredricksdatter Mundale (oldest child of Frederick) wasborn in Norway, 6 JAN 1849, in the district of Bergen, probably in thevacinity of Vangsnes, Sogn. Her mother's maiden name was Martha Lidal.
From Kay Leahy: "The story my mother (Elizabeth ChristensenLillestrand) remembers Grandma "Emma" (Ingeborg) telling about her birthis that her father was from royalty and her mother was not, so they wereforbidden to marry. Her mother (Martha Lidal) was apparently a verybeautiful girl and person. ...My mother (Elizabeth Lillestrand) thinksthat Ingeborg came to the United States with her father (Frederick PersonVangsnes) and the rest of his other family, Brita, Frederick, Ole andHans in 1856." (Brita took Ingeborg into her household and cared for heras one of her own.)***
"(Ingeborg) spoke of a half-brother in Norway, on her mother'sside. This makes me think that she was with her mother until just beforeshe came over here. If she were seven, she would have been old enough toremember her mother and brother. She said that her father always claimedher as his child but if he were of royal blood, maybe he couldn't haveher with him until he did come to the United States."
"Ingeborg was a quiet and reserved person with an air ofaristocracy; she was also a very loving person. My mother (ElizabethLillestrand) said she was an ideal mother-in-law, a good cook, and wasalways one to help in times of illness. She had home remedies that mymother still uses today (item written about 1974). My remembrance of heris of someone I dearly loved amd who dearly loved me" (p. 25).

***According to 1900 Census information for Ingeborg "Emma" (Mundal)Lillestrand, her immigration to USA came in 1875 rather than 1856. Thus,she did not accompany her father to the North America.

Birth information from church records; name of parents from same source.

Burial info from Earl Lillestrand info received 2 APR 2000.

Earl H. Lillestrand 18 MAY 2000 in correspondence dated 11 MAY 2000,corrected place of birth and noted that Fylke=county.

Earl notes that Ingeborg was delivered in Mundal and baptized there byher father, Fredrik. Earl believes the fact that Ingeborg was born andbaptized in Mundal was suppressed for many years, but he didn't elaborateon that point. He said it is unclear how long Martha Jonsdatter Lidalstayed after the child was born; it seems likely that Ingeborg stayed inMundal until the family emigrated in 1856. The family migrated to theScandanavian-like frontier of Wisconsin, settling in Puckawa, MarquetteCounty, on the banks of the Fox River.
Five years later, the family would move to SE Minnesota. Little isknown about Ingeborg until her marriage (See notes on marriage.).

From Earl Lillestrand, received 16 DEC 2001: I've determined that the1900 entry of 1875 (See Census data for Christian Lillestrand) for Emmais the date of her naturalization, not arrival in this country,
at which time she was 25 years old.

Subject: Lars Larssen Lillestrand offspring
Hi,
Christian Larsen Lillestrand was my great-grandmother's (Caroline's)brother. Caroline was born 12 July 1860 also in Maridalen, Norway.According to the 1865 census, Lars Larssen was a widower with 3 children- Christian, Caroline and Lovise ( b. 1858). I also found in the DigitalArchives (University of Bergen) that Caroline left with her father on the"Concordia" in 1869.
The only reason I knew that they settled in IA first was the 1880census of Norwegians in Minnesota stated that their oldest child (totalof 11, but only 7 survived) named Christian was 2 years old. Last week Imanaged to acquire a copy of her obit, but it did not state date ofmarriage to Carl Christopherson, who also went by the name of Charlesaccording to the county birth records that I was able to locate in FergusFalls, MN.
As a child I vaguely remember Uncle Herman Lillestrand, who in the50's was living in St. Cloud, MN. Tracing records in Norway can be quitea challenge, but also great fun.
Thank you for the information you posted.--Barb Christopherson

Just a few questions. From the Digital Archives Emmigrants fromOslo #11715 is Ingeborg Larsen Lillestrand with a date of Sept. 10.1869(ID # 3090A) along with Herman and Caroline Marie (9 years old), but yourinfo from S.S. Hibernia that sailed on Sept 7, 1869. Maybe thetranscriber had the wrong week?
Caroline Marie Larsen Lillestrand Christopherson's father-in-lawstayed in Iowa. He's listed in the Norwegians in Iowa 1880 census(Digital Archives) #15119 - Christian Johnson (in the 1865 N. census,he's called Christopher) 55 years of age and his wife Anna (Amundsdatter)b. 1824, and also the other brother John (Johan) Johnson b.1846. Withthat info I have found the brothers, now the challenge will be to findthe 5 sister - 1) Andrine Christophersdatter b. 1855. 2) Anne M. b. 1859,3) Karen H. b.1862, 4) Christiane, b.1865 and 5) unk.
When I was in Fergus Falls, MN 10 days ago, I was able to locate theobits for both Caroline and Carl Christopherson. (Fergus Falls, DailyJournal) Caroline died Jan 2, 1930. "She resided for some time in Iowaand was united in marriage to Mr. Carl Christopherson there. They movedto the
town of Aastad, this county, residing there for some time and thenlocated in North Dakota where they resided for ten years, returning tothis county in 1914, and locating in Fergus Falls. She was the mother ofeleven children, seven of whom, one daughter and six sons, are left tomourn the death of a good mother. They are: Mrs. F. W. Thurnau(Christine b. Jan 16, 1881), or this city; Gilbert (birth recorded asJohn Gilbert, b. Dec 11, 1882), Henry Arthur (b. Jeb 1, 1886), AntonLewis (b. Mar 8, 1888, d. June 27, 1942), Karsten Martinius (b, Sept 16,1890, d. 1963) - my grandfather, Elvin Gunnerius (b. March 14, 1894 d.June 1972), and Kenneth M. (b. 1898, d. June 2, 1953 - fell off roof).She is also survived by three sisters and three brothers; ChristianLillestrand and Mrs. M. N. Hagen, Minneapolis, Mrs. L. A. Fischer,Glendive, Mont.; Herman Lillestrand, Landa, N.D.; Mrs. A. C. Johnson,Kinley, Sask., and Willie Lillestrand, Los Angeles, Cal.
I also so found additional birth records for Anna Christine b. Aug8, 1879, d. ?), Kasper Theodore b. Nov 20, 1884 and Male Christophersonb. Feb 2, 1893. The Norwegians in Amer 1880 census lists a Christian, 2years old and born in Iowa. That would account for the 4 other children.
The only ones who married and had children were Henry ( 1 daughter -Henrietta), Kenneth (Kenneth C. & 2 daughters Mrs. Dennis Adams & Mrs.George Boles all in Anacortes, WA as of 1953), and my grandfather Karsten(Lauretta b. Aug 7 1921,d. 1988, Arthur W. b. Aug 7, 1923 d. April 9,1979 - vehicle accident, and Lois b. 1932, d. 1989).
