|Notes for Edward (Spouse 1)|
|The name as given in the Garmo church records was Edvard Jakobson.|
The ancestry put in here is very speculative at the moment, based upon the 1870 Minnesota census.
I wonder if he is the brother of Daniel Jacobsen, b. 1872, Minneapolis, Minnesota, who was living at Lyngvedsodegaard nordre in Garmo, with his wife Gunhild, b. 1868, Minneapolis, at the time of the 1900 Norwegian census.
There is a possible Eduard Jakobsen leaving Oslo in May-June 1896 (p. 359), but the surname is badly scrawled in the index. Check the emigration protokoll. He is the only prospect in the Jan 1895 (too early) to May 1897 emigration protokoll index.
The entry in the Emigration Protokoll36 (b. 18, p. 359) shows him as "Eduard Jaasen, farmer, age 42, homestead America, agent Raffel, destination Madelia, Minn., ship S.S. Angelo, sailing 26 June 1896, Kr. 228.00, nationality American." The surname is slightly off, but the age is pretty close, as is the destination!
They had to be together in March 1895 or Kari would not have been conceived!
