Andrew Berg

Born in Aaberg, Austmarka, Norway 18 September 1864, died 17 August 1937 in Slayton, MN. Emigrated to US in 1892. Married Dorothy Gunderson 5 January 1889 in Norway.

Was 1st cousin to Carrie Anderson, my great-grandmother. Most likely one of his parents was sibling to Eli Aaberg, my great-great-grandmother.

Notes from my grandmother indicate that Andrew and Dortha Berg came from Austmarken, Norway. This is the same as Arne Thompson, my great-great-grandfather.

Erik Bergman

Erik Bergman - Erich Bergensen, both are names interpreted on census documents. Based on these census documents, I've traced family down to Bertha Berman Carlson, who was identified as Carrie Thompson Anderson's cousin. If this is a first cousin relationship, then Erik Bergman could be brother to Eli Aaberg (Berg being the common attribute). This is similar to the relationship for Andrew A. Berg. At this stage, everything's still speculation.
