Johannes Pedersen EISHAUG
I would like to post the following genealogical query:
Johannes Pedersen EISHAUG and his wife Andrea Gundersdatter SAUG came to Jefferson Co., Wisconsin from Telemark in 1853 with three small children. At least one child, Peter (b. 1855), was born to them in Jefferson Co. By 1860 they were located in the Stockholm area, Pepin Co. (1860 Census) and they are buried as John and Andrea PETERSON in Maiden Rock (Pierce Co.). Johannes' parents, Peder Olsen ROLIGHEDEN (b. 1793) and Inger Steensdatter EIDSHAUG (b. 1781), are supposed to have emigrated with him. I can find no record of their deaths in Wisconsin. I believe they may be buried in Jefferson Co., but I don't know where. I have been told that they were members of the Pine Lake Church. Have the records of this church been published? Mange takk!
