My name is Sem Eik and I have been working on the Windom family side of Ole Hansen Windom of Minnesota. I came across Windom's of Greenwood in Clark Co. Wisconsin. In reading it I found that Thron Windom is related to Ole Windom of Minnesota they are brothers who came at different times to America, I have been told that Ole was married in Wisconsin in 13 Mar 1868 to Ragnhild Christiandtr ( it was said Black River Falls but no info found). Maybe you could shed some light on it, but I did not know that Ole's parents came to the U.S. and settled in Wisconsin and was buried in Greenwood, would you happen to know the dates? The article of Thron's Obit said he was buried by his wife and his parents, Hans Olsen Windom and Thora Thomasdtr who were married in Norway on 27 Dec 1842 and had 6 kids, Ole is the oldest 1843,
Torsten 1846, Anders 1848, Kristian 1851, Hans 1856, and Thron on 16 Nov 1858. (Yes I know some of the dates do change).

Ole Torgersen and Karen Thorsdtr are Hans Olsen Windom who was born on 1 Jan 1818 In Gran Oppland, Norway. His wife Thora Thomasdtr was born on 20 Nov 1820 in Gran Oppland, Norway. Sem Eik
