Ole and Guri "Julia" Berven
These are my children's 2nd-Great Grandparents from Norway. (Shirley has a larger, color wall portrait of this that I plan to photograph.)
Ole Knute Berven was known in Norwegian church records both as "Ola Knutson Øvre Børvæ" and "Olav Knutson Børve Ø." He was b. 4 Jun 1861 in Instanes, Kinsarvik, Hardanger, Norway; d. 15 Jan 1939 in Swan Lake Twp., Emmet, IA.
Julia was known there as "Guri Larsdotter Varberg." When she first came to America, she apparently called herself "Julie Larson" and later Julia. After her parents and two of her three sisters came to America a few years later, her family became known the Warbergs and from then on, Julia gave her maiden name as Warberg too. She was b. 2 Feb 1861, in Varberg, Øyfjord, Hardanger, Norway; d. 7 Jan 1952, in Estherville, Emmet, IA.
