Hans Olsen and Mari Larsdatter (ancestors & descendants). Hans and Mari lived in Nes, Romerike, Norway. Mari died in Norway but Hans immigrated to Wisconsin in 1853. He first settled in Koskonong area and then to the Perry (Daleyville area) and many of his children followed. The family can be traced back to about 1200 to Audun Toresson of Sarpsborg. There are possibly 1-2000 descendents of Hans and Mari and most in southern Wisconsin. For more info, please e-mail Wayne Dahl Iverson.
Civil War Letters (courtesy of Rose Richards)
Private Robert Richards Jr. wrote letters (30 typed pages) to his sister, Caroline Richards (later Caroline McIntyre). He also mentions brother Fred and half-sister Harriet. I just put them online at our web site. Click on Family History and you'll be led to the letters. They both grew up in Dane Co. Wisconsin. Enjoy!

Clist Family Bible Records
I am in the possession of a family Bible record of the Clist family. It
says (in part):
Robert Clist came from England to the U.S. in 1837.
M.A.C. (I assume his wife, Mary Ann Craig) came from Scotland to the
U.S. in 1855.
The Bible goes on to list births and deaths. Researcher has more information on this line as well. For more information, contact Clerice Fisher
