Karen, hello, I looked at the ship list and this is the correct ship
(Bjørgvin) and I would say it is very likely them. I did not compare
the ages to see if they matched but the ship manifest has numerous
Vossings on this voyage.

I found them on leaving April 17 and on the
list on Bjørgvin (Knud Isacsen Westun, 32 & Josten Isacsen Westun, 23)
leaving Bergen May 12 ( I assume this is them
maybe not?

Hi Jean,

Gosh you are quick. I was just reading the message when your answer

Just curious if the ship is mentioned as I found this on page 313 of
Knut Rene's book:

Knut Isakson Vestrheim, born 1817, came on the ship "Kong Sverre"
together with Odd Himle and others. He went along to Spring Prairie and
settled there.

It's a different ship than what Karen mentioned so I was wondering if it

was a different person, or the ship Karen mentioned was incorrect.
