I talked to Harald Vangberg today, and he has seen your posting. The Andrew
Williamsson that you have found, could be his missing Anders Willumsen
Haahjem. According to him, Anders left Bergen April 28. 1869 on the bark
HULDA with destination Quebec. He should have left along with several
persons from Stryn, Innviken and Gloppen. (I made a lookup at the passenger
list of HULDA, but didn't find him, so I think this must be wrong) He hasn't
found Anders arriving Quebec, or any other ports in the US. As it comes to
Syver, he left Bergen May 20. 1881, probably to rejoin with his brother. The
funny thing, he said, was that the elderly he has spoken with, didn't know
that there were two family members that had left for America. He thought
that this was because his great grandfather was married three times. His
first wife died giving birth to Syver and he then remarried 1 year after.
His second wife died in 1852-1853 and he remarried sometime around 1855 with
his third wife.
This is Syver's emigration from Bergen:
It states that he had ticket with Allan Linie, and and according to Norway
Heritage, I assume that he went with SS Circassian from Liverpool on May,
28. to arrive in Quebec on either June 3. or June 4. 1881.
As to Anders emigation, I have searched for him leaving Bergen, but find
nothing. If he was leaving Bergen around May 1. 1869 (as stated), he could
have left with a feeder ship, either SS Norway on May 2. or SS Damascus on
May 7. Norway had passangers to both Quebec and New York, Damascus had
passengers only to Quebec.(in a note it says that they left Liverpool on May
14. and arrived on May 31. 1869.) There were also a bark called Valkyrien
leaving Bergen on May 4. to arrive in Quebec on June 22. This skip was
quaratined at Gross Ile due to measel onbord.
Further on I have checked the index of Ulvestads "Nordmænd i America"
without finding either Anders or Syver (Siver). I'm wondering if they could
have settled in Canada somewhere.
If someone out there could give us some clues, I would greatly appreciat
