Gunhild Marie Eriksdatter Wold
In the 1865
Norwegian census from Søndre Aurdal, her name is listed as
Gunnel Marie Eriksdatter. (Record 1175)
She emigrated from
Norway to the United States in 1880 boarding the S/S Hero (D.
Connelly Line) in Oslo (then called Kristiania, Norway) on 11
June 1880. (Listed as Gunhild Wold,
Record number 22521 in Digitalarkivet: Emigranter over Oslo 1871-1930.) The Hero sailed
from Kristiania to Hull, England.
She then boarded the
steam ship "City of Chester" in Liverpool, bound for New
York, arriving on 26 June 1880.
She settled in Postville, Iowa,
with the family of Anders Knudsen Kirkeberg, her mother's
brother. She and her first cousin, Gunder, fell in love and were
married - apparently away from the rest of the family in 1881.
We know very very little about Gunhild.
