Ole Peter Martinusen Grønvold
Emigrated at 17 alone from Norway on
10 July 1903 leaving Oslo (then Kristiania) on the S/S
Montebello sailing for Hull, England.
Registered in the ship's
list as Ole Peter Martinusen Grønvold.
Ole then boarded the
S/S Tunisian in Liverpool, departing on 16 July 1903.
Ole arrived on the
North American continent at Montréal, Quebec, Canada (registered
in the ship's manifest as O. P. Martinusen) on 24 July 1903. His
destination was listed as Minnesota. He didn't know it then, but
exactly 10 years later, his future wife would give birth to his
first son, Morris, the first generation American Wold.
The final leg of the
journey was by rail as part of the package deal he purchased
from the Allan Shipping Line. The line was eventually taken over
by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company.
