Surnames: Twedt Bjelland Veberg Knutsen
I am the author of a biography of emigrant families connected to Luster Co., Norway, and in my notes I show that:

Halfdan Twedt, born in Bergen, Norway May 12, 1890, emigrated in 1910 and married about 1913 to Clara Alida Bjelland, born in Bergen, Norway Apr. 2, 1892. Her mother was Elisabeth Andersdotter nee Veberg (1863-1939), a native of Luster Co., Norway. Clara had emigrated in 1912. Halfdan was a baker and had a bakery shop at Clifton, Passaic Co., NJ, but at some point Clara was widowed and moved to Zephyrhills, FL where she died in March of 1968. They had one son Ray Twedt, born in NJ in 1914.

For my biography I am interested in adding:

* The exact date and place of Halfdan Twedt's marriage to Clara Bjelland?

* The date and place of Halfdan Twedt's death?

* The exact date (and place) of Clara Twedt's death?

I am also interested in information on Clara's sister Sophie Knutsen (1900-1990) who also lived at Clifton, Passaic Co., NJ, at least for a while...

Thank you very much for your great assistance to me in this matter!

Very sincerely yours,
