On Emigration Paper of Joe Christianson, states he was born in Norway 1816, emigrated to the U S, Philadelphia, May 1884. (Also em. at that time were his wife, Anne Nilsdtr Viker Christianson, daughter Gunhild Maria, daughter Karen Torine and her husband, John Adolph Pederson and their twin daughters, Inger and Anne, who were less then 2 yrs old at the time. John Christianson's Dad drowned in Norway when John was 12 yrs old. Joe went to work for Rasmus Piltingsrud to supplement income for the family. He was born at Syndre Aurdal, Valdres. He lived in a valley called Baindalen (bone valley) thus named because when the Black Death swept the country in 1347, people died so suddenly there was no time for burial. John Christianson died 3 Nov 1905 on the farm he homesteaded, later purchased by Peder and Inga Paulson. This farm is still owned by descendants of Peder and Inga Paulson in the year of 1993. The farm was owned by Christian Johnson Skalet prior to Peder and Inga's ownership.
