I may try and follow this a bit if I can. I should spend a little time on the family Yokes. Yokes is a family name in connection with the family name Maves. Mews, Mewes.

Surnames: NELSON - SORENSON
JOHANNA ( NELSON ) SORENSON
was my grandmother-in-law. Johanna was born
in 1879, at ELK MOUND, DUNN, WI. Her father was PEDER NILSEN born 1815 at
RIGEREKE, BUSKERUD, NORWAY. Johanna married ALBERT SORENSON, they moved to
where they raised four children. Johanna lived the rest of her
life in ST.PAUL except for a short time in CLOQUET, MN
where ALBERT worked
as a carpenter. Her son, Melvin SORENSON was my father-in-law. I have no dates
other than what is here, if anyone has information to this family please write
Note: Besides the reference to Yoeckes, I note the emphasis on Buskerud Norway. In the Meyer family tree, I found that the Oleson family at Hazel Run, Yellow Medicine county in Minnesota traced back to Buskerud. A descendent had married Irma Martin. from Madelia Minnesota. I think If I recall correctly the wife was a daughter of Peter in that Oleson line from Buskerud. There was alos a Sorenson family across the street from the Martins house at Madelia. And Joannie Nelson live quite a bit aways down the street. [hmmm!! Should I look in to it now or not] [naahhh]

Note: Strange as it sounds; I over heard something once at a thrift sale in the village of Menomonie. A lady who I think was a Peterson [ How could I have found out that?] say she had been to Granite Falls. I mentioned something about it to her that I had been there and she said to me that she doubted I had been there that far away. No i just let it go as we were strangers just talking. So that has always made me wonder, if there are more than one. Now I wonder if it was the one by Hazel Rrun Minnesota. So remind me to check into Oleson / Petersen of Buskerude -- Descendents in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Note: Nelson/ Nelsen family has married into Husby family. I also do not know history of this family either.
Do you see now how one can keep so busy, because one
family line Possibly could run into another???.
My!!! How one can get distracted!!!
