      According to the 1910 US Census Martha Osmudson immigrated in1860.

      “Martha’s mother had two brothers. Martha’s mother and husband were given a farm in Stokke, Norway by her father and mother, but the land was so poor they could not make it pay, so they departed for the U.S. and settled in Illinois about the time of the Civil War (1861) Osmonson family was originally Scottish and they came to Norway twelfth or thirteenth century. Osmonson and his wife went into the farming in Illinois. Osmund Osmonson continued the farm near Newark, Illinois. Martha’s uncles name...one of several was Harmon. Martha’s mother and father and sisters and brother came by sail boat and had to turn back when they were half way across the Atlantic. They succeeded in on the second attempt. Martha’s mother married against the will of her parents. Martha’s two bachelor uncles had house keepers and the housekeepers may have received the family heirlooms. A church in Stokke had in 1905 a painting of a family showing 22 children many of them twins with a priest in the center. This family is one of the oldest and wealthiest families in the church around the 13th century and are ancestors of Martha’s mother. One of Martha’s ancestors was on his way to court. A girl stayed overnight en route. An attractive servant girl told the mistress of the house that she dreamed that she had the keys to the young swain’s house, which meant she dreamed she was his wife. Martha’s mother’s ancestor subsequently married the servant girl.”
