I am searching for information on my Great, Great Grandfather Sir John Rice Crowe, Consul General from Britian to Norway. He died in 1877 in Kristiana, Norway and is buried in Vr Frelsers Gravlund, Oslo, Norway.
My Great Grandfather, Gabriel Sigfried Crowe was born 20 Jul 1836, Kafjord, Alma, Finnmark and I don't have any information on his life in Norway and how or when he came to America. My research starts with his first marriage, 01 Dec 1874 in Adamsville, McNairy County, Tennessee, USA . I am very interested in filling in gaps between his birth 1836 and the begining of my research with his first marriage of 1874. I would appreciate any help you could share.
Thank You

Widower John Rice Crowe was in Christiania (Oslo) in 1865, see 33337
His son Gabriel Sigfried Crowe was not living with his father and siblings.
Search for baptismal records for Gabriel Siegfried, Gunilda and Septimus in Alta gave no hits.

Many Thanks to eibache and jwiborg for helping with this information. It was a shock to learn of the two illegitimate children. I am also searching for a book called "Travels through Norway, Sweden and Finmark to the North Cape
in the summer of 1820" by A. de Capell Brook, MAA. published in London in 1823 Printed for Redwell and Martin, Bond Street 1823. I don't know of any book dealers in Norway that might have this for sale.
Thanks again for all your help,
Sam

That book is VERY expensive but it is available at several Scandinavian "used book stores"
http://www.antikvariat.net/search.cgi?post

I ran a quick search for the word "Capell" and found the book quite easily.

A search of WorldCat databases also indicates that this book is in the holdings of over 20 libraries in the US -- and in the holdings of well over 40 libraries worldwide. You might check with your local lending library to see if any can obtain the book by Inter-Library Loan.
