I see the out migration of Bertha Tollak and Olene, but only Bertha and Olene=Lena seem to have arrived in Chicago. Impressive how men around these women drop like flies.

The age is wrong for Elisabeth— perhaps the Elisabeth who married Larsen is not the sister of Bertha.

I believe we did miss Sivert , his birth date fits comfortably between others. This leads me to suspect that the sister of Bertha who lived in Evanston was either Elisabeth or a sister-in-law.

The brother Amund is there in 1865 but not in 1875, perhaps he came to US?

Torkleee??? Do you find evidence of Tollok T in Chicago?

Barton’s testimony, 2 August 1886 the haymarket trial, mentions staying with his mother’s sister in Evanston around 1880. in 1882 he married the eldest daughter of the Ericksen family across Orrington Ave from Lena/Helena Smith.

Maybe the sister did not immigrate at the same time as Bertha.
