I am looking for information on Johannes Askildsen Vinterhus, b. 2 December 1854 in Sauda: https://media.digitalarkivet.no/view/1641/10875/70. See number 14 on this page.

Johannes is listed with his family in the census for 1865: https://www.digitalarkivet.no/census/person/pf01038212004674

Johannes registered his move from Norway on 30 May 1872: https://media.digitalarkivet.no/view/6312/32724/11

He traveled on Orvar Odd 1 June 1872, number 105 on passenger list: http://www.norwayheritage.com/p_list.asp?jo=1457

I cannot find him in the USA. Other possible surnames: Winterhouse, Vetterhus, Askildsen/Askildson, Axelson/Akselson

Thanks for any help on this!

Likely the family in the 1870 Census. Perhaps Julia is the first child and Juda is the second child. I would think that the one that married John A Wing is the one named Juda in the 1870 Census.

Excerpt from Skånevik bygdebok. The two Guros emigrated with brother and parents in 1857, together with father's brother, and mother's sister, who were married.

At first, I thought it far-fetched that the Wing family could be the right people. But maybe there is something to it. A John Akselson and Guro Nielsdotter had a daughter named Kari Gurine in 1878, baptized at Lisbon Lutheran Parish in Illinois, #14 here https://www.ancestry.com/interactive/60722/41742_314934-00350?pid=1409593&backurl=https://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv%3D1%26dbid%3D60722%26h%3D1409593%26tid%3D%26pid%3D%26usePUB%3Dtrue%26_phsrc%3DQWQ3286%26_phstart%3DsuccessSource&treeid=&personid=&hintid=&usePUB=true&_phsrc=QWQ3286&_phstart=successSource&usePUBJs=true&_ga=2.258434314.1020211153.1586115947-1771956634.1562526693#?imageId=41742_314934-00343
(This link is terribly long. If it doesn't work, this is image 344 in the microfilm of the congretional records for Lisbon Lutheran Parish, Lisbon, Illinois.)

The birthdate for John Askelson Wing is the same as for John Askilsen Vetrhus, and John and Guro married in Illinois. Will have to mull this over... It would be easier if the sources connected John with other members of his family, since that is the family I know about. Will check through all the links provided.
