Amund Evensen born 18.09.1863 - Økesveen, Biri, Norway left Norway on board the ship Angelo in April 1881.
Ida Evensdatter born 25.12.1866 - Økesveen, Biri, Norway was Amunds sister. She left Norway on board the ship Hekla in July 1887 together with her brother
Johannes Evensen born 03.08.1869 - Økesveen, Biri, Norway.
Their sister Berthe Marie Evensdatter born 17.04.1882 - Økesveen, Biri, Norway left Norway on board the ship Angelo in May 1902.
If possible I would like to find out something about them in USA.
