Submitted by Greg Carter, 05. juli 2014
Anton Osmundsen was my GGG Grandfather. He was a cabinet maker in Saint Augustine Florida until he died in 1858. In 1838, he married Laureana Leonardy, a descendant of the Minorcan settlers who are prominent in East Florida. Osmundsen Americanized his name to William Monson, though we don't know when. We also don't know why he came to Florida. It appears on the passenger list that he travelled alone in 1836. He was in Saint Augustine by 1838. Monson's parents were Salve Osmundsen and Gabriela Chaloine. He had a brother Obert Christian and two sisters, Oscine Carolina and Bethy. After his immigration, Monson was estranged from his Norwegian family—these names only surfaced in a letter from a relative in Minneapolis more than 25 years after his death. I am eager to learn more about his life in Norway, and those years in New York from 1836-38... Greg Carter, Seattle.

Hunting Passenger Lists

The information in the Norway Heritage Project passenger list database mainly covers New York lists 1828 - 1850, and Canadian lists 1865 - 1875. In some cases information about Norwegian emigrants has also been added from other sources like newspaper announcements, voyage accounts or other random records. There are also entries from the Norwegian Police Emigration Records. For more information read the article
