Sympathy Saturday: Card of Thanks, Children of Mrs. Aaste Boe

Milan Standard, 24 February 1922

After the death of my great-great-grandmother Aaste Boe, her children placed this notice in the Milan, Chippewa County, Minnesota newspaper Milan Standard. Before her marriage to my great-great-grandfather Jorgen Jorgensen Boe, Aaste used the surnames Halvorsdatter, Halvorson, or Otterholt, depending on whether she used her patronymic and the form of it that she used, or whether she used the family farm name. She immigrated to the United States from Bø, Telemark, Norway in 1867.
