I am very interested in the name, Andrew Aune, because ---
My grandfather, Paul Bengtson Hegstad (1878--1973), born Trondhjem, Norway, immigrated to this country with siblings, Sivert Hegstad, Marit (Mary) Bengtdr Hegstad (d. 1955), Kari (Carrie) Bengtdr Hegstad (d. 1961; m. Andrew Aune; children Agnes Aune Rudell, Gudrin Aune Kirkham, Carl Aune, Henry Aune, and Arthur Aune). All lived in Minnesota. In case we are referring to the same people, Marit Hegstad Okstad had five children, the last being Clara Myra Okstad Benedict, who passed on March 12, 1999. One of the children of Marit, Helen Metzler (1907--1992), lived in St. Paul, Ramsey, Minnesota. From the guest book of my grandparents' golden wedding anniversary (Paul and Clara Peterson Hegsted), are the following: Carrie Aune, Winona, Minn., Agnes Rudell, Minneapolis, A. L. Rudell, Minneapolis, Henry R. Aune, Winona, Gudrin Kirkham, Winona, and Wayne Kirkham, Winona.
I have tried to give you as many surnames that might prove helpful; if you do make a connection, I would certainly enjoy communicating and sharing with you family information. I have been working on family history for awhile and have quite a lot of information to share. Since the two Hegstad brothers married two Peterson sisters from Fort Ransom, North Dakota, the male branch of this immigrant family is far better known to me and I need further data concerning the females. The name, Engvald, is known to me only through family conversation and I can't be certain it is the same person you are referencing.
