Krone & Ellertson Families - Elgin, Illinois & Sokndal, Norway

  of 147

I have completed a book on the Krone family of Illinois and Norway that now goes back some 12 generations in Norway starting with a Lars Torgersen born 1608 in Nedre (Lower) Mysse Farm, Sogndal, Rogeland Co., Norway, and died after 1674 in Norway. He married Gro Fredriksdatter, daughter of Fredrik ??. She was born and died and Norway. Those familiar with Norwegian names know until the 1800's the families took on the father's name so it changed with each generation. The family I am researching took on the Krone (or farm name) in the mid- to late 1800's in Norway and a sibling kept the father's name which was Ellertson.

I will be happy to search my database of Krone family members to see if we have a match. Information I am still looking for is shown in the following paragraph. The Krone name is part of my wife's family from Norway. This particular Krone family (farm name) came from Krone Farm, Sokndal, Rogeland Co., Norway, in the mid-1800's. So if your Krone comes from this area, they are probably related.

Searching for ancestors and descendants of Elias Krone (1840-1920) married to Charlotte Hanson (1850-1921) on June 24, 1873, in Norway. They emigrated to America in December, 1879, with two of their children: (1) Agnes Elimina Krone (later married Ervin Monroe Abel) and (2) Charlotte Elsie Krone (died young). Elias Krone was born May 31, 1840, in Stavanger, Norway, and died September 5, 1920, in Illinois. Charlotte Hanson was born August 10, 1850, in Oslo, Norway, and died December 31, 1921, in Illinois. They had six other children, all born near Norway, Illinois: (3)Inger (or Inga) H. Krone (1880-1973), married to Claude E. Fowler (1880-1950); (4) Joseph Krone (1882-1955), married to Sophia Osmund; (5) Charlotte "Lottie" Krone (1884-1958), married to Ross Walter Tomlin (1882-1966); (6) Laura Sophia Krone (1886-1960), married to Sylvester Harley Burgess (1888-1950); (7) Dagmar Marie Krone (1889-1950), unmarried; and (8) Elmer Krone (1892-1963), married to Florence Tomlin (1913-living). Searching for ancestors of this Elias Krone, born in Norway in 1840. Anyone here related to this Krone family? Willing to share information if a match.

Bruce Geibel.
