Geography is the problem. Soren Thoresen was born in Brunlanes parish in the county of Vestfold in Norway in 1878. He emigrated from Norway on 27 Apr 1905 to New York. He may have visited Norwegians out in Iowa but I don't know that he himself ever lived there. He married Bessie A. Pikley sometime after 1905 but certainly before 1915. I have no doubt but they will show up on the 1920 census of New York but I will surely check. I have some information on his ancestors and some on his descendants-but nothing on Bessie Pikley.
