About Halvor Severson

Mormon Pioneer Overland Travel, 1847–1868

Severson, Halvor

Birth Date: 12 July 1823 Death Date: 26 Aug. 1902 Gender: Male Age: 42 Company: 1847-1868 (Unknown Year of Travel)

Pioneer Information: The Severson family came to Utah in either 1866 or 1867. They likely came in 1866. The first documentation to place them in Utah is a child's marriage in May 1868 which was prior to the arrival of that season's emigration. Further research is needed to narrow the year of their travel.

In some sources his surname is "Syvertsen".
