from from Dr. Craig Stevenson's Stevenson and Skjold History compiled 1984

Sjur and Mette Tvedten Haaland and their nine children immigrated in the spring of 1846 and settled in Walworth County, Wisconsin. That fall, Sjur and their infant son died of Typhoid Fever. Mette was left to raise eight children from three to seventeen years of age. She married Rasmus Dalen, a widower, in 1848. They moved to Dane County Wisconsin and eventually to the Lisbon, Illinois area.

Two children were born to this marriage, Anna and Ingeborg. Six of the boys, Ole, Amund, Christen, Syver, Bjorn and Haldor stayed in Wisconsin living in the Iowa, Dane and Green County areas. They became prominent citizens with the town of Hollandale named after them. see Etnesoga V p 121Tveito 3a
