About Torger Augustine Opran

Torger was an immigrant from Norway who reported that he arrived in 1898, according to the census. I have no leads as to where he arrived, but he shows up in Galveston, TX in 1906. I have not been able to find any immigration or naturalization records on him, although the census says he was naturalized in 1905.

He signed a Catholic dispensation and said he was baptized in Baltimore - that is why I am searching here! Torger was involved in the US Lifesaving Service and apparently worked on ships and "revenue cutters." One Galveston city directory entry records his address as a ship. We may find the same thing in Baltimore.
