*Norwegian Naming Practices:

The child will usually keep his given last name now. In earlier days it was more normal to use their fathers first name as the child's last name. They then put a -sen (for son) or -datter(for daughter). Ole , son of Olie Andersen, would perhaps have his complete name spelled like this: Anton Olesen.. An example from my family. My ggfather was Nils Fjeldstad, his son (my grandfather) was named Anders Nilsen indicates son of Nils ) Fjeldstad. A daughter would have her name lake this: Rikke Helgesdatter (daughter of Helge) Sanner. A little bit confusing, since not all people used it this way. Some left out the connection to their father, some did not - Helge Sanner, Norway; e-mail to Karolyn Roberts


**(Older Brother) Olsen (could the name be August??) -: Antone used to tell this story: "When my brother was 14 and I was 7, my brother took me and we hid on a ship bound for the U.S. When arriving in the U.S., we both worked for an Irishman which worked us very hard, and we did not get enough to eat, in fact, nearly starved us to death.- We were the Olsen boys and there were too many Olsens here, so we changed our names. My name was Amundson (could be mother's maiden name), and I changed it to Amerson. My brother changed his to a different name.  (Aunt Carrie)

m 2Clara Berg (Antigo Journal 1967 Obit of Harry) At age 10, Harry stayed in a room at Dr. Torpy's residence in Minoqua,WI. He shoveled sidewalks and did other jobs for the doctor. Harry & Margie lived with Aunt Edith & Uncle John Slater in the town of Almon until after Lysle was born; then moved to Town of Hutchins, Shawano, WI Occupation: Farming; had an all Jersey herd for the rich fat content needed at the cheese factory, Plymouth Rock chickens, sheep, horses, & pigs. Also cut blocks of ice out of the lake and sold, made maple syrup. Harry was known as PaPa to his children and Margie as Mamma. Burial: Woodlawn Cemetery,Twp of Hutchins,Shawano,WI-Mamma was a very talented seamstress and made the girls dresses, quilts, and she knit mittens and caps, heavy socks for Papa as well as his liner mittens he wore under his leather ones. In later years, she made crepe paper flowers that were beautiful. She also did a lot of crocheting of doilies, etc. She was a strong believer in God. Family devotions were held each morning where a chapter of the Bible was read and we each knelt by our chairs while Papa and Mamma took turns leading in prayer. Harry Amerson donated the NW corner of his farm for a church to be built for the American Sunday School Union of which the family and several neighbors attended for many years. Margie also had diabetes as many of our family did, Grandma Pollock, Aunt Edith Slater, etc. She had a little pan that she boiled her insulin needle in, so that it could be used over, and Papa would give her a shot while whatever family was around would turn away and close their eyes. She learned to drive the car and sometimes did the cream and butter route of which the cream had been separated through a cream separator and sold by the pint or 1/2 pint. Papa churned the butter and Mamma made it into nice round patties exactly one pound each and wrapped each in waxed paper. She also had buttermilke to sell. She also set out large pans of milk to sour to make cottage cheese for sale as well as for our use. Bread was baked about three times a week. The girls learned how to make bread, cakes, cookies, and pies. In 1955, Margie was told she had cancer and passed away in 1957 from the Cancer two days after her 60th birthday. (Rememories Book) I visited her a week before she passed away, and she said she had been waiting for me because she had something to tell me, but then couldn't remember what it was which disturbed her, and she started to cry. I never saw her again. Karolyn Roberts--- (Above picture of Margie Pollock, age 15)---

 Our Home: We lived in a log house and it was located in the town of Hutchins where we owned 160 acres of land with a pond close by and lots of rocks for picking after Papa plowed. Our house had two bedrooms upstairs with four boys sleeping in one bedroom and five girls sleeping in the other. Downstairs was a living room, Papa and Mama's bedroom and a very small kitchen. Our table, which had to seat eleven people, was always open and covered with an oilcloth. We also had a cellar, several steps to go down on a ladder. It had a dirt floor well packed and a bin to store potatoes, etc. There were also shelves to store our home canned goods. (Book of Rememories)


When the children were little and living on the farm, they all had chores to such as dishes, sweeping the floor, helping with hanging clothes on the line, peeling potatoes, etc. (From the Book of Rememories of Bertha Gladys Amerson Serio)-

Shopping: Our clothing including shoes and stockings in the early years were ordered from the Sears, Roebuck & Co., and Montgomery catalogs. Mother made much of our clothing including our underwear. We went to Mattoon to a grocery combined with a dry goods store. We bought our shoes, boots, jackets, overalls, and lantern supplies there or anything else a farmer needed.-

    (Picture of Margie Pollock Amerson's minature doll furniture she had as a child)


Christmas At Home: I well remember Christmas when I was a child. Papa always went out into our woods and found a very nice evergreen tree. On Christmas morning, it was sitting on top of the closed sewing machine, all decorated with tinsel, glass balls of many colors, and we had real candles on our tree in little metal pincher candle holders, that clipped onto the tree branches. We received Old Maid, Krazy Ikes, Checkers, Dominoes, and later on Chinese Checkers and Flinch, games to be shared by all. We received some books. We played with Mama's doll furniture which is pictured. We would have a special dinner, and, of course, do our chores. (Book of Rememories)
