From Bergum, Norway.
There were born and died there. They had 13 children. When her children came over to America they wanted to bring their mother but were to afraid to do. During this time anyone who died on a ship would be thrown overboard and her children felt that it was important for her to have a proper barial. So she never followed her children to America and died in Norway.
My Great Grandmother Alice came to America when she was 14 years old from Bergum, Norway. She was born in 1874 and came to America in 1888. When she came to America she changed her name to Thompson. Her original name is still unknown but is probably related to her home in Norway. She changed her name because of the large amount of Norwegians that were being discriminated against in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The first fair housing act was passed in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1932 because of the discrimination that was taking place against Norwegian Immigrants.
Susan Alice Spencer was born April 28, 1945 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She was born the month and they year that WWI ended. At 4 months old, my mother came down with the whopping cough and my Grandmother was told to plan her funeral. Luckily she survived. She also got the scarlet fever at age three which is how old she is in this picture. Because there were no antibiotics, she was quarantined to her crib for three weeks.
