Jacob (Jakob) Knutson Aga from Aga, Ullensvang municipal, Norway, born Dec. 4th 1873 left Norway April 16th 1896 on a Cunard line ship,  (probably) from Bergen via Hull and Liverpool to USA.  He travelled together with Sigrid Larsdatter Aga, born Feb. 8th 1880.  He died shortly after arriving USA.  I have tried to find some information about him after his arrival in USA, so far without luck.  Maybe somebody out there can help me?  Where and when did he die, did he get married, and if so, did he have any children?

Here are both Jacob Knutsen Aga and Sigrid Larsdatter Aga emigrating from the port of Bergen on the Cunard shipping line.

If you go to ancestry.com and type in Jacob Aga, and for the birthyear, put his year and Norway for the place, I don't subscribe to that, but maybe someone will help with it.

Have you posted in Norway at the digitalarkivet posting page?

Thank you Taryn.  I have posted question at Digitalarkivet and possibly found some trace of Sigrid.  If it is the right Sigrid she lived in Thor Town. Iowa in 1900 (cencus).  No trace of Jakob though, I'll try ancestry.com Smiley

Hi Randijb, I was contacted by a person working on cemetery records for Thor, Iowa, they think they have found a gravestone (damaged) for Jacob Knutsen, born Dec. 1873, died October 10, 1896. It could be your Jacob, contact clarklanejr@yahoo.com

Thank you very much Taryn!

I have sent a mail to the mentioned adress, maybe we can get some more info about Jacob?  It would be interesting to know what happened to him.
