Severson Family Research Update

A few weeks ago, my cousins from Michigan paid me a visit. With them, they brought all the research on the Severson family which was done by my great-uncle, Harvey Maynard Severson. While I've posted almost all the names and information to the site, I've only verified part of it.
With the information I was given, I was able to do a search through the family trees on Ancestry.com (http://www.ancestry.com). While performing this search, I came across a family tree which had parts to it that were very similar to Harvey's research. As it turns out, the owner, who resides in Norway, is a distant relative to the Severson family. His family is related to the wife of Enevold Jentoft Sivertsen's wife, Anna Marie Ellingsdatter.
I would like to thank Inge Johansen for helping me verify the information that matches his family tree. I'd also like to thank Jeanette Tyler and Rebecca Briley (Alden) for providing me with Harvey's research.
