Born as Johannes Johannesen (may have changed his name) in Chicago, Illinois on January 1, 1905 to Christian and Josefine Marie Johannesen. His parents lived in Sarpsborg, Norway until they came to the United States in June of 1901 aboard the SS Norge. He had three sisters Sofia, Agnes and my grandmother, Lula Christine. According to the Application for A Certificate of Arrival and Preliminary Form for Petition for Naturalization papers of his parents, his last known location was Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1940. Sometime after that his family lost touch with him and never heard from him again. His parents as well as his sisters and their families lived in Canton, Ohio. They are all buried there as well. My grandma's greatest wish was to find her brother and his family. Unfortunately, she died before she could make that wish come true. Any information that anyone can give me concerning my great uncle would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!
