Montgomery-Hoffmann Genealogy

Leafing out our family tree

Anders Roberg Family, ca. 1895

Anders Roberg and Agnette Lien emigrated to the U.S. from Norway. Agnette was eleven years older than Anders and brought with her a young son named Emil. Anders and Agnette married in Rushford, Minnesota, in 1878 and had three children of their own: Severin Andrew, Sophie Christine (my paternal great-grandmother), and Sena.

Welcome!

Welcome to my genealogy data site! I would love to hear from you if you have information to share or if I might be able to help you add branches to your own tree.

On the Montgomery side, my ancestors hailed from England, Ireland, Norway, and (except for the Norwegian branch) have been in America for centuries. My Davis ancestry links in with the migrations of the Seventh Day Baptists from Rhode Island to New Jersey to West Virginia and beyond.

On the Hoffmann side my ancestors have immigrated to this country more recently, hailing from Alsace-Lorraine (many from what would later become the Apostolic Christian Church) and Switzerland. Many of these ancestors settled in the area around Fairbury, Illinois.
