Rasmus and Carrie Finnestad
As I had stated on a previous post, Ole and Mari Finnestad's youngest son, Rasmus had left Illinois and moved to Iowa.
The passport application (shown below) for Rasmus' wife, Carrie, indicates they had moved to Saskatchewan in December 1912. Bert and family had already been living in Canada since 1904.
Below is a little bit of history from the book provided by Rasmus and Carrie's granddaughter, Carmen (nee Finnestad) Hurd.
