  General Notes:

Anna met and married widower, Ørjans, who was 15 years older, in Winona, MN. One presumes she is buried in/near North Prairie, Morrison Co., MN

The family story is that her last name was given to her at Ellis Island, when they couldn't spell or pronounce Kjellsdatter, which sounds like Chellsdatter.

Anne married Ørjans Pålsson Nesheim, son of Pål Ørjansson Holkasvik and Guro Gunnersdatter Bolstad, on 9 Apr 1868 in North Prairie, Minnesota. (Ørjans Pålsson Nesheim was born on 2 Aug 1825 in Nesheim, Ulvik, Hordaland, Norway, died on 9 Mar 1904 in Minnesota and was buried on 11 Mar 1904 in Minnesota.)
