Gravesite of Anne Larsdatter Nakkerud.Andrew's Brother and Sister  Andrew Nackerud had one brother, Gilbert, who also immigrated to the USA in 1903.  Andrew's only sister, Anna Nakkerud was born in 1879, and she married Einar Arneson.  Her only child, Rolf Harry Arneson, was well-known to many of the USA Nackerud relatives he is a first cousin of Leif, Alf, Harry, Franz, Rolf, Margie, and Rodney.  Rolf Harry lived in Oslo and was a successful lawyer.  Rolf Harry died in 1989 and his wife Sigrid is still living in Oslo. 

Rolf Nackerud, on two trips to Norway in the 70s and 80s visited and stayed with Rolf Harry.  Harry Nackerud also visited the Arneson family on a trip to Norway.  Rolf Harry and his wife Sigrid had three children:  Morton, Egil, and Sidsel.  The Arneson family are the only relatives from Andrew's side of the family that the Nackeruds have had contact with in Norway.  See the "Family Tree" below.

Trygve Nakkerud immigrated from Norway in the 20s and had three children.  A son, Arnold Olaf Nakkerud, was killed serving as a pilot in Viet Nam and his name is on the Vietnam Memorial Wall (panel 24E, line 56) in Washington DC.  Two daughters, Elise and Gladys, have children and grandchildren in the Seattle area.
