The Western family emigrated from the district of Hadeland, Christians (present Oppland) County, Norway. From there they went to Greenwood Township in Vernon County, Wisconsin and Henrietta Township in Richland County, Wisconsin. About 1900, various members of the family moved to Juneau County and the Stanley area in Chippewa and Clark counties. This book documents the story of the family through the fourth generation.
