My name is Norman Grimsby and both my parents
were Norwegian. My father was from the Grimsby farm in Vanse, Farsund.
The Grimsby farm is still there and it consisted of about 5 farms. My fathers
name was Samuel Emmanuel Gabrielsen Grimsby. When my Dad came to the United
States in 1918 he was only 17 years old and they took the name of the family
farm as their surname.
So I am a first generation Grimsby in
the USA with the name Grimsby as I was the first son of a Grimsby in the
USA. The Grimsby name, as there is not many families in the USA with that
surname Grimsby, about 100.
So please put me on your list, as I might
be the only Grimsby, with the surname Grimsby in all of Grimsby. I'd like
to hear about your team, some info as to where I can get Grimsby shirts,
Thank you (tusen takk)
