      Fredrikke hadde 2 brødre som emigrerte til Australia, og der endret de etternavnet fra Reierson til Raleigh.
      De 3 søsknene hadde kontakt via brev.

      På grunn av at det var så mange som het Olson i Iowa og Minnesota endret de etternavnet til Raleigh de også.

      The family name, Raleigh, was taken by Fred and his two American-born brothers. They had Norwegian immigrant uncles in Australia who wanted an - English - name and chose Raleigh. The American boys decided they needed an - American - name and followed the lead of their Australian uncles. [1]
