One child: Christopher (3-Nov-1830, Vang, Valdres - 29-Dec-1906, Vang, Goodhue Co., MN; bur. Vang Cem.), also tailor and spelemann. (see below)

      Lars Christopherson Løkreim m. 2X Anna Knutsdtr Remme(29-Dec-1823, Vang, Valdres -21-May-1903, Goodhue Co., MN). Apparently no children were born to this union.

      Lars (1802), w.

With them was Lars's niece Gertrude Endresdtr, who was the daughter of Anne Christophersdtr [Løkreim] (1810 - 1861) (the only living sibling who did not immigrate) and husband Endre Olsen Lien/Dalsødegaarden. Lars's family settled in the Vang settlement in Warsaw Twp. , Goodhue Co., in the rolling hills between the settlements Sogn and Dennison (near Hwys. 56 and 246), not far from where Lars's brothers Iver and Gullick were homesteading in Northfield Twp., Rice Co. Iver Christopherson Lockrem's son Christopher married Gertrude Endresdtr. The Lockrem brothers' sister, widow Gertrude Tviet, also immigrated in 1864 and settled in Warsaw Twp. Lars Lockrem's family was active in the development of Vang Lutheran Church.
