Did Alexander and William possibily marry sisters? Both wives show are having being born in Norway. William Greig's marriage entry correspond with an entry on the index for a Torina Harlson (24 May 1850, Racine, Vol. 1, pg 134).

Wondered whether Harlson would be a spelling variant/transcription of Olsen/Olson/Oleson etc.

No, while Alex and William married women who were both from Norway, they were not sisters.  Alex married Grace Oleson and William married Torina Harlson.

There is a history of Dane County from 1880 that has biographical sketches.  Included is one for Alexander M. Greig and lists his birthplace as Kinrosshire 1819.
