Marte Østensdatter: Murder at Huskelien

Welcome to the “original” telling (the first in English, as far as I know) of the Marte Østensdatter story. It was researched, compiled, and first presented in 2011, updated 2014, by Joanne Lillevold, all rights reserved. A thousand thanks to cousin Joanne for her permission to steal big chunks of it earlier for my series, “Marte Bø: Great-Grandma, Murderess,” and for her ongoing collaboration in our shared family history investigations.
