Here’s a curious detail from the sentencing document lines 13-16: Allegedly, the defendant (our ancestor), while stealing from a “Stabur” (a food storage building of some kind), *locked the outside door* of a nearby dwelling that was occupied at the time.
While the motive for that is easy enough, how the heck did it work? What kind of dwelling door has an outside lock with which a malefactor (bad guy) could lock the occupants in???

George, this is a great site! Thanks for all the effort you have put into gathering the history and geneology. If I can track down any photos or other history I will forward it to you.
