I found Anne Samuelsdatter on a passenger list at Norway Heritage. I am accepting that it is the right one because a) the age and parish is correct, and b) another passenger is from the Bjerke farm, Anne’s birthplace. Note, however, that Anne’s parents are not on the list, nor are any of her siblings. It is not yet clear whether Anne’s parents came to America, but it is known that at least one brother, Ole Samuelsen, must have, as he has descendants here. I am trying to contact the descendants, but so far have not been successful. The three names listed in this excerpt are the only passengers from Øyer (Øie) parish. Please excuse the funky appearance of the pasted-in table.
Anne did have a brother named Johan, and I was hoping this might be him, but the brother was born in 1855, so would have been only 12 at the time of this sailing. As for Ole Samuelsen, he was born in 1864, so would have been only 3 years old at this time. Ole must have come to America later; maybe the parents did too. Stay tuned for more discoveries.
