Ole Larson's Folks

Married at Korskirken (Church of the Cross) in Bergen, Norway, on this date in 1850: great-grandaunt Embjør Larsdatter (Skurdal) and Peder Endresen Lyserud.

1850Embjor marr

Embjør was the only surviving sibling of Ole Larson to remain in Norway, while Ole and his other three sisters came to America. I have not found any evidence of children from this marriage. If there were any, their grandchildren would be our closest relatives in the “old country,” at third cousin. Photo of Korskirken from blog of Critical Band. See this post for a brief description of the church.
