Ole Larson's Folks

Died in Vernon County, Wisconsin, on this date in 1944: great-grandaunt Anne Amundsdatter Volden (m. Skaug), sister of great-grandmother Marie Volden Moen. Anne was born in Sør-Fron, Norway, about two years before the family immigrated. Buried at Vang Lutheran Church, Vernon County.

Interestingly, another of their sisters was named Anna, born in Wisconsin seven years after Anne. I’m pretty sure that “Anna” and “Anne,” in Norway, were variants of the same name. I have often seen it spelled two ways on two documents referencing the same person.
