Ole Larson's Folks

Born in Ringebu, Norway, on this date in 1831: Ole Ellefsen Sletten. Although not my biological ancestor, at least six of his children and grandchildren married relatives of Ole Larson, creating a complex web of interrelationships between the two families. For example, Ole’s grandson Clarence married my grandaunt Paula Larson (Aunt Polly), and they lived for years in Ole Larson’s former home in Norwegian Valley (top photo). Ole Sletten (like Ole Larson) is buried at nearby Brush Creek church.
