Ole Larson's Folks

Born in Gausdal, Norway, on this day in 1820: Ole Johansen Brettingen, father of Helene Olsdatter. Farm name at birth was Sonstehage; he moved to Brettingen by his early teens. Name is given on Helene’s death certificate as Ole Lien, apparently a local error or misunderstanding by family or officials in Vernon County, Wisconsin.

Also born on this date, in 1823, Arne Pederson, just featured on his death date, 5 March.
