  • Notes 
    • Birthplace, origins unknown. 1801 census residence should be Schurdahl (alt. Skurdal, indexer error is Schaudahl in this record). Pål Kjorstad's research suggests David Jonsen was original husmann on the plot now called Davidhougen. Records from 1801-1865 show a variety of names, all under Skurdal. It is possible that the family moved between several locations on the farm, or perhaps various names were used for the same lot. I believe the tenant rights were passed from Lars Davidsen (David's son) to his son-in-law, Lars Paulson. Age at 1801 census calculates to birth of 1736-1737, at burial record, 1730-1731.
