Torril Johnson torillj@online.no

Note: Mr. Johnson is a remarkably well studied and energetic genealogist. He has read all of the rural books of the Gauldalen communities and has done extensive other research to create his database of 4000 individuals. This wealth of information was generously offered to these web pages and the personal data and richness of his knowledge of the genealogical practices of the community have helped me enormously!

Mr. Johnson: My primary project includes looking at the all the children after Randi Halvorsdatter and Erik Evensen Roeskaft. (Erik's brother is by the way my"link" to Eli Aasen) I do have some information here and it is increasing every now and then. I have encountered one problem with an emigrant to the US where you might have some information. The eldest son of Randi and Erik,Even had several children. He settled down in Malvik at Saksvik farm north of Trondheim. His son Kristian Evensen Saksvik born 25th September 1883 in Malvik left for America in 1907. According to sailing lists he was heading for Mindt, South Dakota. I know that is far away from where you are, but I think it would not be unrealistic that he had some contacts with his father's uncles, aunts and cousins which would be Halvor's children and their descendants. I think this seems logical also because he left on his own, no wife, no brothers or sisters or any other close relative I know of. Do you know anything or do you have any advice?

My address is: Torill Johnsen, Brekkelia 2 e, N-0882 Oslo NORWAY



Midtlyng

From: Paul J. Midtlyng 06midtly@veths.no

Subject: Midtlyng Genealogy

Date: Tuesday, March 25, 1997 10:07 AM

Dear Dr. Mitlyng: Thanks for your E-mail relating to the Midtlyng-Mitlyng genealogy. I am not enjoying genealogy myself (at least not until now), so at this moment, I cannot supply any more details than you already have obtained. However, I will do some research making inquiries to members of my rather large family, which themselves have displayed interest in the subject. I'm sure details will come up with time.

My family originates from Vinjeoera, where my grandfather Petter Midtlyng and his wife Elen settled to have 14 kids, which marvellously enough all grew up. My father Erling, born in 1929 was one of the youngest, but he unfortunately died in 1986. His oldest brother Robert is still alive and a dedicated triathlonist (!!), and I usually see him once or twice a year.

Personally, I am a vet of education, working in contract research at the campus of the Norwegian College of Veterinary Medicine in Oslo, and living near Oslo with my wife Cornelia and our 4 kids. By searching the web, you will probably also find tracks of my brother Egil, who is with the Norwegian Bureau of statistics, and my econd brother Joergen, who is with the University of Trondheim. Our sister Oddny is with the Regional Hospital of Levanger, north of Trondheim.

I was previously not aware of John Halvorsen Midtlyng, but from another family branch, a well-known Norwegian athlete (high jumper) named Oscar Midtlyng moved to the Chicago area early this century, and was as far as I know operating tugs or boats on the Great Lakes for many years.

I'll let you know as soon as I learn more about the 19-century family history, or if I should have the opportunity to travel near Texas.Best regards from Paul J. Midtlyng

Hi Jim! Work has been going feverishlyon the Shimp legs. I have approx. 3,000 names now and have more to input. This is such fuin. I go to the geneology library a lot lately and have found some super microfilm that has helped "fill in the holes." I did merge your file with mine -- I really like your web page (I know I told you this before). I will try to send you a file that does not overlay with yours.

Heutmaker

Hello Jim Mitlyng, I found your homepage through familytreemaker and on it the name Heutmaker.When I looked in the report I found:Helen Heutmaker married to Charlton Midtlyng. It is the surname Heutmaker I am very much interested in. In 1863 Jacob Lambert Heutmekers and his wife Anna Sibilla Donners immigrated from Guttecoven, the province of Limburg, the Netherlands to Minnesota. With them at least 8 children. I have traced them down in Chanhassen, Carver County, Minnesota. Now I am wondering if the above Helen Heutmaker is a descendant of this family?? Can you help me with this?? I can give you a lot of information about the ancestors of the Heutmeker/Heutmaker family.Let me know, thanks in advance Irma Lommen - Salden, Limbricht, the Netherlands.

Quenemoen

From: JPeter1553@aol.com

Date: Monday, March 31, 1997 8:31 AM

I was looking in the Quenemoen book I mentioned before but It doesnt have an index. Will take some time to find Glenda. Do you or anyone have any more information on her? It would make search a little easier since she is a fairly new person on the tree. Any information would be helpful.

"Three brothers, Johan, Ole and Martinus Quernemoen (Novermber 8, 1829-September 28, 1893), came to the United States from Norway in 1869 (closest possible verified year). The late Oscar Quenemoen of Dawson, my great uncle told me that my grandfather, John M. Quenemoen, was four years old when the three brothers came over with their families. Since my grandfather was born November 10, 1865 that would be 1869. Also, I believe it was Alvin S. Quernemoen, that said his father came over in 1869. That would mean Severin came over with his father, Johan, then. So from two sources 1869 seems to be the year they came to the United Staters with their families, or 1870 before my grandfather had his fifth birthday." from book put together by John Alfred Martinus Quernemoen. Not sure what year he put this book together. I know I have had it for over 5 years but not 10 years. Do you know the meaning of the name? Mill in the meadow (or moon, heath, or pine barren). I am from the brother Martinus. Not sure how you did the ancestor tree on the homepage but...(5)Martinus Married Rangnild Hansen and had (4)Martina Quenemoen who married Ole Samstad and had (3)Johanna Samstad who married Nels Peterson and had (2)Oliver Peterson who married Hazel Huseby and had (1)Loren Peterson who married Joyce (ME)Marsahll. We have two daughter 27 and 24 and two and 1/2 grandchildren..Kami age 5, Brenden age 4 mo, and one due in Aug. Loren works at a saw mill and I work with the Special Needs students at a High school.

Thanks for your reply. Good question. Our grandfather was born in Winona, Minnesota, in 1870 and split with the family. He moved to South Dakota and attended the University of South Dakota. He then moved to Rupert, Idaho, and then to Montello, Nevada. He never talked about the family he left, and died in 1950. He is buried in Reno, Nevada, one of three generations of John Tollefson's interned together - him, my father, and my brother. The fourth and fifth generation live in Centerville, Ohio.

Jim, Here is the rest of the information on Inga Sandbakken. Her parents were Ole Olsen Sandbakken, born Jan 1, 1862, North Fron Parish, Norway; died Dec 22, 1952, Boyd, MN. He married on Apr 26, 1891 at Montevideo, MN to Berthe Hanson Lund who was born Sep 14, 1864, Norway, and died Mar 17, 1953 at Tundsburg Township, Chippewar County, MN. I have a 1929 atlas of Lac qui Parle County and found 2 entries concerning Marit Estling in Baxter Township with a Boyd mailing addresses. They read:

Estling, I. A. Route 1, Box 47. Rents 160 acres in section 33. 32 years in the county. Owner, Marit Estling." "Estling, Mrs. Marit. Rt. 1. Children: Lewis. Owns 160 acres in section 33. 32 years in the county."

Jim, I have to correct a couple of spellings on the material that I sent. Tundsburg should be Tunsburg, and Chippewar should be Chippewa.My grandfather was a Sandbakken and the family came from a farm on the edge of Vinstra, Norway (the farm of Peer Gynt fame). Vinstra is in the Gudbrandsdal Valley. I visited there last summer. My branch is in northeastern SD. The branch that Inga belongs to is in the Madison-Montevideo, MN area. My cousin began the genealogy in the 70s and between the two branches existed, but couldn't find thought that a connection anything to support the began researching and pulled it all together, so it is only idea. A cousin in Oslo in the last year or two that I have been meeting the Minnesotans. I am a teacher in Wilmot, SD so at to scour cemeteries and present I am vacationing. It gives me an opportunity courthouses.I am amazed the people who by the amount of information that is on the Net. Some of have submitted have 300-400 pages! Would there be any Mytlings in Minnesota? In the LqP atlas, I noticed the spelling Metling. Dale Knebel



Evjen

Hi Jim, Thanks for the e-mail! So far I've found that my ancestors lived for about 500 years around Horg, Norway. Krake Løberg was born in 1510 at Ner-Løberg, Horg. He is 14 generations removed from me. My gggggggrandfather, Tosten Andersen Krogstad can be found on this web site: http://www.frugal.com/~evjendan/tree037s/tree0051.html Could you tell me which web page Joen Larsen Valdum and Mali Halvorddttr Evjen can be found on? I would be very interested in what other things you find out? I'll forward this e-mail to my friend Anders Normann who lives in Trondheim, Norway. He might like to comment further since he has done a great deal of research in the Horg area. Dan Evjen Seattle, Washington http://www.frugal.com/~evjendan/

Dear Sir, We talked before a little about our common ancestorys from the Horg area of Norway. Anyway, I noticed that you have been adding more inforamtion to your web pages. I pulled these lines out of one of your pages. My distant cousin Anders Normann (who I think we talked about before) has been helping me with a computer program that I have been writing. The program translates GEDCOM file data into HTML files. You can see an example of the type of files it makes on his web pages: http://home.sn.no/~annorman/t0000.htm. I was wondering if you might be interested in a program like this? The program is still being developed but I hope to make it into a shareware program when it is finished. If you think you would like to try it out just let me know and I will e-mail it over to you? I would really like to get your feed-back on it? The program runs under Windows 3.1 or Windows 95, NT, or OS2.I placed a link over to your web pages from my links page. I hope that was okay? http://www.frugal.com/~evjendan/pagelink.html Best Wishes, Dan Evjen Seattle, Washington http://www.frugal.com/~evjendan/

I write to ask if you name Solem might have a link to the Solem farm known to exist in the area of the Midtlyng farm that gave me my surname. This farm was near Horh in the Gauldalen Valley. MAny Solem'sare in our genealogy - oldest Guru Arensdatter Solem born 1712...

See the web site below... The woman guru contributed to the tree ofGunhild Estensdatter Roskaft...

Jim,I have been working with my genealogy, on my mother's side. The name Solem comes from my grandmother (my father's mother, Ingvarda Marie Solem). My father was adopted as a child, but he had contact with his "biological" mother all her life, and he kept her name. I have not researched this branch yet (!!?!!), but am planning to. I have been trying to find my father's father. I do know his name, Thomas Thomassen, but that is all. My father was born out of marriage. I do not yet know wich Solem I am yet (!!!)

Please note that I'm NOT "sensitive" about these issues, I just didn't get around to the research yet!

I have looked at your Web-site, but I couldn't find any Solem? Please tell me what you have on this.

Please check my Web-site at http://login.eunet.no/~janthoso/. It's not very good, it was my first shot at it. I have been playing with the idea of expanding it (in time). It does however contain a picture of Invarda Marie Solem! Best regards,JTS

Hello, I write to ask if your name Solem might have a link to the Solem farm known to exist in the area of the Midtlyng farm that gave me my surname. This farm was near Horg in the Gauldalen Valley. Many Solem's are in our genealogy - oldest Guru Arensdatter Solem born 1712...Gundrum Solem

Roskaft visited my relatives in the US in 1970's and 1983. See the web site below... The woman Guru contributed to the tree of Gunhild Estensdatter Roskaft...Jim Mitlyng Dallas,TX

Dear Jim, I'm afraid "my" Solem farm is another one -- in Rissa, not in Gauldal. "Solem" is a common farm name in Trøndelag, you see... I've done quite a bit of genealogy myself, but now it's my cousin who has taken over -- especially after he moved from Trondheim to our common origin in Rissa, going in the opposite direction of our great-great-great-grandfather! Nice web site!

A correction: in the "Excerpts from a letter to Dad (L. J.Mitlyng II-F), July 22, 1938" I read: "On we went to the school teacher who is also "Olokkar" in the church." "Olokkar" should be "Klokkar" -- literally meaning "bell-ringer". Really the assistant (or secretary) of the parish minister; very often this would be the school teacher. Good luck with your future research!:-) Best regards,Jan Frederik Solem

The Midtlyng Family

The Midtlyng Family

Date: Wednesday, April 02, 1997 6:51 PM

I received information today from a friend of mine Eli Marie Aasen - in fact we are also relatives, since our great-great grandfather is the same person. She told me that you were interested in contact with me. I have had a brief look at your informatin, but you need time to consume what you have collected. So I will have to wait until - time makes it possible to investigate in depth.Anyway I assume that we are related. Assume - because I have not found anything but my own connection so far.My connection to your three is Halvor Joensen Midtlyng (1787-1874) - your spelling Halvor Johnson Midtlyng. He had more children according to my information:

1. Ingeborg 2. John 3. Randi 4. Ingebrigt 5. Lars 6. Marit 7. Guru 8. Hilde 9. Siri

Your Anders (wasn't it?) is unknown to me.

Nr. 3 - Randi is my connection. Her son Esten Eriksen Kvaernmo is my great-grandfather.

I do belive that I have more information that would be valuable to you. Since it will take time to come through your collection, I will have to find out first how to attack the information presented. However my few investigations into your material has convinced me that I will be able to fill in some of your missing links. Since I am not able to communicate via GEDCOM, my program does not allow this, I ask you for advice how to proceed with my information investigation and contribution.

Best greetings Torill Johnsen

Subject: The Midtlyng family

Date: Friday, February 07, 1997 3:24 PM

Dear Jim

This is exciting. I have by a coincident opened the Skien Genealogical Page and there I came across a message from Jim. I am not really an eager genealogy researcher myself. However, I am a little interested and I benefit a lot from other peoples work. Several of my great-grandfathers and great-grandmothers had sisters, brothers, uncles and aunts who emigrated to America. Most of them settled down in Minnesota, Wisconsin or North Dakota. My great-grandmother Sofie Hovind, who was born at and took over the farm Hovind in Horg where I later grew up, had two brothers who settled down in Cedar Falls, Wisconsin. Todays generations of the Hovind family has, to my knowledge, had no contact with the descendants of the two brothers, until recently when the grandson of one of them contacted us. Mentioning Sofie Hovind is an introduction to telling you about our common family. I understand that you are both descendants of John Halvorsen Midtlyng and Gunhild Estensdatter Røskaft (Roeskaft). Gunhilds brother, Esten Estensen Røskaft was married to Sofie Hovind and he was my great-grandfather. I know there is also another link to the Midtlyng family a couple of generations earlier. I will check when I come home and give you the details later. Jim wonders if there are more Midtlyng farms. Yes, there are. My source for information about the farms and the families in Horg is the same as the book Rolf Midtlyng refers to. Did he only give you information about one of the farms? The book has information about them all.You seem to have quite a lot of information yourself, but I would be glad to help you fill the possible gaps. And of course I also have information about Gunhilds ancestors, actually back to the 1600's, systematically organised by a friend of mine who is also a Røskaft and Midtlyng descendant. I am sure that she also will be glad to help you. She has an internet connection at home. I will give her your names and addresses as soon as I see her. A few words about myself. I am 42 years old, by profession an economist and I work for the Norwegian government, the Ministry of Environment. My task is reducing green house gas emissions and other pollutants to air from transport and in general making the transport sector more environmentally sound. It is therefor a paradox that I travel a lot. Next week I will spend in Geneva preparing a UN/ECE conference on transport and environment. That will explain why you will not have any reply from me during next week. Best regards Eli Marie Åsen

I really think you've done a great job on the family home page. I checked it out shortly after you emailed me about it (2-3 months ago?) and then again today. You've really filled in a lot of family information. I had a lot of fun. Seeing that you had no press (as of yet) I contacted our local paper to let them know about my relation to Two Harbors native George Erickson (m. Hilda Lyngen) and how all that information is now on the internet on your website. I'll keep you posted on that front.Thanks for all your efforts...Lisa

P.S. How do you want any updated/fill in information for the family tree that I could give you?--LMK

Marit Lyngen, Mitlyng

From: Torill Johnsen torillj@online.no

Date: Monday, June 02, 1997 3:11 PM

I have spent some time investigating your system and have come up with the following two questions:

1. I can't understand that Halvor Mitlyng (1849-1949) is the father of Marit Lyngen. She was born in Norway before the mother left for the states. Her birthdate is the same as the girl born in Norway. Her father is Ole Samdal and she is listes on my list as such. Furthermore I am quite convinced that the Andrew she is married to is Andrew Esten - the son of John Halvorsen. The birth and death dates match perfectly. Do you know any more about this?

2. Gunda Mitlyng daughter of Lars J. Mitlyng has 3 husbands. The third one Albert Estling must be the son of Anders Arntsen Ystlynge thus the person you have named Gunda Mitlyng Paulson should be exactly the same as Gunda Mitlyng. Have a look at this you too.

Solem

Hello, I write to ask if your name Solem might have a link to the Solem farm known to exist in the area of the Midtlyng farm that gave me my surname. This farm was near Horg in the Gauldalen Valley. Many Solem's are in our genealogy - oldest Guru Arensdatter Solem born 1712...Gundrum Solem Roskaft visited my relatives in the US in 1970's and 1983 I'm afraid I have no relation to the farm you mentioned. Our "Solem" comes from a farm in Rissa, across the Trondheim fjord from Gauldalen, and has been traced back there to early in the 18th century, when my ancestors took the name from the name of the farm. I suppose there could be a relation from that farm in Rissa with other Solems here in mid-Norway, but that is not known to me.

Daniel Christiansen & Ingeborg Midtlyng

Jean Bradley bradjj@wave.co.nz

Hi, I was just browing through the MN pages and came across this site of yours.Daniel Christiansen was my great grandmother's half brother, and Dan Ronning in MN has sent me a copy of his data on the family. It is a few years since he sent it to me so no doubt needs updating but I know he is busy working on another half brother's line.I have had a look at some of the families and I notice that Dan has sent me a totally different spouse and family for Virginia Pedersen?? Husband Jim Morrow, and 8 children, Mike, Lorentz, Cheri, Kirby, Lisa, Philip, Maria and Marcus????? Early this year I was 'found' on the internet by a member of the other half brother's family in USA so that has been very exciting. Daniel and Ingebrigt went to USA in 1870 and their Father - Christian Johannessen, wife and family came to NZ in 1874. I always wondered why they went to different countires, but since I recently found out that they are half brothers and brought up by their Mothers, I can understand how they went their different ways.

Regards Jean Bradley.

How are these names known to you? You mentioned records that you would be glad to share. I would be glad to pay for their copying and the postage should you find such the easiest way to share the data.

So far I have read the four books produced called "Busetnad og folkeliv i Horg" (sth. like How people lived in Horg) as well as the books dealing with neighbouring "municipalities" like Stoeren, Flaa, Budal etc. Additional I have visited the archives in Trondheim (Statsarkivet), and looked at 1801census, which by the way is accessible via internet - but I assume you know that. 1865 census is the one I will investigate in the future, but I have already looked into 1875, 1891 as well as 1900. I will at the bottom give you more information about Halvors Children according to the book. Which genealogy program do you use? If I were to have the same program I could review the info and consider further how to export... The EMailing of the entire subdirectory is possible. I use a norwegian programme called PROBAND, which is not at all easy to communicate with so I am considering to find me I new one, but I need more time and info fraom experts in order to find out if I have to start all over again (with nearly 4000 names) or how it can be converted. So I think mailing would be the solution for the forseeable future.About myself: I am married and live in Oslo together with our cat. I work in the public sector with personell questions and have been interested in genealogy for some years, but it really took of some two years ago when I got myself a computer-programme.

HALVOR - his children

1. Ingeborg -(1816-1905). M 1839 John Arntsen Lyngen, Svendstu (1817-1897) Farmers at Lyngen

2. John - 1818-? M Gunhild Estensdatter Roeskaft 1825-?. Farmers at Midtlyng, To USA 1871 with 7 children: Marit, Halvor, Siri, Ingeborg, Esten, Lars, Berit. Another Esten died before they left.

3. Randi- 1823-1900 M 1845 Erik Evensen Roeskaft 1820-1889 Farmers at Skjaervold. Children: Even, Marith, Esten, Kari, Ingeborg, Lars.

Esten M Kari Roaldsdtr Folstad. They had 8 children - my grandmother Randi amongst them. She M Georg Trondsen 1919 and had only one child - Aase - my mother in 1925. She M my father Thor in 1954 and I was born in november the same year.

4. Ingebrigt - 1826-1900 M 1856 Ingeborg Ismaelsdtr Lyngen, Nedgarden 1828-1910. Farmers at Midtlyng south, To USA 1871.

5. Lars - 1828-1829

6. Marit - 1830-1884 M 1853 Anders Arntsen Lyngen, Svendstu 1829-? To USA 1887 They lived in Norway in Bakloekkja

7. Guru - 1832-1912 M 1873 Ola Olsen Gravraak, Melhus 1829-1897 Lived in Gravraakslia, Melhus

8. Hilde - 1836-1922 To USA 1870 M in S with Anders Eliassen Horg 1829-1908. He went to USA in 1867. Came back and bought Gjerdet, Maelen at Lund

9. Siri - 1821-1843, did not M.

And by the emigration mentionned above as well as those who married and moved, the family left Midtlyng forever.

Dear Dr. Mitlyng: Thanks for your E-mail relating to the Midtlyng-Mitlyng genealogy. I am not enjoying genealogy myself (at least not until now), so at this moment, I cannot supply any more details than you already have obtained. However, I will do some research making inquiries to members of my rather large family, which themselves have displayed interest in the subject. I'm sure details will come up with time.

My family originates from Vinjeoera, where my grandfather Petter Midtlyng and his wife Elen settled to have 14 kids, which marvellously enough all grew up. My father Erling, born in 1929 was one of the youngest, but he unfortunately died in 1986. His oldest brother Robert is still alive and a dedicated triathlonist (!!), and I usually see him once or twice a year.

Personally, I am a vet of education, working in contract research at the campus of the Norwegian College of Veterinary Medicine in Oslo, and living near Oslo with my wife Cornelia and our 4 kids. By searching the web, you will probably also find tracks of my brother Egil, who is with the Norwegian Bureau of statistics, and my second brother Joergen, who is with the University of Trondheim. Our sister Oddny is with the Regional Hospital of Levanger, north of Trondheim.

I was previously not aware of John Halvorsen Midtlyng, but from another family branch, a well-known Norwegian athlete (high jumper) named Oscar Midtlyng moved to the Chicago area early this century, and was as far as I know operating tugs or boats on the Great Lakes for many years.

I'll let you know as soon as I learn more about the 19-century family history, or if I should have the opportunity to travel near Texas. Best regards from Paul J. Midtlyng

I'm sorry it has taken some time to respond to your mail conserning: Copy of Johan Krogstad's Draft for Rural Book for Horg Prepared by Kaare Midtlyng c. 1969

I have been busy with my normal work as well as something suddenly happened in another branch of my familytree and a lot of new relatives came forward. During last weekend I had time to compare your text with the one printed in the Horg book and it is more or less identical so I would sugest you drop the word "draft" and replace it with JK's contribution on Midtlyng, because it is this text that has been printed. There are however some corrections to be made. I have tried to keep some of the existing text and with astrix indicate the change:

One of them was the only freehold farmer at Lyngen, Erish

Iffuersen, see No. 197.

**should read Erich Ellefsen

dollars. The herd tax for 1657 shows that a Melyngen there were 18 cows

and horses, 2 calves and 7 sheep.

**no calves but to goats and the last one is 7 sheep and pigs

Lars Melyngen's children:

chr. 3/22/1705, name missing

dtr. Siri b. 1706, d. 14 days later

son Anders chr. 1707, d 1719, 9 years

son Peder - 1707, 6 years

dtr. Siri chr. 1712

son Nils - 1713

son Joen - 1715, d., 4 years

son Lars - Twin

dtr. Siri - 1718, buried -, 9 mo. old

dtr. Ingeborg - 1721

son Anders - 1724, tenant farmer at Bysflaatten, later farm

**Peder is born 1709, dies 1719

**2nd Siri is born 1716

**new child: Ingeborg born 1718, died 1719

The history above is about persons not related to us as far as I know, they

only lived on "our" land.

The Midtlyng Ancestral Farm

 

 

Midtlyng, Serial No. 43. (Your Ancestral Farm)

later farm No. 29 and 3

1/2 part of old Farm No. 201

 

In the Register of 1722 it is mentioned that 201 Midtlyng is abandoned.

The same goes for 1723 and 1725. The tax is, as mentioned before, Bakke

Cloister 1 dollar and 1 ore, Melhus Parsonage 1/2 ore. These figures are

repeated for 1729, 35, 44, and 45, farmed by Lars and Anders, in 1760 and

71 by Lars and Torsten.

**This is Lars JOENSEN

We first will follow the half which had the serial number 43. Here Lars

Larsen Melyngen became the farmer. He was from the Ne'farm, Lyngen, born

**should read Lars JOENSEN

He already had through his marriage connection with

Melyngen, possible already acquired the freehold farm. The Church Book

shows for 6th Christmas Day 1726:

**This is probably not accurate. He according to printed text, had

rented/taken over freehold before his marriage. I cannot find anything

linking his wife to be to this land. This is in fact sth. that shouldbe

looked into some day. I tell you if I manage to retrive more information on

how the farm was transported to Lars JOENsen.

Lars Melyngen: son Esten chr. 1727, Tenant farmer under Moum

son Lars chr. 1730, Ran the home farm

dtr. Siri chr. 1735, Died at Bysflaatten in 1764

son Ole chr. 1737, Tenant farmer at Bredlimoen

son Iver chr. 1740, Tenant farmer at Fossbakken

dtr. Berit chr. 1744, Married to Mentz Thoresen Volland.

 

** Lars JOENSEN children above, additional son Anders LArsen born 1749, dies

1816, farmer at Krogstad Innistu which has to do with Gunhild Estensdtr I think

 

No more correctiond no more additions. I have not forgotten the 1801 census. I will return to that question later. I intend to translate from a book I have on Norwegian censuses and how to deal with the information in them. Will not last so very long, beginning of June I hope to send you that info.

By the way, I have come across another Lyngen living in the States. He is called Dennis Lyngen and is planning a visit to Norway next year or the year after. He is a decendent of a brother of Halvor I could not find his name on your page, but I will pass on informatin if there is something interesting to tell.

Torill
