  • Notes 

    • It is very possible that Ole and his family have been found on a farm called Skjervoldsplads in the sub parish of Skatvold, parish of N. Stj?rdal, in the fylke of Nord Tr?ndelag. The census shows Kristofer Olson, born in 1835. Wife was Mette Jonsdatter, born 1830. Two sons, Johan Kristofersen, born 1856, and Ole Peter Kristofersen, born 1860. He was listed as a "husman."

      Almost all our ancestors who emigrated were husmen and their families. Their lives were extremely difficult in Norway. There were many reasons people left, the biggest reason was to try to get a better life for the family and especially to secure more opportunity for their children. Almost all of the early emigration from Norway was composed of entire family groups. Single people who came were generally sisters or brothers or other relatives of parents of the family. [5]
