Hi Jingerm! Thanks so much for offering to look up "my people's" names! The info on my g-g grandparents married in Christiana Twnshp (that I found on familysearch.org) is below and I've added their birth dates & other info. I'm most interested in trying to find which church they were married in and where the groom's mother, my g-g-g grandmother, lived & died. Details below.
*Marriage Date: JULY 15, 1853
*Groom: TOLEF AMUNDSEN (b. 1821-1823 in Kviteseid, Norway; alternate spelling is "Talleiv Aamundsson" & similar variations. Also, a farm they lived on in Norway was "Høglid"; but the family spelled it "Høgeli", so that might be another name they'd be under.)
*Bride: RANDS TORGERSDATTER (b. 1828-1829 in Sinnes, Vraadal, Kviteseid, Norway. I think "Rands" is a misinterpretation and should instead read "Rande". She actually went by "Aaste Sinnes" later in life. Her name in the Kviteseid bygdebok is "Aaste".)
*Groom's Father: AMUND GUNDERSEN
*Groom's Mother: RAND GUTTORMSDATTER (b. abt 1798 in Kviteseid, Norway; Name in Kviteseid bygdebok is "Rannei", which sometimes translates to "Rande" or "Randi" in America. According to the bygdebok she emigrated to the U.S. with her son, KNUT AAMUNDSSON in 1853. She died abt. 1864 in the US...maybe in the Koshkonong area?)
Here's an interesting side note: If you've heard of T.G. Mandt the famous wagon maker in the 1800s from Stoughton, WI, you might find it interesting to know that the bride here (my g-g grandma) was T.G.'s aunt; she was the sister to T.G.'s mother, Jorund Mandt.
I hope I haven't inundated you with too much information. I always think it's best to give more info than is probably needed. Thanks again for being willing to look up my ancestors in your records. I appreciate it VERY much!
