Wow...in the 1920 Census, Martha is a widow... these are th enotes I have:





Per Brian Gaber:


Tha marriage record shows that his wife, Marthe Elisabeth Olsdatter, 22 1/2 years old, was born in
Avaldsnes parish.

The 1865 Census you list showing Marthe Elisabeth Olsdatter is correct. It shows the family living
at the farn "Vigshaaland" in Torvestad. This is the residence given on her marriage record.

The marriage record says Marthe was born in Avaldsnes, the census says she was born in
Torvestad......

The marriage record is correct:

Birth #11
Born 21 Jan 1850 in Avaldsnes
Baptized 27 Jan 1850
Martha Lisbet
Father: Ole Erichsen Lande
Mother: Mette Nilsdatter
