So many of these biographies have errors in them which make it difficult for researchers. You will find the family here on Rønnestrand farm in 1865 which is in Granvin, Hordaland http://www.rhd.uit.no/folketellinger/ftliste_e.aspx?ft=1865&...
. It's not far from Bergen but it's not IN Bergen.

I am not related - I was just looking at the board to see if I could get some information on a line I am following. I saw Runnestrand and I knew right away that was a farm in the area I do research. You'll find Knud at # 28 http://www.arkivverket.no/URN:kb_read?idx_kildeid=11750&...
which is in Granvin.
Knut's wife, Anna Larsdtr. was also from Granvin on the farm Kollanes. She was born 1855 according to Ættarbok for Granvin p 199 but I find her born in 1854 - #5 http://www.arkivverket.no/URN:kb_read?idx_kildeid=11750&...
