If this Mikal Larsen born just north of Bergen is your ancestor, maybe finding a little bit more can help either confirm him or rule him out.

Andrea Eriksdatter from Børilde farm was married twice.

Baptised 25 Mai (May) 1865, Mikael, male, born 20 Mai
father: hired worker Lars Olssen, Børilde
mother Andrea Eriksdatter Børilde.

It says he is born 20 Mai - wonder if with messy handwriting, that could have been confused with 20 Mar?
May, March in Norwegian is Mai, Mars

Also, since his parents married April 18, 1865, and he was born a month later, maybe the year of his birth was tweaked for scandal's sake? Hard to know.

Now with her 2nd husband Ivar, Andrea has more children:
They married April 15, 1873, and she was already pregnant.
