We came across your detailed information on the family of Jonas Didriksen (Staurnes), and wonder if you could send us more?
My husband is the grandson of Jonas's daughter Ingeborg Anna, b. Jan. 4, 1894. She had changed her last name to HESS by the time she married in Stavanger, in 1916 to Gunleif Westlye. He took off for New York, and eventually, with two kids, she followed him there in 1927; they lived in Brooklyn.
We are interested in how Ingeborg's grandmother Andrine Olsdatter may be connected to another Olsdatter female -- Ingeborg, b. 1818 -- who was married to Andreas Johannessen and was mother of Salomon Andreassen Staurnes. Salomon and Jonas farmed at Staurness together according to an 1868 land holdings document seen online (Excel file).
Are also wondering if you are part of this family, and whether you may have any photographs of members. We do have photos of Ingeborg and her husband Gunleif Westlye.
