This is an excerpt from a book owned by Ottar Nielson Almli that I found in a write up about the Hagen/Almli family. It has some good information about the Almli farm.

"This farm was started in 1600 a.d. by a man named Almli. Jacob Ingebritson owned it around 1800. After him came Gulle Jansson from Luktvassli. He worked as a hired hand on the farm for a few years then married the daughter from the farm Fredrikka Jacobsdatter and inherited the farm around 1850. Nels Eliason, from Tustvatn, bought the farm from Gulle in 1896 and worked it until 1934, then his son, Ottar Nielson Almli took it. He married Borghild Albertsdatter Forsmo. This was a large farm originally and in a deal in 1821 a part of the farm called Sandbrukta was sold off. While Gulle ran the farm he built the large farmhouse which is still standing and in use, dug a well up in the mountains nearby and carried the water down to the house. He also built some of the outbuildings which are still standing and are in good condition, they were made of logs and later covered with siding. He was also known for making good brandy. He died January 15, 1913 at Almli. There were no roads past the house at that time so his body was taken by boat accross the lake "Ommervatn" near the house, to the road oppposite, then by horse-drawn carriage over the many miles to Dolstand church at Mosjoen where the funeral was held that night."

I hope this information is helpful to you. I am also searching for any information about Gulle, Fredrikka and the Almli farm.
