Tinn Farms

Greetings!

My great-great-grandparents were Ole Johnsen and Aagot Nielsdatter. They raised nine children on six Tinn-area farms. I have done a lot of research of birth/confirmation/marriage records through Digitalarkivet. I also have a map of the Tinn-area farms. Here are the nine children and their birth information:

Kari Olsdatter / born January 9, 1862 / Under Bakka
Nils Olsen / born March 4, 1863 / Hvammen
Karl Johan Olsen / born October 30, 1864 / Asland
Ole Olsen / born January 8, 1867 / Bjorndalen
Holje Olsen / born October 27, 1869 / Bjorndalen
John Olsen / born May 12, 1871 / Hvammen
Anne Olsdatter / born April 7, 1874 / Siljie
Einar Olsen / born February 23, 1876 / Siljie
Knud Olsen / born April 2, 1879 / Jallan (Hjalland)

Questions on farms:

Under Bakka -- Would this be the "Bakka" farm located below the Rue, Lofthus and Hjalland farms? Or could this mean a smaller farm owned by the Bakka farm?

Hvammen -- I see a "Gvammen" farm located close to both the Asland and Bjorndalen farms. Could Gvammen and Hvammen be the same farm?

Siljie -- I do not see a farm by this name anywhere on the map. Has anyone heard of the Siljie farm? My great-grandfather, Einar, and his sister, Anne, were born on that farm in the time period 1874-1876.

Thanks so much!!

Tim Hyland
