This is what I have on Kajsa( Karen)Nilsen:
Kajsa Nilsdotter, born 1836 Jul. 3 in Fiskaretorpet, By parish, Värmland Co. Fiskaretorpet was a croft belonging to a farm called Norra Skane.
Father: Nils Hansson, born 1811 Aug. 8, Alster parish, Värmland Co.
Mother: Lisa Olofsdotter, born 1812 Feb. 19, Södra Ny parish, Värmland Co.
Nils and Lisa were married in 1835 and moved to Kyrketorp in Huggenäs parish, Värmland Co. in 1836. In 1837, Nils Hansson joined the army and moved to a soldiers’ croft in Östra Uggelsäter, Huggenäs. He was soldier No. 42 and received the soldier name of Uggelqvist.
They had the following children after Kajsa:
Olof b. July 22, 1840
Nils b. Dec. 11, 1843
Anders b. Feb. 21, 1850
Johannes b. April 12, 1853
From the 1840s, Nils Hansson Uggelqvist is listed as retired with the comment ”receives pension from Strömsholm Canal Company, 12 Riksdaler ”. As a soldier, he was probably commanded to take part in the digging of the canal at Strömsholm, Västmanland county. It also says that he had a ”work permit” for Norway in 1853.
Kajsa was confirmed in 1850 and moved to a place called Tolerud of the farm Carlslund in Huggenäs parish in 1852, to serve as a farm maid.
In 1855 (Nov. 19) she moved from Sweden to a place called Hurum in Norway. She had a ”flyttningsattest” (migration permit) No. 81 from Huggenäs parish. There I’m at a dead end, I can’t access Norwegian records."
Johanne Petronelle could also write on a little slat & speak sign language.
So it must have been Ole born 1847 - and he was a "Graastensmurer"- so I guess we are getting closer in finding him?
Thanks for the lovely picture of the Trondheim deaf school- Was it common that the children would go to these schools ?? Was it paid for my the government? (I can not read Norwegian very well but I do know a few words)
I do have my tree on the Ancestry.com if you would like to see it I can send you an invite?
Bye for now
