Hi & Good Morning
I am trying very hard to keep everyone straight & trying to figure out how the witnesses to the family events fit into my tree.
I am pretty sure that Karl Nilsen/Nielsen = husband of Caroline's half-sister Anna (Amundsen) Nielsen (b.1865-Olso Norway)
Claudius's mother Marthe Pedersdatter was born in 29 Aug 1802 Ostre Toten Stange- & had a brother Ole Pedersen (b.26 Jan 1800- Heglstad Toten so possible Olson/ Olsen connection there for Randine Olsen (Stange) . One other possiblity was Claudius sister Elvine Sophia(b.1836-Stange)- Married an Oliv Eriksen( Stange)( I think?)- Perhaps Randine could be connected there too?
Caroline's father was Ole Nielsen - on the Baptism his occupation looks like "Graastensmurer"- maybe you told me what that was? (But I have forgotten )It also says 47/ 36 at the end of that line- I assume that is the birth years for Ole & Karen( Kajsa). Karen was born in 1836- Varmland Sweden so I guess Ole was born in 1847- so he was much younger than Karen or the date is not right??
It looks like Ole Thommassen was living at the same place as Claudius in 1865 too:

Someone on the Ancestry.com has connected with my Karen & Caroline Nilsen...They have Carolines father =Ole Nielsen as a Jens Olav Nilsen from Troms? I am not sure if this is the correct person but can't figure out why they would connect to my tree if they did not have some information about karen & Caroline? It appears this Jens Olav had 3 relationship/ marriages. I have emailed this person but have received no reply.
Yes, I know Olsen/Olsen are quite common but Pedersen & Nilsen have to be pretty close too(haha)
Karen( kajsa ) moved to Hurum from Varmland abt 1855- Her parents were Nils Nilsen/Hansson Uggelquist Ringsfelt & Lisa Olsdatter.
Karen had 4 brothers
Olov(b.Jul 1840) Huggenas Varmland
Nils (b. 11 Dec 1843) "
Anders ( b. 21 Feb 1850)
Johannes Nilsen/ or Tornquist
The brothers all immigarted from Norway to USA/ Canada- I think they stayed in the USA? I think Johannes return to Sweden as he is listed on the 1890 Swedish census under "Tornquist "
bye for now
