Peder, Thank you.
I need time to go over all the information you just sent to me. If you are right then this is phenomenal. The family has been looking for this information for years.
Question: Is Rakkestad in Ostfold and not Akershus?
Did you find a marriage record for Mari and Lorenz? He married Anna Margretha Lund 30 Dec 1796 in Farsund. She died in 1844.
Again, thank you so much.
