This birth record says he was born on "a farm subordinate to Gullord". When he left or America in 1847, it said he was from "Gullordsletten". It is safe to assume that the farm he was Born on was called "Sletten", but subordinate to Gullord, so sometimes referred to as "Gullordsletten". There were other farms called "Sletten" in Biri also; Vangsletten, Storsletten and Sletten.
