My great-grandfather, Jens Nelson migrated to the United States around 1875. He later changed his last name to Rognholt which is the Farm name he reportedly came from. Any information regarding the Rognholt Farm, Jens Nelson or any of his relatives is greatly appreciated.
Thanks! Mitch Rognholt (mrognholt@yahoo.com)

I was unable to find a farm by the name of "Rognholt" in Oppland in the 1865 Norwegian census. But the spelling would probably be quite similar.
The 1900 US census shows Jens N. Rognholt (Buffalo Co., Wisconsin) to have been born in Jun of 1854 and to have immigrated to the US in what looks like 1873.
There is a Jens Nilsen of that age in Søndre Land in Oppland in the 1865 census. But his family is not then living on a farm with a similar name to Rognholt.

It then makes sense to check the other online version of the 1865 Norwegian census for Land district in Oppland for a farm with a name similar -- and there is -- "Ragnholdt"

But no Jens Nilsen, maybe he was living somewhere close, sometime,

Just a Rognholt in census 1900 in Oppland
Nordre Land.
You newer know if it could be a misspelled Ragnholt. Rognholt..

And it also depends on when the farm took the name.
If he left in 1873 you newer know witch surname he took when he arrived US
Someone just pick something they liked. Also it could be from neighbor farm.
If he came from Land he most likely vent out of Norway from Oslo/Christiania
Like Jens N something.

One candidate

If PR is right, (I think he is) Nils had a connection to Rognholt when he married.
And if Nils is the father to Jens then he had also a connection to Rognholt.

If we se in the census for Land in 1865 we just find one Jens N…. and that is the Jens that PR found



This is written in the church book when Nils and Kristine vas married


11. Januar 1845
Nils Olsen Rognholdteiet 31 år
Kristine Christopher Fossum 27 år

parets fedre er ( fathers to the couple)
Ole Eriksen og Christopher Christophersen
forlovere er
Ole Finden og Hans Fossum

Yes, I do believe PR is correct, and your information regarding Jens imigration in 1873 and the marriage between Nils and Kristine supports that Jens is in fact my G-Grandfather. Your information ties the Rognholdteiet and the Fossum information together.

I greatly appreciate the information both you and PR have provided. You don't know how helpful this has been.

Thanks again,
Mitch
