Surnames: Petersen, Pedersen, Anderson, Johansen
Grandfather-John Rudolph Petersen, born Jun 1848, Trondheim
His Mother died 1856 - Reguline Jonette Johansen (Hegge)
His Father died abt 1860 - Ole Pedersen (Rudi)
both parents died in Arendale, Nedenas, Norway
His sister - Olga Bertha Petersen md Niels Olsen in Arendale
Aust-Agder -21 Nov 1878
Who took care of these two children when their parents died?
They were 8 and 12 yrs old.
John Rudolph was an artist - where did he learn to paint?
Family Story: He lived in the king's court and painted for the King of Norway. (How do we verify that?)
He married in 1870 in Oslo and emigrated to USA in 1871
Did his sister Olga Olsen have children? She remained in Norway, did she die in Arendale?
I have tried to read the microfilms of this parish and they are negatives- white on black - and very hard to decifer. If anyone could help guide me in this search to fill in the gaps I would really appreciate it.

First: I live in Tijuana, México. My language is Spanish so sorry if something is misunderstood.
I think there is some links based on your comments.
My GreatGrandfather (The father of my grandfather) was born in Arendale by 1850 from Bjerk (or Bjert)Petersen who was son of Peter Bjertesen and we don't know for sure the mother's name of Bjerk. Bjerk was married to Johan Henrikka Hegge whose sister married Bjerk's brother. I believe his name was John Rudolph.
Well, my greatgrandfather's name was Bertram and his parents apparently went to Poland and then for sure went to USA.
Bertram married in Arizona with Guadalupe Gutierrez and they lived in Ensenada, Mexico until they die.
Bertram studied medicine school in Saint Lois Missouri (USA) between 1870-1875.
I can provide you a litle more about Bertram ancestors and more detailed information about Bertram's descendants. We are about 350 descendants.

Sorry, but the names you posted don't ring any bells.
My John Rudolph Peterson had a sister Olga Bertha Peterson, born 9 Oct 1856 who Married Niels Olson and stayed in Arendal, Norway. I am looking for information on her descendants. Their father Ole Pedersen (Rudi) and their mother Reguline Jonette Johansen (Hegge) both died in Arendal before 1860. JRP was only 12 when his father died. I would like to find out who raised him & his sister.

Hi.

This would appear to be your Olga:
1865 census, 0903-Arendal.
address: Tyholmen; town of Arendal.
First of two households:
---Marie Aanons., Housewife, house owner, widow, age 59, born in Arendal
---Johanne B. Aanens., her daughter, unmarried, age 29, born in Arendal
---Peterine Peders., servant girl, unmarried, age 30, b. Arendal
---Johanne M. Hendriks., Foster daughter, unmarried, age 13, b. Arendal
---Olga B. I. Peders., Foster daughter, age 10, b. Arendal
---Michael Lars., unmarried carpenter's apprentice, age 24, born in Danmark
---Martin Knuds., unmarried carpenter's apprentice, age 27, born in Mandal
---Collert Mikkels., unmarried seaman, age 28, born in Arendal
Second of two households:
---Søren Terjes., seaman (mate), age 36, born in Arendal
---Christine Marie, nee Aanens., his wife, age 34, born in Arendal
---Theodore G. Marie Sørensd.*, their daughter, age 10
---Theodor Martini Sørens.*, their son, age 1, born in Arendal
[I believe that the * means that no last name was given originally; the name has been added.]

And her brother is living and studying with a painter in Grimstad, not that far away:
1865 census for 0904-Grimstad, Aust-Agder.
address: Vestregaden. Town of Grimstad.
---Lauritz F. Hanss., master painter, age 42, born in Christianssand
---Hanne Severine, nee Sørens., his wife, age 31, born in Grimstad
---Henrik Oscar Hans., son, age 13, b. Christianssand
---Bernhard Petter Theodor Hans., son, age 11, b. Christianssand
---Søren Petter Hans., son, age 7, Grimstad
---Ingvald Paaskeberg Hans., son, age 4, b. Grimstad
---Hans Hans., son, age 2, b. Grimstad
---Johan Rudolf Petters., his [Lauritz'] pupil/apprentice, unmarried, age 18, born in Tronhjem
---Mathilde Gurine Jacobsd., servant girl, unmarried, age 20, born in Christianssand
---Hans Jacob Hanss., his [Lauritz'] brother, worker, carpenter's apprentice, unmarried, age 37, born in Christianssand

Here is a rather mystical Olga in 1900. She may not be yours.
1900 census for 0915-Dybvaag, Aust-Agder.
Municipality: Dybvaag (krets no. 3, gardsnr. 17, bruksnr. 1)
Farm name: Østre Askerøen
All are Norw. citizens and members of the state church.
---Knud Niels., ship owner and farmer, widower, born 16.10.1820 in this census district
---Olga Peders., housekeeper, unmarried, born 1854 in Holt Ned
---Andrea Jens., unmarried servant girl, born 1878 in Gyland LM
---Anna Peders., seamstress, unmarried, visiting here temporarily from Lyngør, born 1851 in Holt
[One wonders if Knud is related to your Niels Olsen? One wonders if the visiting Anna is Olga's sister?]
[I believe that Holt means Holt near Tvedestrand, where the Holt Church was built in about 1100.]

This looks like the same Anna in 1865, but it doesn't tell us anything about her family:
1865 census for 0914-Holt.
School district: Næs Jernværk. Holt sogn (sub-parish), Holt prestegjeld (main parish). Farm name: Lien 1.
2 cattle, 1 pig.
All except the wife are born in Holt.
---Thor Gustavs., Digelarbeider med Jord, age 30
---Anne Axelsd., his wife, age 29, born in Fjekkefjord
---Axel Thors., son, age 7
---Gustav Thors., son, age 6
---Marie Thorsd., daughter, age 2
---Anne Pedersd., servant girl, unmarried, age 15


Hope this helps.
