Surnames: Tovsen & Halvorsdatter
After the Mother of my Grandfather, Peder Thorvald Tovsen, & his Brother, Ingolf Martinius Tovsen, had passed away; their Father, Johannes Tovsen, was married a 2nd time to Joran Halvorsdatter on Aug. 4, 1888 in Kongsberg. According to a 1900 Norway Census Report for Johannes & Joran Tovsen, Joran was born in 1857 in Numedal Bu. I've located the Numedal area of Norway on a map. It's located on the north side of the same river Kongsberg is on & is north west of Kongsberg in Buskerud County. The information I'm looking for in order to track down Joran's family in the 1865 Norway Census is the names of all the parishes and/or all the towns in the Numedal area. Any info would be appreciated.

Dear Delores,
I have got a kick of seaching for ancestors, both on my father's side and of my mothere\'s.
So, I have been fortunate enough to came in touch with Ronald, as you know. He has told med that he shares the information that we exchange with you.
Your mother, Helen, and Ronald's father Nolan, are my cousins, even though we never met. I am about youir age, however, because my father, Trygve was so much younger than your grandfather, Peder. You are the second cousin of my children, who are born between 1965 and 1970.
Jøran's full name was Jøran Halvorsdatter Storfossen, according to Roland's notes she was born 4 Aug. 1858, but I have thought she was born 1857. I have been able to trace her birthplace, which is Jondalen, Buskerud, which is part of Flesberg, I think. Unfortunately there were two Storfossen farms side by side. I know someone whose ancestors come from the other farm, but unfortunately not from the farm of my grandmother's family.
Some day I plan to look into the church records from that area, where there are several parishes. If I am able to trace her parents and so on, I will let Ronald know.
Best regards,

Surnames: Storfossen
I found Jøran Halvorsdtr. Storfossen in the church records for Flesberg in Buskerud. She was born January 13. 1857, christened on February 22. 1857. Her parents were Halvor Tostensen and Thora (or Thuri) Nirisdtr. They probably lived at a place called Hostvedt then. In the cencus for 1900 for Kongsberg I found the family living at Threatrumsgaden. Halvor is listed as Halvor Storfossane. 4 children are mentioned: Tosten, son 16 yrs., Thora, daughter, 13 yrs., Jøran, daughter, 9 yrs. and Gullek, son, 2 yrs.
Thora died between 1865 and 1888. Hope this is of some information.

Surnames: Olseon, Olsen
I thought the Olsen/Olsen family that I saw on 1920 census a bit confusing. It ws very difficult to read. But Irma and Ole H. Olson/Olsen were definately married by time of 1930 census and in Hazel Run. Irma was somewhere else in 1920 though I haven't checked to see if she was in the county in 1920 as Irma M. Martin. I found her sister Letha that somewhere else. and i thought the 1920 census was him, but will recheck it. It seems head of household was a Ramas or something female if i remember right?
On the ancestry.com tree I found it states his birthdate as September 14 1882. Census estimate birthdays different sometimes. sometimes it says they immg 1883 another time says immigrate 1882. He is suppose to be born norway.

I hope to find marriage at Hazel Run church or that county.I may find marriage. I am going to check watonwan also. And Iowa. Kossuth and Riverside.
Olsen Olesen or olson were suppose to be from Kongsberg norway. according to the tree. He died young at 28 feb. 1945. no living children between the two. Father Halvar Olson or Halvor Olsen.
Mother Karen Hove.
I looked last night and though I saw him at family search.org,listed Olesen birthdate around 1831, but i still have much more checking to do on this...

Ive been away from research a few days sick, so i may sound a bit messed and have to review what i read in the tree of the communities and what i tryed to find on my own.
I will read your links and emails.
Thank so much

I sent no email(s) to you. If you've received one or more direct emails purporting to be from me - then that is someone mispresenting themselves.
