This record is hard to decipher, I'm wondering if I can get some help translating for the 2nd record on the first page.
http://www.arkivverket.no/URN:kb_read?idx_kildeid=11630&...

Died- 17? Jan 1849
Buried- 20 Jan 1849
Name- Nils Ingebritsen ? ?
?- ?
Age- 80 years

I've seen 2 names for his farm, Juvet & Tvete. I'm not sure which is correct.

I think you've read all those details correctly as they were written. But the farm name looks more like Haave or Haare. A man of 80 years may well have been living on a different farm at the end of his life than the places where he lived when younger.

The word entered in the column for "Stand, Haandtering og Opholdssted" looks much like lægdslem or legdslem so perhaps at the end of his life he was a "welfare recipient" residing on the Haare farm in Røldal.

It is not uncommon for someone to have lived on several different farms through their years, especially if they didn't own a farm of their own.

The 1801 Norwegian census indicated Nils, wife and 3 young sons living on the farm Tvete in Røldahl (Røldal) parish then part of Saledahl (Suldal) clerical district in Rogaland.

Nils is listed with the occupation/status of "Husmand med jord".

Another database available at the Digitalarkivet website is "Vigde i Røldal sokn i Suldal prestegjeld 1780-1816" and it also appears to capture a mention of Nils from his marriage record in Røldal, -

The book "Røldal bygdebok." by Knut and Alma Dalen may provide more information - but of course as a secondary source should be checked carefully.
