I find Thora Berg's parents also on the 1900 census, even though Thora is living as a foster daughter in Rødenes parish in Ostfold county. I thought she was a foster daughter maybe because someone had died, but this is not the case!

Census year: 1900
Municipality: Eidsberg
Municipality number: 0125
Name of domicile: Sandaas
Number of persons in this domicile: 8


Name Family status Marital status Occupation Birth year Place of birth Ethnicity
Marie Larsen svigermoder e Arbeiderske 1833 Trygstad Sm
Lars Johannesen hf g Arbeider 1852 Sverige
Thea Hansen hm g Arbeiderske 1867 Kristiania
Aagaat Larsen d ug Datter 1889 Eidsberg Sm
Karl Larsen s ug Søn 1891 Eidsberg Sm
Jenni Larsen d ug Datter 1893 Eidsberg Sm
Johan Larsen s ug Søn 1895 Eidsberg Sm
Aksel Larsen s ug Søn 1897 Eidsberg Sm

The owner of the place Sandaas, which was where Thora Berg was born, is Marie Larsen, she is liste as mother in law to Lars Johannesen born 1852 Sweden, and she is of course, because she is Thea Hansdatter's mother.

They have several children with them, using the last name Larsen, after their father Lars. I wonder what happened to have a 13 year old Thora Berg off living somewhere else, unless maybe the family was quite poor - and a 13 year old girl would be expected at that time in history to be off working, making money to either help the family or support herself.

Finding the history of the Sandaas farm in Eidsberg would be interesting to see what happened.

There is an Ostfold county query site,

The Miller Hans Johansen is dead. Maybe that is why the family would need money?
