I'm pretty sure that this is Ole's family in the 1865 Norwegian census living on a farm then called Grindstuen in Sel parish of Vågå, Oppland, Norway.

"Jødda" is a feminine given name I've never seen before but it might sound a lot like Gjoa - often a d can be silent or soft in Norwegian.

And this "Jøda" died in Sel in December 1897 --

Ole and Jøda both had fathers also named Ole -- so at least two sons being named Ole (one after each grandfather) would have been well within typical Norwegian naming traditions.

The difference in ages seen for Ole Nergaard might simply be a matter of him having a very poor memory for dates...
