  1. Eg har i dag motteke denne meldingi frå ei gamal vennine i California, men der eg no oppheld meg, har eg vanskar meg å hjelpa ho vidare. Kanskje nokon har høve til å hjelpa meg (og ho)? Eg takkar so mykje på førehand for alle gode tips! I sent an invitation to the tree in question. As an introduction, the area of the research is on Highway 101. In theory the road runs from San Diego into Oregon in the Coast ranges. In practice the part of the highway running north of San Francisco, is not great highway as it runs through narrow river valleys from the Russian River to the Smith River near Crescent City. It follows each river as it runs north, then runs through rugged mountains until if finds another river to follow. It's beautiful country but for Eureka only being 300 miles north of San Francisco, it's shortened it's journey to only six hours since 2010 when they finally bypassed a part that was only gravel. When I was a girl it took the better part of 12 hours. In many places the road is narrowed by old growth forest on both sides, but there are also areas so close to the rivers that they flood every time heavy rainfall occurs and others that are prone to land and rock slides. In 1890 they hadn't built a railroad (since abandoned) so if you were going by land it was a three day stagecoach ride. Most people who went from San Francisco to Eureka did it by ship along with most of the goods for sale in the whole area. Mostly the area was supported by lumber harvesting and milling. Eureka was a thriving town but the areas around were what was left after all the trees were removed. The banks in Eureka decided to sell some of that land which couldn't be sold to anyone in California. It was too remote. It was served by ship and by a three day journey by stagecoach...if the weather cooperated. So they turned to Europe. They turned to some dissatisfied farmers from a cluster of villages around Njemegian and Arnheim. First and foremost these were Catholic and solidly middle class. They felt they were second class citizens because vital records were recorded by the Protestants. The land agents in Europe told the prospective colonists that their household goods (down to clothes) were old fashioned and should be sold. They all bought passage on the Maasdam. One family, the Groenenbooms was in second class. Everyone else was in steerage. They landed in New York and made their way across the US by train, then to Eureka by coastal packet. There's a news story about how all the Eurekans came out to watch the Dutch land, like it was a parade in September 1890. They had sunk most of the money they had into land none of them had seen in the steep hills and valley now only an hour south of Eureka. My cousin's maternal grandmother was the first baby born in the new Dutch Colony called 'Fruitland'. The immediately set work clearing stumps from the clear cut, planting trees and building drying yards. In 1893 they lost the leader of their colony when he tried to cross a river in flood. By 1900 the land had been foreclosed on. Some of the families went to work in the lumber industry, others into dairies and cheese making. When the time came for the children to start marrying, there were few choices. There were almost no other Dutch except their own colony. Most married other Catholics, mostly Italians, Swiss and Slavs. The next generation didn't even marry Catholics but did marry other Californians who were first, second or third generations from Europe. The couple I was asking about had a son, Oscar who married Marie Bush (originally Van den Busch), the daughter of one of the Fruitland colonists. In trying to track down Oscar, I got involved in figuring out all the Olsens in Humboldt county...who came from everywhere in Northern Europe. I hit pay-dirt when I found Oscar's parents marriage record as it gave father's names of both parties and where they were born. I would be nice if they'd been more particular about Johanna.

  2. Har ei Ingeborg Olsdatter gift med Jørgen Jansen Gulseth fra Gjerpen 4 november 1818. Nr 32 https://www.digitalarkivet.no/kb20051011010150 12 mars 1819 føder hun sønnen Ole Jørgensen (senere Jerensen etter imigrasjon til USA) Hun gifter seg altså 4 november . Kirkeboka er de svært sparsommelige med opplysninger og det står ingen fedre nevnt. Jeg finner henne heller ikke innflyttet eller utflyttet fra verken Gjerpen eller Sandsvær. Men har funnet 2 kandidater. Ingeborg Olsdatter Bæver her f.i Kongsberg. https://www.digitalarkivet.no/kb20051011010150 Og Ingeborg Olsdatter fra Grans Eie https://www.digitalarkivet.no/kb20051011010150 I f.t 1835 her på Gulseth https://www.digitalarkivet.no/kb20051011010150 Hun dør 14 mai 1857. Nr 25 https://www.digitalarkivet.no/kb20051011011164 Jeg har sett noen trær som har henne skrevet som Bæver, og har leita etter spor her. Problemet er at når det gjelder barnas navn så er alle sønnene oppkalt etter mannen Jørgen Jansens familie. Ingeborg heter Olsdatter og det er nok den eneste forbindelsen jeg finner til Ole. Jeg legger ved lenke til sønnene sine dåp. Ole døpt 12.4.1819 øverst til venstre: https://www.digitalarkivet.no/kb20051011010057 Børre Jørgensen (Borre/Borvuhg Jerensen i USA) Nr 22 venstre side https://www.digitalarkivet.no/kb20051011010074 Jan Jørgensen Gulseth (Flyttet til Fosnes min tippoldefar) døpt 6 april 1823 Nr 44 venstre side https://www.digitalarkivet.no/kb20051011010097 Andreas Jørgensen Gulseth Døpt 21 august 1825 Nr 149 https://www.digitalarkivet.no/kb20051011010285 Fredrik Jørgensen født og døpt 24 juli 1828 (tvilling, dør som liten) Nr 119 https://www.digitalarkivet.no/kb20051011010344 Christian Jørgensen f.24 juli 1828 tvilling står rett under Fredrik Fredrik f. I 1831 døpt 8 februar 1831 Nr 151 https://www.digitalarkivet.no/kb20051011010605 Jørgen Jørgensen døpt 16 august 1835 nr 82 https://www.digitalarkivet.no/kb20061128090011 De fikk ingen døtre. Heller ingen spor i faddere. Har prøvd å leite opp skiftet etter Ole Larsen Bæver, men finner det ikke. Han døde nok i 1804. Det står både Sandsvær og Kongsberg i kirkebøkene. Ingeborg fra Gran er jo født i Sandsvær og Ingeborg fra Bæver grunn hører jo til Kongsberg. Alle kirkebøkene er svært sparsommelige som skrevet og jeg finner henne ikke inn eller utflyttet. Noen som har vært borti henne før? Og har noen ideer om hvem av disse "min Ingeborg" kan være? Mvh Siv Storø
