I am looking for information on the riisdhal farm also recorded as risdhal, risdal, and seen as risdal store. It is near Vigmostad, Vest Adger (Nordre Ondals). I am trying to trace my husband's familyPeder Torjesen ( shown as from Vigmostad)no dates (wife Anna Tostensdatter) no dates son: Elias Pedersen (born at Vigmostad from Risdhal) born June 28, 1820 (wife-Marteline Haaversdatter no dates) son: Peder Eliasen (born at Risdal Store)born August 01, 1849 by our records (according to Baptismal records Digitalarkivet 2 Peders first-born August 01, 1844, second born July 14, 1847) Peder Eliasen moved to Minnesota where he had one son Emil Eliason and four daughters. My husband is decended from Emil.I was hoping that you could help me make sense of this farm. As it appears in the 1865 census only. It doesn't seem to exist before or after the family were there. We are trying to see if we still have family in Norway, but are unable to ascertain what happened to the farm. We know that Peder Eliason and his sister Ingeborg left approximately 1870, we know that Elias Pedersen (the father) joined them at a later date and they lived in Minnesota. We do not know what happened to his wife. We have been told that only Anna and Elias Martin, and Ingeborg were alive as of the 1865 cencus. We don't know what happened to the rest of the family, so we thought if we traced the farm, it might help. I have been unable to go back any further than Elias Pedersen's baptism, to trace if Peder Torjesen also lived/farmed Risdal.Thank you for any assistance you may be able to give.

And I believe this must be the widow Anne Torstensdtr. in 1865. LenkeIf this is right Anne died at Vigmostad 01.02.1868 at the age of 84years. Rune Thorstensen

In the 1900 census for 1028 Nordre Undal you find an Elias Torsen on the farm Vraalstaad (sømand, born 1862, Amerikansk borger). Maybe he is Elias Martin Eliassen (5 years old in the 1865-census), who might have chosen the surname Torsen after is grandfather. Barbara Lose

Ole Eliassen Riisdal store died 23.12.1869 at the age of 18 - 'Ihielfrossen paa veien' = frozen to death on the way (Gravlagde i Vigmostad 1726-1942).In the same database you can see that Elias Pedersen also lost a baby daughter: Anna Eliasdatter Risdal died at the age of 16 weeks, 9.10.1851.Barbara Lose

Sorry, in entry no. 6 I was completely wrong about the identity of Elias Martin Eliassen. I found Elias Torsen (aged 4) in the 1865-telling for Nordre Undal as son of Tore Tores. on the farm Vraalstad. B. Lose

Hello Jan! You see, a lot of helpers at this Forum. Here is Marthe Lena's death record in 1883: LenkeElias Pedersen probably emigrated some time after this. And we know the fate of all the children of Elias and Marthe (Ma)lene. Peder b.1847 emigrated, Hans b.1849, not in the 1865 Census, Ole b.1852, froze to death, Ingeborg b.1848 emigrated, Elias Martin b.1861 emigrated.But what about Anna b.1855, in her 11th year in 1865? Did she stay in Norway, and has she got descendants here? Best regards Åse Kr.

I apologize for not checking back to this site, I kept getting emails with no attachments and then realized I had to get back into the forum. I was very surprised to find so much information. Some of it new to me, some of which I had but could not put into perspective until it was laid out with your kind assistance. I sincerely appreciate all your help, especially to Ase for suggesting I enter this forum. Thank you also to Yngve,Rune, and Barbara. God Jule!
