[#19888] Tosten Leversen and Astri Torgjesdatter birth and death info.

Recommended Posts

Guest John Knudsen

I'm seeking information about Tosten Leversen and Astri Torgjesdatter, my g-g-g-grandparents.The two most likely listings in the 1801 census seem to be: Tosten Levardsen - Vigedal #345, Tienestefolk, 15, at Roalqvam and Astri Torgiesdtr - Mandal #1660, Tienestepige, 21, at Berge Vest.Family Search International Genealogical Index notes the 29 November, 1810 marriage of Tosten Levertsen and Astri Torgjesdr at Mandal.Parish register 'Halse A-8' notes the 2 June, 1815 birth of a son Knud to soldier & farmer Tosten Leversen and wife Astrie Torgjesdatter, living at vestre Skogsfjord, and the 11 June, 1815 baptism. The register later notes the 25 September, 1817 birth of twin daughters Berthe and Rachel to cotter Tosten Lervertsen and his wife Astrei Torgjesdatter, of vestre Skogsfjord, and the 5 October, 1817 baptism.Family Search International Genealogical Index lists Torsten Lovasen as father of the groom at the 17 April, 1838 marriage of Knud Torstensen (my g-g-grandfather) , 22 and Elisabeth Sophia Tonnesdr, 23 at Hidra.I've been able to find no further references to Tosten or Astri to date. I'd be grateful for any information about these two individuals, with particular interest in birth and death records.Thank you,John Knudsen knudsenje@worldnet.att.net
