I have always heard that 2 of my great grandparent's children died in Norway from eating poison wild flowers.Their names were Aushing/Oushing and Alf Pettersen /Pederson.I think these are both boys name? I am not sure of the correct spelling?Their parents were Peter Bernhard Petterson/Pedersen born in Oslo Oct 4 1872 and Caroline Elise F Amundsen (Johansen)-born in Oslo 19 July 1875Is there anyone who can help me check if this story is correct?Mange Takk Janice

Hi Janice!I suppose these are your great grandparents and their children Magnus and Ella in Oslo 1900 Lenke.The name Aushing/Oushing may well have been Eugene which was a fairly common name in Oslo around 1900. The poisenous wild flowers from which the two boys died may hav been selsnepe, a kind of hemlock growing alongside creeks and lakes. Laburnum is also possible, mainly growing in gardens. Astrid

Takk AstridYes, I had seen Peter & Caroline & magnus & Ella on that link before. But it doesn't show the other children so I assume they died before 1900.I think the family belong to the Sagene parish in Oslo so I was hoping someone on the internet had access to the records from 1892- 1899??I am guessing that Oushing & Alf might have been born in the between years as no children were born for 7 yrs? Is there anywhere on the internet to research these death records?Takk for the plants information , it seems like such a shame for children to died this way but I guess they would have just gone to sleep and not awaken.I hope hoping someone out there can help?Janice

The name Eugene was often pronounced like 'au'sheen' (in Norwegian), with a strong emphasize on the first part of the name (well, this was difficult to clarify in English). I am sure Astrid is right, the pronounciation would become something lik 'Aushing'.

PS: yes Alf and Eugene are boys' names. You must write the name as Eugene, as 'aushing/au'shen' are only attempts to express how it was spoken (in a rather vulgar way, but that is how my farming father (from near Oslo) pronounced it...) It was never written like that. Eugene it is !

...or Eugen. There are 183 living Norwegians named Eugen, and 29 Eugene.

If you in the 1900-census seek for first-names starting with 'aus' or 'eus' you will find a lot of ways of spelling the originally French name 'Eugène' (In American: Gene).

I think the cause of death given in column 9 is a doctor's diagnosis written in latin. The third word is 'febris' - fever. The first word might be 'gastroenteritis' - a stomach inflammation.

Mange tusen takk Per Harald & AnneI thought I would find Eugene/ Aushing listed on the burial page too? But I don't see him?Is Ellef's middle name Bernholt or Bernhart?? (Peter 's middle name was Bernhart)It appears burial was 27 Dec 1898 & Ellef was only 1 yr old ,it would have been so sad to lose 2 little boys at the same time.Caroline & Peter had my grandmother 15 Sept 1899 so she must have gotten pregnant in December 1898 also.I still can't find when Caroline & Peter got married ?? I was told they took banns on 27 March 1896.Their first child Magnus Olaf was born Nov 5 1892 & they lived at different addresses at that time.Peter immigrated in April 1902 & Caroline & children in Mar 1907(100 years ago this year)bye for now Janice:)

Hi!Ellef died 16/5-1900 and was buried on May 25th so he should be 3 years old when he died. I looked for Eugene but could not find him dead 1898-1901. I read 'Ellef Bärnholt' in the baptism and 'Ellef Bernholt' in the burial records.You can find Magnus Olaf's baptism in Sagene here (#18 Lenke). His parents were not married at the time.Regards, Per Harald
