[#53396] Looking for death record in Østfold for Jens Ludvig Johansen about 1906

Recommended Posts

Guest Diane Shotwell

My great grandfather, Jens Ludvig Johansen, drowned when he was out fishing in the fjords. He was living in Fredrikstad (or Moss) at the time. My grandmother was born November 10, 1896 and she was 9 years old at the time of her father's death, thus putting it in 1906 or late 1905. Jens was born June 16, 1872 in Fredrikstad. Were death records kept for someone 'lost at sea'? Thank you for any help you can give me.

They lived in Moss in 1900: Lenke I checked both the churchbooks from Moss (town) and Moss county from 1904 to 1907 included without finding him.I found one Jens Johannesen i 1906, but he was 8 years too old and did not die at sea. He was a carpenter, though.

Here is that person anyway:In the 'ministerial'-book, his birth-year is given between 1861 and 1865, so it's probably not yours: Kildeinformasjon: Østfold fylke, Bysoknet i Moss, Ministerialbok nr. II 4 (1902-1912), Døde og begravede 1906, side 429. Permanent sidelenke: [url="http://www.arkivverket.no/URN:kb_read?idx_kildeid=3080&idx_id=3080&uid=ny&idx_side=-424>Lenke Permanent bildelenke:

Mange mange tusen takk!! My father was born in Oslo and he recently turned 90 years old. He will be so pleased to finally know what happened to his grandfather. We did not even know if his body had been recovered and buried. Thank you again.

Does the place he drowned begin with a capital H? Husem/Husum or something like that?

I do not know the place where he drowned, but the listing of his death in the Fredrikstad parish register must be him. I had already found him in the 1900 Census, but maybe you can help me with a translation of 'Snedker ved Korn Møllebrug'. Was Korn Møllebrug the name of a factory or business of some kind? Is snedker the same as snekker? I have in my records that he was a furniture maker, but I'm not sure what my source was for that, so it may be wrong. Thank you for all your help.

'Snedker' is just the former spelling of 'snekker' - capenter, but it could also be a furniture maker. I doubt that is the case here, though, as I think Korn Møllebrug may just mean that he worked at a corn/flour mill. I would be very surprised if they gave such a name to a furniture shop!There was surely need for a carpenter at flour mills some 100 years ago.
