I am trying to find out who the parents of Karoline Marie Gundersdatter are and would like to follow her family lines back.

 

I have the following information:

 

Karoline Marie is supposedly born either in Fjaere or Grimstad 9 nov 1841.

from family sources here in The United States.

 

Karoline Marie married Jens Gotfrid Smith in 1865 supposedly in Fjaere or Grimstad. Jens Gotfrid Smith was born 24 Feb 1840 in Ugerlose, Denmark

from family sources here in the United States.

 

Karolina & Jens had a daughter Jenny Fransiska who was born 2 nov 1865 in Grimstad and christened 10 dec 1865. The witnesses to the christening were: The mother, Marte Christine Ellingsen, Gunder Knudsen Vesoen, Snedkersvend Isak Tonnesen Berge and Handelsmand Terkel Jacobsen.

from Fjaere parish register, births 1865 entry No 175

 

Karolina & Jens had a son Gunder Christensen whi was born 7 feb 1868 in Grimstad and christened 1 Mar 1868. The witnesses to the christening were: The mother, Gunild Olsdatter Skaugum?, Smed Gustav Carlsen, Snedker Bernt Andreas Tallaksen and Terkel Knudsen

from fjaere parish register, births 1868 entry No 49

 

There was a daughter Anna Marie Mathilde who was supposed to have been born in Grimstad 6 mar 1870, however, I could not locate her in the parish register.

 

The next child Agnes Margrete was born in Minnesota 13 sep 1873.

 

In the 1865 census on Digitalarkivet.no I find the family in Vestregade in Grimstad listed as follows:

1432 5 1 Jens Gotfrid Smith?? Husfader Snedker g 26 m Danmark

1433 6 Karoline M Gundersd. hans Kone g 25 k Fjære Sogn

1434 7 Jenny Franciska Smith??* deres Barn ug 1 k Grimstad

 

Karoline M arie Gundersdatter dies in Cambridge Minnesota 17 oct 1902.

 

I hope somebody can help me solve this problem. Apparently the parish registers from 1826-1854 are missing.

 

My email address is : scangen@infowest.com

 

I sure appreciate any help I can get.

 

Thanks.

Birth of Anna Marie Mathilde, no 13

 

Many of the church books from Fjære were damaged by fire at the vicarage, I think.

 

 

Burial of their son Jens Smith, okt. 1864, no 83, buried 8 days old = born sept. 30 1864.

Thank you for the information about the death of the son born in 1864.

 

I am wondering if anyone has the bygdebok for Fjaere that covers the farm Vesoen, where a Gunder Gundersen was living in 1865

 

Here is what I found there:

 

576 5 Birketveit Fjære Fjære Vesøen 387a

3372 1 1 Gunder Gundersen hf Gaardb. og Selveier Fisker g 65 m Fjære

3373 2 Anne B. Knudsdatter hans Kone g 63 k Øiestad

3374 3 Knud L. Gundersen deres Søn Matros ug 24 m Fjære

3375 4 John M. Gundersen deres Søn Matros ug 19 m Fjære

3376 5 Anne K. Gundersdatter deres Datter ug 34 k Fjære

 

She could easily fit into this family, it just needs to be proven.

Hi! I'm sorry to tell you that we have no "bygdebok" for that part of Fjære, yet.....

I live quite near Vesøen, but that doesn't help us now.......

Hi Jarl,

 

Sorry to hear that.

 

Another thought is if I can find out when Gunder Gundersen died and then see if there is some sort of probate record available that would list his children.

 

What does everybody else think about this idea?

The witness "Gunild Olsdatter Skaugum?" must be living at the farm Skaregrøm. that is almost in the middle of Grimstad city.
