Anton Antonson Skien, Telemark, Norway

Recommended Posts

Hello all; forgive me, I don't speak norwegian. Found out about your site through family tree magazine.

 

Looking for 2nd great grandfather, Ant(h)on Ant(h)onson born about 1871 in Skien, Telemark, Norway; married Hannah or Annie Olson. Anthon died bet 1921-1922 in America. Anna was born 24 Mar 1872 in Skien, Telemark, Norway, according to death record. parents' name on record were listed as Joseph Skien and Annie Olson. I have no information on Anthon's parents other then the census below.

 

Anton and Annie had 5 children-3 born in Norway:

 

Albert Antonson 16 Nov 1899 Oslo

Mary Olive Antonson 22 Nov 1900 Oslo

Rolf or Ralph Antonson born around 1902

 

they imigrated in 1903 on the ship St. Olaf to Fosston, Minnesota.

 

Here is Anton in 1875 Skien census, living with mother's parents:

 

1875 Skien Census

3657 4 1 Nils Larsen m hf (Logerende) g Bjælkehugger 1809 Gjerpen Pr. b 1ste Etage

3661 8 Anne Nilsen k d 1861 Gjerpen Pr. b 1ste Etage

Any help appreciated!

Thanks for finding the images. Could you please translate the records? I don't read norwegian. You said side 31? Do you mean number 31? the page ends at 25.


Oops, posted too soon. deeply apologize.

Wow! Thanks so much! It wouldn't suprise me if that was his grandmother that was his godmother. Seems odd that it wouldn't be someone younger. Does it show ages of parents at time of Anton's birth? Too bad that E***Stone name is unreadable. is that the name of the farm he was living on?

Anton was born out of wedlock. The baptize record reads:

 

Born 23 August, baptized 29 August: Anton, born out of wedlock ("uægte"). The mother is Maren Nilsdatter, and she has listed Hans Anton Enertsen as father.

 

The last column lists the witnesses to the baptism: Just (that's a man's name) Sørensen, Bent Gundersen, John Gundersen, Marie Gundersen and Gunhild Olsdatter.

 

The 1875 census lists that his mother's father is named Nils Larsen and his mother's mother is named Marie Larsen. Anton's role in the household is "son of daughter" ("dattersønn").

 Too bad that E***Stone name is unreadable. is that the name of the farm he was living on?

 

No, Enertsen is a patronymic. It means that Hans Anton's father probably was called Enert or Einar as his first name. They lived in "Nordre Brekkejordet", which is a part of the Skien city.

Thanks for all your help! Wonder how far back I could go with this research? Also have to wonder how many kids Nils and Marie had, since in 1865, they have a 21 year old daughter and some kids under 10....

Correction to my transcription: Anton's mother was called Marianne.

 

Since the children are born in Gjerpen, you're in luck, because the baptize records are transcribed and searchable.

Wow! This is so great! I'm very grateful!


Stian- Cool link. Although it says 1815 as the earliest date, most of the records seem to start in the 1830s. Darn, Was going to try and find Marie Gjoran Gunnersdatter's birth in 1815/1816.

Try this link. (In Norwegian, though). Google Translate is your friend :-)

A quick Norwegian genealogist language course:

 

Døpte = Baptized

Fødte = Born

Vielser = Marriages

Innflytting = Moving into parish

Utflytting = Moving out of parish

Døde = Dead

Begravede = Buried

The father's name may be Hans Anton Enertsen or Hans Anton Evertsen; the n and v are hard to distinguish. However, I find a Hans Anton born in Gjerpen 1855 in Gard Strøm's register:

 

Hans Anton (Tvilling), 4/4-1855, Skipper Ernst Stribolt og Karen Marie, Austad.

 

If this is the same person, the patronym should be Ernstsen, but that is also often written as "Erentsen" which is very similar to "Enertsen". This guy is very young to become a father in 1871, but such things happen.

That's a little better. Still don't see any Maries or Gjorans that were born in 1815/1816....


Leif- That's an interesting match. My Anton was born in 1871, and his mother was born in 1842. Could she really have had a child in 1871 with a male who was 16? Seems a bit scandalous for the period....


Stian-

 

I have danish roots as well. Seems a lot of the names in the record appear to be spelled the same. LOL

Age 29 and 16? That would be uncommon, but you never know ...

 

A little genealogy warning about unmarried women giving birth and naming the child's father in the 19th century: Sometimes it could be convenient for the female to name a person that just recently had left the parish in stead of the real father in order to keep a low profile in the local community. It could be due to adultery or shame. These cases can only be solved by a DNA profile matching.

Stian-Thanks! Good to know. Naming a 16 year old does just cry scandal, and doesn't seem like it'd be something to do if they wanted to avoid shame though.

One of you wanted to know where they were in 1900 Census; I came across this:

 

Census year: 1900

Municipality number: 0806
Street name: Kamperhauggade
Street number: 20
City district:
House owner:
Number of flats: 1

I alsosee there's an Anton Antonson in Hill River Township, Polk County, MN in 1895. Could he have immigrated twice?
