Looking for family from Kjelland, Sokndal

Recommended Posts

Linda Coleman

My great-grandfather is Anton O. Kjelland.  He was born in 1870 in Kjelland, Norway.  His parents were Ole Andreas and Vibekke.  He came to America in 1888.  His wife, my great-grandmother, is Inga Olson.  She was born in 1879 in North Dakota, United States.  Her parents were Tollef Olsen and Severena Gabrielsen Pedersen.  Tollef was born in Stavanger, Rogaland.  Severena was also born in Stavanger, Rogaland.

 

When I was a child, my grandmother told me I had family still living in Kjelland.  I would like to meet or contact any family or cousins that are still in Norway.

 

I would be thankful for your help.

If you or someone could cheque up a farm history book for Sokndal that would probably answer your questions about living relativs or descendents.

Since both Anton and his parents and all his siblings(?) emigrated to the US, it might be that you have to look for family that did not emigrate from Sokndal in Rogaland county. 

 

As far as I can see, the parents of Ole Andreas Larsen were Lars Olsen and Anne Olsdatter:

 

Ole Andreas, born 1843

Olaus, born 1845

Karl Tobias, born 1848

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NCBS-638

 

Here is Ole and Anne on Kjelland in 1865:

Lars Olsen and his family on Kjelland 1875:

One of Lars Olsen's sons was Conrad Larsen. Is he identical to this Conrad Kjelland?
