My Great Great Grandfather, Peder Nielsen Brobakken, born 1819 in Biri, Oppland Norway was married to his second wife Karen Jensdatter (born November 1825) in 1850, and, before 1866 (when they emigrated to Canada/North America) he married or lived with third woman named Agnethe - also called Anna - Kristensdatter (born 1823).  I am trying to find out who this first woman is who was married to Peder Nielsen.  Am attaching ship manifest for ship named Manila which arrived Quebec City Quebec Canada in June 1866.  Also attaching 1870 USA Census taken in Benson Township (new) Swift County*, Minnesota, USA.  * Swift became new county in Minnesota in 1870.  Before 1870, it was northern part of Chippewa County, Minnesota.

On 26 December 1847 Peder Nielsen, son of Niels Pedersen [right father], age 27 1/2 [right age], married maiden Nicoline Christensdatter of Legaardseie [which is where Peder lived when he married Karen Jensdatter in 1850]. See https://www.digitalarkivet.no/kb20070201640294, entry 42.
