Recommended Posts

Hello, I am trying to find information for Edward Eriksen Rongholt from Norway. I found the following information regarding his life in the USA but can't find a record of Edward or his family that match his birth date in Norway. It is believed Edward, his  father Erik and his his family immigrated (circa 1861) . 

Hei, jeg prøver å finne informasjon for Edward Eriksen Rongholt fra Norge. Jeg fant følgende informasjon om livet hans i USA, men kan ikke finne en oversikt over Edward eller hans familie som samsvarer med fødselsdatoen hans i Norge. Det antas at Edward, faren Erik og hans familie immigrerte (ca. 1861).

 

Edward Eriksen Rongholt: https://www.ancestry.com/discoveryui-content/view/67195359:60525

   Birth Date: 2 Apr 1857

   Birth Place: Torpa, Nordre Land kommune, Oppland fylke, Norway

   Death Date: 12 Nov 1922

   Death Place: Buffalo County, Wisconsin, USA

 

Erik Olsen Rongholt: https://www.ancestry.com/discoveryui-content/view/189584924:60525

   Birth Date: 4 Apr 1802

   Birth Place: Norway

   Death Date: 22 Mar 1876

   Death Place: Buffalo County, Wisconsin, USA

 

Any information regarding Edward or Erik from when they lived in Norway would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thanks / Takke!

Mitch

Hello

 

I guess this would be a really good candidate https://www.digitalarkivet.no/kb20070206650393 

No 74. Edvard, born 02.04, bapt. 14.06 in Aamot church, his parents was Erik Olsen and Ingeborg Andersdtr Nørstelid

Thank you Magne N.G. Hagen-Pettersen! It does look like a very good candidate since the birth date matches. I have been searching through the Norwegian Census records and found many Erik Olsen's but none with wife Ingeborg or son Edvard or Edward that are close to his age. Any suggestions where to look?

While looking for Ingeborg Andersdatter, I’ll post candidates I find here:         NB! Unverified!

This may be that candidate’s father in 1801-census:

Ingeborg Andersdatter still at Hovde at her confirmation:

(According to the  marriage entry, Erik Olsen were born at Brendehoug under Hestekind. I have not found this location yet.)

Thank you, this is so helpful! Ole Eriksen is my Great-Great-Great-Grandfather. My father always told me that when my Great-Grandfather immigrated to America he stayed with his uncle, which I believe is Erik Olsen. It's been difficult to trace because Erik and his son Edward went by the last name of Rongholt while my Great-Grandfather went by Rognholt. But I did find that Ole Eriksen was born on the Rognholt farm. However, it lists Erik being born in 1804 while all other info lists it as 1802. Also it doesn't show his wife or children which is why I struggled to find the family.
