Notes for Karen Hansdatter
She is listed as Karen Hansdatter on the bethrothal of 17 April 1766 and in the marriage record. Her death record is given as "Niels Moes kone [wife]", age 43.

Other sources list her as Karen Jensdatter.
Notes for Niels (Spouse 1)
He was confirmed in Gjerpen on the Sunday after Michelsdag in 1755, age 17. (the page number is hard to read).

As usual, there are a lot more details to be determined from his probate, but it is hard to read, also as usual. It appears quite likely that there is some duplication in the children for the different mothers, i.e., some of the children listed under the second wife are in fact duplicates from the first wife. Recheck the probate.177

Niels and Gunnild were betrothed on 15 August 1779.

He may have had a yet earlier wife, as the 1762 "Extra Tax" census shows that he was married, but did not have any children older than age 12.64
