Notes for Karen Abrahamsdatter
Her father was called Abraham Falkums on her baptismal record. Falkum is the farm just to the southwest of Skien.

She is named in skifteprotokolls.202

Her death record gives her age as 44 years, 1 month, that is obviously a clerical error as she was aged 54 years, 1 month. The record says "Halvor Fjeldets kone Karen Abrahamsdatter . . . 44 1/12 aar."
Notes for Halvor (Spouse 1)
The pages with the christening records for 1743 are almost unreadable because of ink bleeding and the high contrast of the microfilm.

He was confirmed on "Sunday aft. Michelstag" [?] in 1758
Lars Olson fra Luksefjell 17 aer.
Halvor Olson ibid 16 aer
Ole Olson ibid 20 aer - this is not his younger brother.

Halvor and Karen were betrothed on 26 January 1768.

Halvor and Lars Olson were equally sharing Bø vestre in 1801, with 9 skins of land apiece. Halvor occupied Br. nr. 2 (l. nr. 113), which went on to his son Halvor Halvorsen after his death.

Very hard to read date of death precisely as it's on the dark corner of a page of microfilm. It is clearly in July, after July 7th, probably in the 10-19 July range and definitely not in August. The entry is # 69 for 1805 and he is given as "Halvor Olsson Fjeldet, age 62 1/12."

Third son named in his mother's estate, age 23 in 1766, so born circa 1743.203
