Notes for Abraham Nielsen (Falkum)
Abraham and Ingeborg were betrothed on 29 May 1744.

The bygdebok account has him dying circa 1761 and his widow continuing on to circa 1782. He was farming Falkum Sondre at the time of the 1762 "Extra Tax" census, which matches what I found in the church records.

Note that there is also an Abraham Nielsen (Feldet), with wife Margarethe Eriksdatter, who was born at about the same time as Abrham Nielsen (Falkum), so don't get confused when looking at the records. Feldet was buried 12 August 1784, aged 70 1/4 years.

Notes for Ingeborg (Spouse 1)
There were two Ingebor Halvorsdatters born in Solum in 1714 (sigh). The first was christened on the 16th Sunday post Trinity, daughter of Halvor Gisholt, which is interesting as Abraham Nielsen is supposed to be from Gisholt. The second was christened on the Sunday 2 Advent, daughter of Halvor Tostensen [???] from Herve [???] (b. 2, p. 4)
