Research Notes for Marit Johannesdattir
7 (b. 1, pp. 2-3)
Notes for Amund (Spouse 1)
Amund and his wives had thirteen children. Mary, the wife of Louis Halvorson, was the oldest child. Thordson3 did not realize that he had two wives.

His farm was worth $1500 in 1870 and he had a personal estate of $475.

There is some confusion caused by the 1895 Minnesota census return. It lists Peder Knutsen, age 68, born Denmark, farmer, in state and locality 26 years. Anne Knutsen, age 23, born Minnesota, housekeeper. Marry Knutsen, age 14, born Minnesota, Ore Halvason, age 1, born Minnesota. *** Could this be the mother of Ore Halvorson? If so, what is the relationship to the older Mary Knutson wife of Olaus? ***
