Misc. Notes
The godparents and witnesses at her christening were Care Overlie, Torkild Oyegaard, Niels Qvale, Anne Skaanser, Arnne Turine [?] Gur____, Ingebor Oye Guy____. The farm name is hard to decipher.

Else was confirmed in Lom on 25 August 1839. The confirmation record has her christened on 6 December 1824, an error. The confirmation record (b. 44) has her birthplace as Øye sondre. She had a son, Lars Larson, born 1852, from a first relationship. The latter was living with them at the time of the 1865 Norwegian census. He went with them when they left Lom in 1870. She left Lom, Norway, on 26 May 1870, with her family.

The date of her death is from her headstone in the cemetery.
Notes for Rønnaug (Spouse 3)
Kolden has additional data under the Andvord sygard farm (G.r. 69-1).247
