Notes for Knud Thorstensen (Brimi)
The witnesses at their marriage were Hans Ekle and L. Amundson Kolabaren [?]. Knud and Ronnaug's descendants are running the Brimi farm at the present time.

The 1886 tax list shows him at the Eisstensteigen farm: Gnr/Bnr 12/1, Matr. No. 14, Løbe No. 18, tax 0-0-20 old currency, 0.22 new currency. His son-in-law Jon Jonsen (Mo) had the main Brimi nordre farm at that date.

His son Peder was running the farm for him at the time of the 1900 Norwegian census. That census states that he was born in Vågå.207
Notes for Ronnaug (Spouse 1)
The godparents and witnesses at her christening were Ronnaug Over__ [?], Colbent Moe, Seval Kjæstad, Peder Lyngvedodegard, Ronnaug Kjæstad, Toro Ekle. Note that the family farm was called Laingen. Ronnaug was confirmed at Lom on 22 October 1848. She was living at the time of her mother's probate, the widow of Knud T. Brimie (the next farm over from Laingen).50

She traveled to America in 1898 with her son Hans and grandson John.
