Medical Notes for Jon Jonsen (Mo)
He was vaccinated against smallpox in 1862.
Misc. Notes
He was confirmed at Lom on 11 July 1875 and that record supplied his birthdate. The witnesses at the wedding were Hans P. Ekle and Rolf Enervold.

He was the resident farmer at Brimi nordre on the 1886 tax list: Gnr/Bnr 13/1, Matr. No. 15, Løbe No. 16, tax 6-4-1 old currency, 11.90 new currency.35

Given that his youngest child was born in Minnesota, he might have died there and then his widow and children returned to Lom. I did not find his death recorded at Lom through 1898.
