Notes for Rolf Johannesen (Enersvold)
I have not been able to find his marriage record in the Lom church records from 1749-1754, and they are readable (e.g. he and his father are seen acting ac Cautionares), so he may well have been married elsewhere, Vaga possibly. If the birthdate of 1735 for Ragnild is correct, then they were probably married very close to 1753, when their oldest child was born.

Rolf is seen acting as a Cautionare at the betrothal of Jacob Olsen Friisvold and Live Olsdatter on 14 September 175314 (b. 2, p. 446).

I entered his death data (and birth derived therefrom) with question marks as the church record has the entry as Rolf Hansen Enersvold, not Rolf Johannessen Enersvold. As the name Hans appears in the family, this is an especially relevant cautionary note. But I cannot find his death otherwise recorded before 1801, when the census shows his wife as a widow. I have looked at the Lom burial records from 1760 to 1801, except for the 1782-1786 interval when they apparently do not survive. Recheck the probate records, as his burial is underlined, as is often the case when there is a probate.
