Notes for Paul (Spouse 1)
The witnesses at their wedding was Tjostel Kjestad.

The Ancestral File entry has transposed his birthdate, it is 1797, not 1779, as he was 31 years old at his marriage. The age at death was given as 69 years, implying a 1794 birthdate.

Anc. File #: 119X-26G

Recheck the skifteprotokoll entry as I or it was obviously misread at the time.
