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.35

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.
