OLE JENSEN BREKKEJORDET

Utreist med/ Emigrated on:

Utreist til/ Emigrated to: USA - 1847.


Ole Jensen Brekkejordet: Ole was born ca 1809, presumably in Gjerpen, but I have not found him anywhere.
Nor have I found his marriage to Karen Clemetsdatter, who came from Holla, where she was born ca 1795-96.
She had earlier been married to Knud Olsen Sølland, but he died early. She was a servant-maid at Brekke in Gjerpen when she first married Knud in 1827.

Note: Look in Familie 15 - N. Brekke 1845. They both came from Holla in Telemark and there married (Gard StrÝm).

Knud and Karen had at least 2 children:
Ole, born 1827. Drowned in the Skien-river and was buried May 29, 1836.
Christian, born 1828.

Karen had 1 child with Ole:
Knud, born Nov 26, 1834 at Nordre Brekkejordet.

In house no 14 under Nordre Brekke we find the family in census 1845:

Ole Jensen, watchman, age 36
Karen Klemetsdatter, age 52
Christian Knudsen, his step-child, age 16
Knud Olsen, son, age 11
