Marthe Aslaksdatter Fossum

Utreist med/ Emigrated on: 

Utreist til/ Emigrated to: USA - 1846.

Marthe Aslaksdatter Fossum:  According to the emigration section in the church-registers, she is born ca 1818.
The only Marthe I have found, is Marthe Aslaksdatter, born Jan 20, 1818 by parents miner Aslak Pedersen under Bøe and Ingeborg Sigurdsdatter at Børønningen(A) under Bø.

In 1845 I find a Marthe Aslaksdatter who is a servant maid on the Fossum Mansion. Fossum is owned by Ernst Løvenskiold and is the location for the Fossum Ironworks.

There is no absolute proof that this is the correct person, but pretty likely.
