Lars Olsen Doksrød: He was born
January 21 1826 on Bratsbergkleven near the town Skien. He was the son of
Ole Isaksen Holm and Anne Larsdatter.
In 1845 we find the family on the little farm Hagen under Doxrød.
Ole Isaksen, tailor, married, age 46.
Anne Larsdatter, married, age 50.
Lars, son, age 19.
Anders, son, age 14.
Christen, son, age 11.
Anne Kirstine, daughter, age 9.
Lars emigrates in 1847, and marries in Koshkonong to Ingeborg Nielsdatter,
born 1823 in Siljan parish. Siljan is the nabouring parish to Gjerpen.

Illinois, I have got the following:
