About Anna Kristine Olsdatter Stubberud

recollections of her great nephew:

"Stubby" was my father's aunt. My father was christened Henry to honour Mr.H.Lee. I am well past 80 and I grew up with Aunt Anna living on the upper floor of my parents' little country house. She rented two tiny rooms. No bathroom. She lived there for many years. The last years of her life she lived in Mjoendalen, a small town west of Drammen. Also in Mjoendalen she rented two tiny rooms. I knew Aunt Anna until she passed away. She was dear to us.

With $75,000 Aunt Anna would have been a very very wealthy woman in Norway. I do question this information. I knew her from when she returned from N.Y. until she died and I never noticed any sign of wealth. On the contrary, once a month she would pick up her little pension and she would survive on that little money. Never bought new clothes, never traveled.

Mr.H. Lee met Aunt Anna during one of his several visits to Norway. I do not know if she was married then. I do know her husband passed away and having no children she became the sole heir of a nice farm. My father told me that H.Lee worked very hard trying to convince Aunt Anna that she should come to N.Y.

She must have sold the farm before leaving for N.Y., so she did not come empty-handed to the Lee family. I am sure Mr. Lee invested the money wisely. Coming back to Norway she had no farm, and to my knowledge, no money.

I remember Aunt Anna as a very religious woman. She was softspoken. She never uttered one critical word about any one of the Lee family, or any one else for that matter. She never said so, but I am pretty sure her years in N.Y. were unhappy ones.

When Anna died, she left little behind. Her wedding ring, a tiny wristwatch (not working) in white gold. No money. Not enough to have her buried. Her little belongings were sold at an auction to to pay for her burial . She left me her Bible.
