About Anna Knudsdatter Wold

mtDNA haplogroup H5a1

from another researcher:

the church records for Åmotsdal in Seljord in Telemark (1815-1831): On 24 Jan.1819 Knut Persen Bekjord from Rollag marries Jøran Evensdtr. Åmodt (page 194)

Their daughter Anne is born 1 Nov 1819 and christened 30 Dec 1819 (page 11, #1 female christening under church year 1820).

So, Knut Persen was born in Rollag, but moved to Seljord in 1819 where he married Jøran Evensdatter Åmodt. Knut and Jøran lived at the Åmodt farm in Seljord for a few years, before moving back to Rollag.

translated and adapted from the farm book : Folk og fàr, by Skoger historielag:

Anne, who had been in the service of Westby at the farm Søndre Imjelt. She was the sister of Jon and Per Stallane, and came from Landerud in Rollag (Buskerud). About Anne it is told when she moved to Tørjevollen, she had walked all the way from Rollag. Not only that, but she had been walking and knitting, and in addition she had carried a pot to boil "prim" or something like whey in (primgryte, made of cast iron).
Anne also went to America (7 years after Jørn - aka Jørgen Oleson Wold) in 1875. In 1877-78 Jørn returned home, and a little after Anne also returned.  They now lived at Tørjervollen until Jørn died in 1892. Anne then moved to her daugther Olava, who now lived at Stubberud. This was in 1901, later Anne lived at/with? Anna Stubberud. 

The last person who lived at Tørjevollen was the son Anton, who had returned from America.
