About Jens #18 Olsen

Gjerstad bygdebok, vol. 4, (p. 488-489) shows Jens Olsen, b. 1807 to Ole Olsen Holte & his #2 wife Ingebor Olsdatter Holte; Jens & Kari had many children: Mari b. 1829, Ola b. 1831, Ingebor b. 1833, Marie b. 1836, Anders b. 1838, Thor b. 1842, Jens b. 1844, ANNE b. 1846, Rannei b. 1848 & Ingeborg Marie b. 1852. Bjorndalen, Bjonndalen, also called Bjynndalen (the story was that when Jens was not home, wife was home alone & a bear came to the door; thus the name Bjynndalen). The bygdebok also indicates that Jens must have sold the land to an ironworks, with the understanding that he & his wife could live (& probably farm) there for their lifetimes. More specific dates/information also found in Gjerstad church records.
