Moved to Bardu Valley (N. Norway) in 1791 and established Jevningen - one of the first 2 settlers (2 men partners) in the Bardu Valley of Norway

Translated by GpH -- John Kalbækken and Ole Brandsvoll were the first settlers in Bardu. For nearly a generation, from 1791 to about 1820, there were children of John and Ole who mostly cleared the land for new settlement. There was a simple house, shown in the picture, in which the two families lived. --------------------

Farm Names: John Simonsen built his own farm on Bardujord, called Elvevold, but this name fell away and was replaced with Kalbækken in memory of his home farm in Tynset.
