About Knut Andreas Bendiksen Ramstad

Farmed Ramstad bnr 7 from 1812 to 1839, and half of bnr 7 to 1841. As a soldier he was 1.74 meters tall (5' 8 1/2", which was tall for the time) (Sykkylven IV 60). In 1865 he was a pensioner living with his daughter and son-in-law (census).

He was tall for that time, and very strong. He was called “Store-Knut”, i.e. “Tall-Knut”:

Ole Gustav Ramstad fortalde dette om "Store-Knut", som han var kalla, då han var heime på besøk frå Amerika sommaren 1993: Svigerson Sivert og sonesonen Peter Johan heldt på å ta ei veite. Der var då ein stor stein som dei heldt på med vøg for å få opp, men det var vanskeleg. Då kom "Store-Knut" som då var gamal: "ka e det døkke styre med?" Han bad dei flytte seg, steig ned i veita, og lyfta steinen opp - åleine!

Han var kjend for å ha kjempekrefter.
