translated from Folk og fàr, by Skoger historielag. Plass 49 - Rønnehue:

Olava was married to a -gjørtler- craftsman who made things in or from brass - Ole Johansen. They came from Rebbansbakken in Drammen, and lived for some time at Vestmannsbråtan in Konnerud (Skoger), thereafter some time at Heia, where one belive Ole died. Olava settled at Rønnehue in the end of the 1870. In the summer she worked as a dairy maid, and kept (hired) cows ,from other people, in the summer pasture. (Maybe she earned the milk, and could sell the butter and cheese.This is my comment.) Otherwise she and the children chopped wood (for fire) and dragged it to collect-places?, places where they collected wood.

It is told that Olava was fit/vigorous, and it came in good use.

Olava and Ole got the following children: 1. Anton b. 1866, married to Johanne Treholdt, sister of Hellik Lie. 2. Johan, died young at Rønnehue. 3. Inga, married to Karl Skullerud. 4. Jørgen (Dalen). 5. Anne b. 1872, lived at Stubberud (see Anne Tørjevoll). 6. Olaf b. 1888, lived at Åserud from 1914, and at Langum from 1927. 7. Karl, died comparatively young.
