Our grandmother Karoline Jonasdatter b. 15 Apr 1876 on the Rudlang farm, christened on 21 May 1876 in Ulnaes Church (She & sis used the surname 'Belgum' in America). Parents: Jonas Kristian Johannesen, & Sidsel Olsdatter Rundlingseie. According to oral history and her father's history in Tysnes bygdebok, Karoline went to live with her mother's relatives in Valdres, after her mother's death in Nov 1876.
IS THERE ANY INFO AVAILABLE ABOUT THE RELATIVES WHO RAISED HER AND THE FARM LIFE?
I know she went to America in about 1894, & married there in 1895; had 9 children - 2 who died in infancy. Our mother was #7 of the 9.
