In Reply to: Bonsak-Hilda Berg Children: Hans and Carl by Miles Lowe of 18113

This isn't exactly what you asked for, but it looks like a good match for Bonsak on the 1865 census with his parents:

Census year: 1865
Municipality: Leksvik
Municipality number: 1718
Name of domicile: Brandaas
Number of persons in this domicile: 7


Name Family status Marital status Occupation Birth year Place of birth Ethnicity
Olaus Olsen Husfader g Husmand med Jord 1820 Lexvikens Prgj.
Berit M Andreasdatter hans Kone g 1823 Lexvikens Prgj.
Alexander Olaussen deres Søn ug 1853 Lexvikens Prgj.
Josef Olaussen deres Søn ug 1855 Lexvikens Prgj.
Bonsak Olaussen deres Søn ug 1863 Lexvikens Prgj.
Olaus Olaussen deres Søn ug 1865 Lexvikens Prgj.
Gjette M. Olausdatter deres Datter ug 1861 Lexvikens Prgj.

Brandaas farm, where his father Olaus Olsen is a tenant farmer with a bit of land to raise crops on. All born in Lexviken (Leksvik) parish.
Mother is Berit M. Andreasdatter.
There are 4 sons and one daughter on this census. It is possible that there were more kids in this family, perhaps older children who had left, and maybe younger children born after 1865, since even at 42, the mother had just had a child in 1865.

Here is a Norwegian who has posted the family genealogy online, which includes Bonsak.

Bonsak's parents were married with 9 children.

The genealogist who posted it is shown on this page:

I can't find an email for him or a way to contact him, but there is a snail mail address.

Torstein Lerstad
Arendalsvegen 32
4735 Evje

Olga Marie was born in Norway it appears, from Torstein's information
