To be able to find documents and/or history about the family you have to know WHERE in Norway they lived and died.

With at least an approximate birth year, given name and patronymic name for the father of Gabriel we are able to search for him in the 1865 Norwegian census databases. He appears here - a widowed lodger residing on a farm called Engedal in Fjotland district of Vest-Agder, Norway.

His son Gabriel is in the city of Kristiansand, Vest-Agder for the 1865 census. He is in the military and lists that he was born in Fjotland.
