Ole (Olav) Pedersen was born 1857 (d. 1943) in Kvinnherad, Hordaland, Norway. It appears to have been a relatively small place.

Ole/Olav married Sella Olavsdatter from the FlatebÝ farm in 1879. Among their numerous children they had two sons they named Olav (Ole) and both of those emigrated to America.

His birth/baptismal record is (bottom of the pages - record #94)
