Since my earlier response I've looked at the poster's other queries through the years. One one of them also concerning Nels Nelson they gave his birthplace as Christiania (or spelling similar to that).

The original source data MUST be checked. There is a vast difference between Christiania (Oslo) and Kristiansand (Christiansand)... two entirely different cities in two different areas.

I also looked through the parish records of Kristiansand and agree there was no Nels, Nils or Niels child listed as born that year that survived childhood.
