lived farm #4 Østerhus, Strand, Norway

A very long time ago the main farm in that part of Strand was
Øvre (Upper) Bjørheim, and Østerhus was a part of this farm, called
the farm to the East of (Øvre Bjørheim).
Østerhus was originally one farm and probably early 1700's divided
into two farms what is now farm 1 and 4.
Then farm no. 3 was separated from farm no. 1 in 1853 and the
same year was farm no. 5 separated from farm no. 3.
In 1855 farm no. 2 was separated from farm no. 1.
Farm no. 6 was separated from farm no. 4, and so on.

Peder grew up at Østerhus.  His parents rented Vaula farm from 1798-1807



info from Stein

I have a book called "Norges bebyggelse", volume "Mid-Rogaland, Rural
section" published in 1957, where all rural residential houses in Mid
Rogaland are listed together with vital data on the owners and their
families, as well as a small photo of each house. The photo is exactly the
same as in Edgar's photo album. This is what is said about the farm:

info from Stein

"Nerhus, farm no. 26, subfarm 5. Located by busstop. Postal address
Bjørheimsbygd. Size approx. 17.5 acres usable field, hereof 5 acres bearing
crops. Approx. 62 acres outlying fields and wood. Main house built of timber
in 1 1/2 floor, house extended around 1880 and around 1916, 600 square feet,
5 rooms, kitchen, basement. Cowshed built of timber before 1870, barn built
same year. Chicken house built 1920, baking and brewing house 1916. To
present owner 1917. Live stock 4 cows, 1 - 2 calfs, horse, 200 chicken, pig,
20 - 25 sheep.   -  Owner: Endre Nerhus, born Nov 12, 1884 in Strand,
parents Sevrine and Asbjørn N., married 1919 to Ingeborg Måland, born Dec
29, 1892 in Måland, parents Rakel and Johne M. Children: Sevrine, born Mar
11, 1921, Johne, born Jan 1, 1923.  -  The owner has passed away."

I think the house on the left, the "grey" one, is a "folga", i.e. a house


for the retired farmer (present farmer's parents, or previous owner if the
farm was bought instead of inherited). The white one is the main house. The
"folga" was usually an older house, and the style of this one (with the shed
built in on the left hand side) suggests that it's from before 1870. The
newest house in my street in Tau that had that feature was from 1881. These
sheds were usually used to store fire wood, by the way. At least when I was
a kid (in the 70's).

info from Arne Sivertsen

People were always buried on the local church's cemetery.
If they belonged to the Årdal church, they also were buried there.
Never on a farm.
The Jørmeland people were buried on the cemetery at Hjelmeland church.
Quite a long way to take the body, but sure they did.
Then one week after the funeral, a big party was held, a socalled "gravøl".
All the neighbors were invited, and it was a duty to participate.
A gravøl was not necessarily a sad party, on the contrary the meaning was
to be lively and have fun, so that the soul of the deceased would better get
peace and rest -.

Gabriel born 1851 was living together with his mother in 1865.
In 1875 he worked with spinning and sale of yarn.
( He is the only one listed with spinning as a profession, but it is probably the poll clerk who has
been inaccurate. it was more likely Gunhild who did the spinning and Gabriel sold the yarn?)

Tollak b. 1855 emigrated to America in the spring 1865 only 10 years old.


He probably joined the group leaving Rodabakken the same spring.
Pedar and Gunhild took over the farm after his father in 1830. Gunhild was
later provided for by the new owner. In 1875 she had 15 sheep and 1 pig, and
she seeded 1/5 barrel barley and 1/2 barrel potatoes.
We havn't found her or Gabriel as dead in Strand, and they have probably
emigrated to America as so many others in the family did.

Stein

Gunhild Asbjørnsdatter, born 1808 on the Nerhus farm, Strand parish,
Rogaland county, Norway.
(Nerhus is also called Nedre Bjørheim).
Gunhild probably went to the US after the Civil War to live with one of her
children there.

info from Bygdebok:
owned farm #5 Østerhus.  They were farmers on Østerhus since their marriage.  In 1865 they had 4 cows and 10 sheep.  They seeded 1 barrel of oats and 2 barrels of potatoes.  In 1867 the farm consisted of about 2.5 acres, both field and cutivated meadow.  They had 4 acres of inferior meadow, but still cutlivable.  At the turn of year 1875-76 they might have been starting to abolish the farm.  At that time they had only 2 cows and 1 pig, while they had been seeding for the last time 1/5 barrel of barley, 1 barel of oats and 3 barrels of potatoes.  Halvard met with the minister in early May of 1876 and announced that he considered to emigrate to Illinois in the United States.

In america Halvard and Siri dropped the farm name and went by the last name of Halvardsen.



marriage in Norway
Russ,
What I know about marriages in the past is that people always
married in a church, the one they belonged to.
You had to pay a consumption fee to get married, but an exception
for farmers and other common people. For them the wedding was free
of charge.
So, from 1863 people were allowed to marry without the cooperation
of the church, and could go to the judge to have a civil marriage.
As far as I know, you had to pay a fee then.
About baptism.
New born babies, looking week and sickly, were christened at home just
after the birth, often by the father.
Then the baptism was confirmed in the church some weeks later.
There are often notations in the church records like: "The child died
before the baptism was confirmed in the church."
May be Mari Anne has something to add to this?

took over after them. He was marr. to Kristi Tollefsdatter and they
emigrated in 1876 with four childen to Illinois and came later

It was Thore Larsen Svadberg from Årdal who bought the farm. He
moved to Hundvåg near Stavanger in 1897 and sold the farm to
Ole Olsen Jørmeland b. 1861, who returned from USA that year. He
was marr. to Anne Tjerandsdatter b. 1870 on Meland.

While looking for info on one Rasmus Peterson from the Østerhus farm in
Strand parish, Rogaland county in Norway, I found a posting from you
concerning a Peterson family from Strand, who came to live near Badger,
Webster co., IA. Since Rasmus is said to have lived there (according to
"Nordmændene i Amerika" by Martin Ulvestad, published in Minneaoplis, MN
1907), I thought I'd hear if we're looking for the same person.

I'm currently working with a project on men from Strand parish who founght


in the US Civil War. Rasmus Peterson is listed in Ulvestad's book as being a
Civil War vet, but so far I've been unable to locate what unit he served
with. A complicating factor seems to be that a number of the immigrants from
Strand living in Iowa at the time went back to the older settlements around
Fox River, IL and mustered in with Illinois units. For instance, one of
Rasmus' brothers, Asbjørn (aka Aspien), served with the 36th Illinois
Infantry. Several other members of the Peterson family came to the area
around Badger in the decades following the Civil War. Another brother, Knut,
came there in 1882, after having lived in Illinois for 6 years after
emigrating from Norway.

Rasmus Peterson, born in 1843 on the Østerhus farm, Strand parish, Rogaland


county, Norway.
Emigrated to the US in 1861.
Norwegian name: Rasmus Pedersen Østerhus.

Finally, I might add that I'm a descendant of old Peder Knutsen's aunt Siri


(born 1780).

Best regards,


Stein

Info from Stein


I think there is a reference to Seward (or Syvert as he was called in Norway) in "De som dro ut", the official book of the 150th anniversary of Norwegian emigration. I'll look it up in the library this weekend. Also, he's mentioned in an article by B L Wick (a lawyer and historian from Iowa) in an article called "nogle af de første Strandbuer i Amerika" ("Some of the first people from Strand in America"), published in "Samband" No. 87, July 1915. One paragraph in the article says (page 550):

"Jonas Norland and family and Lars Strand came to La Salle County, Illinois, during the spring of 1853 and soon went West to Benton county, Iowa, and became pioneers there. Lars Strand and Per, son of Jonas Norland, went in the war and both got sick and died. Among the people from Strand, also Ole Weland, Andrew Tow, Kristoffer Moen, Syvert Moen, Rasmus Vastvedt and many more were in the war."

In addition, Seward/ Syvert is also listed in "The Norwegians in America and their records" by Martin Ulvestad, published in 1907:

"Syvert Knudsen Moen, Badger, Iowa; Civil War veteran"

Military: men who served in the civil war from Kendall County, Ill

Gabriel born 1851 was living together with his mother in 1865.


In 1875 he worked with spinning and sale of yarn. He is the only one listed
with spinning as a profession, but it is probably the poll clerk who has
been inaccurate.
It was more likely Gunhild who did the spinning and Gabriel sold the yarn?

believe he was killed in the Civil War?????
