| Re. the 1872 Odvar Odd list.
I have some info on family #30, if you are interested.
They are listed as:
30a Michl. Inge. Erland 70? m
30b Cathrine !! !! 42 f
30c Michael A !! 5 m
Here is a part of the history:
from Tysvær bygdebøk #1, page 293, farm Erland, entry # 12:
12. Mikkel Ingebrigtsen Klovning (23) 1795- married 1) 1815 to Ingeborg Nilsdt Bukneberg, Bokn 1794-1843.
married 2) 1845 married widow Mette Kristine Johnsdt Håland
married 3) 1867 to Catrine Jakobsdt Klovning 1823-.
l) Mikal 1868
Mikkel, Catrine and the son Mikal went to America in 1872.
We do not know what happened to the father Mikkel(Michl.) in the US, but his wife and youngest son settled in Kernan, LaSalle Co., IL using the last names of Mitchell.
