Snedkerlærling = carpentry apprenticeship

Fagerheim ved Grøren = Fagerheim at Grøren
Doesn't really make much sence.... Grøren must be a wrongspelling, but relate probably to a location.. Fagerheim could be a farmname.

Is it Johannes Erichsen Aakre?
He is a "Snedkerlærling", and he lives at the farm Fagerheim near Osøren, in Os, Hordaland.
Osøren (today spelled Osøyro or Osøyri) is the municipality centre in Os, Hordaland.
Directly translated; "Fagerheim" means "beautiful home".
