The first Thor died young probably in 1816 see the second entry from the bottom left page


A second Thor for this same couple was then born on Sep 16, 1816.


That Thor or Thore married Anne Pedersdatter. in 1840

Thore Johnsen
in the Norway, Select Marriages, 1660-1926
Name: Thore Johnsen
Gender: Male
Age: 24
Birth Date: 1816
Marriage Date: 2 jun 1840
Marriage Place: Nord-Trondelag, Norway
Father: John Amundsen
Spouse: Anne Pedersdatter
FHL Film Number: 307064
Reference ID: bk 6 214-7

Anne or Anna was born Dec 6, 1806 in Nord-Trøndelag to Peter Rasmussen and Anna Olsdatter.

First Entry

Thore and Anna had at least one child

Jorgine Benedicte Thoresdatter
in the Norway, Select Baptisms, 1634-1927
Name: Jorgine Benedicte Thoresdatter
[Jorgine Benedicte Johnsen]
Gender: Female
Baptism Date: 12 mai 1845 (12 May 1845)
Baptism Place: Skei, Nord-Trondelag, Norway
Father: Thore Johnsen
Mother: Anne Pedersdatter
FHL Film Number: 307064


Here is the family of Thore Johnson and Anna Pedersdatter and family in the 1865 Norwegian Census. It shows six children including Jorgine.


Likely that Jorgine Benedicte Thoresdatter married Petter Andreasen in 1871 in Sparbu, Nord-Trøndelag.


Here is her husband Petter Andreasen and his family on Brueim øvre in the 1865 Norwegian Census.


Petter and Jorgine had several children including Anna born in 1873. Farm name is Sem at that time.


Including Andreas born in 1881 who emigrated to America under Anders Sem.


And Peter Ingolf born in 1885 who also emigrated to America.


In the 1900 Norwegian Census Jorgine is living on Sem nedre probably with her second husband.


Jorgine and her second husband had at least one child Lovise born in 1889.

When you are looking at the digitized birth/baptismal record for Jorgine Benedicte Thoresdatter which was indexed to the website as in "Skei, Nord-Trondelag, Norway" you can get more detail than indexed there.
Click on the icon marked with the lower case letter i -- and listed under the heading Area will be more complete detail of where that record was created. You can then compare that to information you have about other families.
