The other group is on page 307 and consists of several with the last name given as Oleson. They include Olina age 60, Grethe 25 and Halvor 18.

Here is the record for Halvor. The whole page is listed as English so I would not put much stock in that identifacation.

A possible family in 1865, but there are several ripples about names, Oline is given as Engebretsdatter rather than Olsdatter, Halvor is not present or if he is, he is called Haakon. The family is on Helstad which is similar to the farm they were on in 1875 Hellestad:

I think that you have found the family in 1865 Jackie in spite of the wrong last name given to Oline. Looks like they married on July 13, 1845.

#13

The Olsen family and the Gilbertsen (Gulbrandsen) family are linked together both by likely migrating from the same area in Norway, i.e. Nes, Askerhus and marriage as Grethe Olsdatter born June 18, 1857 is likely the same person as Mrs. Alet Gilbetsen even if her birth date is listed as June 15, 1857 in the FAG record.

Grethe #86

I would like to assign this baptism record to Alet however the mother is listed as a Gulbrandsdatter and not Pedersdatter but the fit is quite good except for that fact.

#17

Likely Anton Gulbrandsen with family in the 1865 Census

1865

I assume Greth was a sister of Halvor. Is that correct? Gary

Very likely since the parents have the same names and are associated with the Holter farm in both baptism records.

I see that Halvor's occupation is listed as "ARB". What is that?

I think I answered your question just above your post.

ARB is short for arbeider and arbeider means worker

I also gave you a link to a Norwegian-American dictionary. Here it is again.

Link

He arrived in America on the Arizona. The Angelo is a feeder ship that would have travelled between Norway and an English and Irish port where he would have boarded an ocean going vessel in this case the Arizona to travel from England or Ireland to America.
