Cause of death is croup.

Likely Karen @ Fredlund nedre in Asker, census-1900. Karen is receiving support from the Poor Relief Fund.
Likely Karen @ Snippen in Asker, census-1910. Karen is receiving support from the Poor Relief Fund.

This seems to have been a family of few means. Also Olava was receiving support from the Poor Relief Fund.
And the parents Fredrik & Birthe were moving around, also an indication of few means. The four children are born at four different small holdings in Asker.
Olava's confirmation record also hint in this way. The priest commented that the girl was "neglected" by the parents, and she spent two years to prepare for the confirmation, while the common was one year.
She did well though, and the priest gave her very good grades in Christianity and diligence.



Karen in 1865 census:

Is the pastor saying that her parents neglected her religious education or her general education?

The exact comment in Olava's confirmation reads this:
"Formerly neglected, but after 2 years of preparations quite good, and showed very good behavior."

Neglected in this context must refer to a neglected childhood; the responsibility of the parents.
Maybe her general knowledge was poor, or her reading skills were bad. Could also possibly refer to cleanliness or general behavior.
