EDIT: Actually, that was another one:

The latter also supplies the father, and 14 year old mother ...

None of the trees seem accurate as far as Norwegian records, but Agnette seems to have arrived in Wisconsin about 1858, married and remained in Wisconsin about 10 to 15 years. Then moved to Minnesota and then to Wisconsin.

I see that Jens used the farm name of Langkloppen, when he migrated.

Nr 68 - 72

I confess that info has not made the search any easier
