Here is the family of Ole Olsen Pramhus. and Thea Amundsdatter Pramhus. in the 1891 Census for Eidskog. Large family but the oldest child was born in 1877 so if Thea Olsen from the 1940 Census is a child of these parents and thus a sister of Inga Sofie she may have already left the nest.

1891

Also since Thea Amundsdatter the mother in this family was born around 1859 and Thea Olsdatter of Chicago was born around 1872 there may be a first wife involved in this family. Making Inga Sofie and Thea half-siblings.

A little more digging turns up the marriage of Ole Olsen and Thea Amundsdatter but not until Sept 15, 1877. So very unlikely that Thea Amundsdatter is the mother of Thea Olsen of Chicago.

#25

In fact the marriage record states that Ole Olsen was born in 1853. If so that would make him about 19 when the Thea Olsen of Chicago was supposedly born. Old enough I suppose. Also it lists him as unkarl ie bachelor, That usually means he has not been married and so if he is the father of the Thea of Chicago she would likely be born out of wed lock.

Not getting any good candidates for who was Thea Olson of Chicago.

And Torleif Olsen is a brother of Inga Sofie Olsdatter. He is found in the 1900 Census with the parents Ole Olsen and Thea Amundsdatter.

1900

Thus it is likely that Thea is also related in some way to this same family.

Oops, I had to correct the link

Based on your death record from Ancestry, this is likely the emigration record for Torlief

Here are two link to two pages from the older data base that shows the large group traveling together in 1907. Main person is Otto Henrik Olberg and his wife Anna Otillie Olberg born Ols.

Link Page One

Link Page Two

Anna Otille Olberg born Ols* is the daughter of Ole Olsen Braate and Thea Amundsdatter, found in the 1891 Census posted earlier for the daughter Inga Sofie.

Thank you so much.

Pretty sure I found Johannes half sister

Martea Olsdr
Birth: 9 March 1868
Brandval, Hedmark, Norway

Death: 27 April 1908
Harvey, Wells, North Dakota, United States

And we found
Anton

But was curious if there was census after 1875 that might give a clue what happened to his other siblings.

Olivia Olsdr
5 January 1865
Grue Præstg, Hedmark, Norway

Maria Olsdr
14 May 1876
Brandval, Hedmark, Norway

Caroline Olsdr

Is it this one?

https://www.digitalarkivet.no/en/census/person/pf01052734003351

It lists Karen Johannes and Karoline

I couldn't Maria anywhere.
I found this but seems unlikely it is her despite the month year birth date match.

I found this it doesn't list birth dates but seems pretty likely match since father matches and marriage date is after 1875 (which she is in but before 1891 census which she is not.

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NWWX-TM9

However I couldn't find her after that point. I guess I quit while I am ahead.

Thanks again greatly appreciate your help

Yes that looks like it is correct. Means that Ole is dead by then. The birth years are correct or very close and the farm Bukkebakken is correct. Here is the baptism record for Karoline.
