I went back to the Geni Tree to see if some information could be gotten from the work that would have been done there. Found this that I overlooked the first time.

Josefa Bernhardine ble født på Bragernes i Drammen i en søskenflokk på 7. Hun ble døpt i Bragernes kirke, og i kirkeboken står bl.a "Jomfru Anne Stoltenberg" oppført som en av fadderne. Anne (Holgersdatter) Stoltenberg er en noe yngre halvsøster av Sara Marie, Josefas mor.

Would seem to be referring to Anne Magdalene Moss January 30, 1778
Kragerø, Telemark, Norway. But if so then Sara Maria would have been born before 1778?

Name: Anna Magdalena Hendrichsdatter
Gender: Female
Birth Date: 30 jan 1778
Baptism Date: 6 feb 1778
Baptism Place: Kragero, Telemark, Norway
Father: Hendrich Moss
Mother: Anna Maria Josepha Koss
FHL Film Number: 126947

I think Jackie has been here before.

Then the tree lists Peter Henrich as her brother b 1796 Buskerud. Major Peter Falck Von Koss and Maria Josefa Von Koss.

Last entry right hand page


Here is Peter Falk von Koss and wife Anna Maria Josepha Moss and son Peter in 1801. One would think that if Anna Maria had a daughter in 1790 that she would be with her mother.


They married Jan 29, 1788 Kragero, Telemark, Norway


Children of Anna Maria Josepha Koss and Henrich Moss Married 16 mar 1775 , Baptism date given All from Kragero, Telemark except Peter.

Joseph Albert Feb 26, 1776

Friderica Henriksdatter Feb 6, 1778

Anna Magdalene Feb 6, 1778

Andreas June 28, 1779

Maria Elisabeth Oct 14, 1782

And with Peter Falch Married Jan 29, 1788

Peter Henrich July 9, 1796

Hello Lyndal,

I am still working on my family tree . I have a lot of info now (still a few gaps though!) Could I refer you to your post above with reference to Josefa Bernhardine from Geni Tree - can you provide me with the link? Is it available in English and who or what is the original source?
For your information, we are visiting Stavanger in August so will be visiting several sites and meeting some relations I hope.

Here is a link to the profile for Bernardine Josepha Hansen (Myhre) on

The comment section is not in English but Google does a fairly good job of translating. I made a few minor corrections.

"Josefa Bernhardine was born at Bragernes in Drammen in a sibling group of 7. She was baptized in the church of Bragernes, and in the church book, "The maiden Anne Stoltenberg" is listed as one of the godparents. Anne (Holgersdatter) Stoltenberg is a somewhat younger half-sister of Sara Marie, Joseph's mother.

Josefa grows up in Drammen as the daughter of "Hattemagermester" Ole Hansen Myhre, and the family was good at it. The father owns 2 houses for several years, but then things do not go well , the competitors are many, and the father Ole gets sick. In 1831, the same year that Josephas youngest brother was born, his father goes missing, and in January 1836 the father dies of tuberculosis.. He was buried at the Bragernes church. The family has some heavy years ahead of them, yet her mother Sara Marie is able to give her children schooling and good education.

20, 27 Oct. and 3.nov. In 1844, the marriage of Josefa and Peder Hansen in Bragernes Church was announced and the week after they married. In the course of 1845 they moved and settled in Stavanger, where in the first few years Peder fed himself as a wheel maker, then a police officer and a headteacher witness. They became the parents of 4 sons and two daughters. Josefa and Peder died shortly in the fall of 1891, and were buried at Lade cemetery in Stavanger."

The Profile Manager is Bjørg Mossige Hansen and there is a link so that you can contact him directly.

There is not a source listed for the above information but if you click on the mother there is one source listed.

However as shown earlier some of the information in this tree is not correct.

I also went back and read the discussion on "Myhre Family Kongsberg" at Brukernes eget forum at Arkivverket which is quite complete.
