Even Olsen HUSEBY (1711-1750)

Ole and Marte's son, Even, was born in 1711 and took over the farm from his father shortly after the latter's death in 1729. (Hveberg, 304.)

According the Grue parish records, Even was betrothed to Anne Olsdtr By, daughter of Ole Olsen By and Lisbet Arnesdtr Holmen, on 21 Nov 1733 and married on 29 Dec. Hveberg gives the date as 1734, but the parish records are probably more reliable in this case.

Even and Anne named their first son, Ole, as tradition warranted. Even passed away late in 1750, his burial being recorded in the Grue parish records on 16 Dec. We currently have no record of Anne's burial.
