Ole Evensen HUSEBY (1734-1804)

Hveberg (304) informs us that Ole Evensen HUSEBY was born in 1735. However, the Grue parish records indicate that he was baptized on the 3rd Sunday in Advent in 1734 (12 Dec). So obviously Ole was born sometime before that.

Ole married Eli Amundsdtr Mo (Hveberg, 304). Eli, the daughter of Amund Knutsen Mo and Marthe Jonsdtr Skytre, was baptized on the second Sunday of Easter in 1736 (8 Apr).

Ole and Eli's marriage took place in 1765 (Hveberg, 305). The Grue parish records give the date as 22 Oct.

They had at least two children: Even (b. 1769) and Marthe (b. 1770).

Apparently Ole was an "enterprising and clever man." (Hveberg, 305) If my translation is correct, he sold Eli's inheritance to her brother, Jon Amundsen Mo and then set out to be the sole owner. In 1795 he bought the farm of Mogens Larsen for 530 daler. Larsen, however, kept for himself the woods.

Ole and Eli both died in 1804 with Ole being buried on 25 Apr and Eli on 12 Jul.
