Even Olsen HUSEBY (1769-1827)

Even was born in 1769 (Hveberg, 305). I searched in the Grue parish records but was unable to find an entry for his baptism. Even was betrothed to Anne Johansdtr Brynn (b. 1774) on 12 Aug 1796 and they were married on 26 Oct.

Even and Anne had at least five children: Ole (b. 1796), Johan (b. 1798), Karen (b. 1802), Eli (b. 1806), and Anne (b. 1809). Hveberg (305) mentions six.

In 1816 Even was apparently subjected to a "silver tax." The record from Norway's Digitalarkivet is below.

The Grue parish records indicate that Anne died on 28 Jul and was buried on 4 Aug. There is some question as to whether the year was 1818 or 1819.

Their second son, Johan, took over the farm in 1824 (Hveberg, 305). Even passed away on 27 Mar 1827 and was buried on 6 Apr according to the Grue parish records.
