Berit Nubsdatter Blakstvedt (gg-grandmother on my mother's side) - Berit Nubsdatter Blaktvedt was born on February 1, 1816 to Nub Gulbrandsen Blakstvedt and Ingeborg Petersdatters Tosseviken. She married Fredrik Ellingson on Oct. 20, 1845 in the Viker Church, Adalen region of the Kommune of Ringerike, Buskerud, Norway. They had five children one who died young. She came over to the United States in 1877 which was about a year after her husband and youngest daughter did. When she arrived she went to Freeman Township, Freeborn County, Minnesota where her husband had settled. Her death date is unknown but I believe it is somewhere between 1880 and 1900. Her first child, Nub, is my great-grandfather. The picture contains information about her marriage from a Norwegian Church record book. By the way I have seen her first name spelled Beret, Berte, Birgit, Birgith, Bereth, and Betsy.
