Ragnhild Gudbrandsdatter Finneplassen (gg-grandmother on my mother’s side) – Ragnhild was born December 28, 1825 on the Fjosvikeie farm in the Aadalen region of the Kommune of Ringerike in the Province of Buskerud in Norway. On January 29, 1846 she married Lars Gudbrandson Hauselhagen. They had 11 children. One of their children died within a year and another, Erick, died within a couple of years. Erick was born in 1872 when Ragnhild was 50 years old making her as far as I know my oldest female ancestor to give birth. In 1877 she and her family immigrated to the United States and went to Barron County, Wisconsin where there was already family living. She died October 23, 1906 of Cholera Morbus an outdated term for Gastroenteritis. Her daughter Bertha was my great-grandmother. The picture shows a Norwegian church record where both Ragnhild and her daughter Bertha were witnesses to a baptism in 1875.

Hi! Are you still doing this blog? When I have searched my family tree, your family comes up too. I would love to compare some family history and the book written about Ragnhild sounds wonderful! As far as I can tell, Ragnhild was my GGG-grandather's sister. I see you mention that some family was living in Barron County, Wisconsin, which is where I live.
 
No I am not doing my blog anymore. I wish I was but I just ran out of info to write about.

I would love to compare family history. The book , The Husmand, was written by Esther Hagen McPherson, belonged to my mother. I am not sure how she got it.
