The Vetle that Odd found, died in Drangedal on 4 June 1913 on Holte. He was born 7 March
1841 in Flatdal He was married three times, first to Aase Olsdatter (30 May 1862) as it
shows in the census. She died 24 April 1872 on Vraalstad.
They had two children:
Knud b 17 Jan 1863, chr 15 Mar 1863 died 7 Jul 1863
Ingeborg Andrea b 22 April 1864 chr 5 Jun 1864 She moved to Skåtøy (this is an island in the
community of Kragerø) in 1880.
Vetle then married Maria Pedersdatter Eikebu b 10 Jul 1845 on 8 Sep 1872.
Anne Maria b 13 Sep 1872 chr 29 Sep 1872
Margith Karine b 12 Jul 1874 chr 26 Jul 1874
Gunhild Oline b 21 Apr 1876 chr 5 Jun 1876
Vetle married last on 11 Mar 1883, Dordi Hognesdatter b 1865 in Seljord, daughter of Hogne
Olsen Langvenda. They had no children.
If this is the correct family, I have additional ancestors on Aase and Maria, but nothing
further on Vetle or Dordi.
