    Notes 
    • Shown in birth record as illegitimate.

      Does not seem to be listed in the 1865 census.

      According to Arne, citing Øyane in the bygdebøk, Bertha emigrated to America in 1861 and there married the Norwegian husmannssonen Peder Olson frå Bakken under Kroken i Luster in 1840. According to Øyane, Berta died in 1868 and Peder in 1908, likely in America.

      The Hafslo emigration record shows the unmarried Britha Andersdatter Marheim, age 31, leaving on April 18, 1861.

      In his further research, Arne found:

      “Bertha and Peder married in Stoughton, Dane, Wisconsin 30 August 1861. They had one daughter there, Oline, born 23 March and baptized 10 October 1862. Later on, it seems they moved to Winneshiek, Iowa, and had two children: Erik, born 15 July and baptized 19 October 1864, and Elise, born 25 February 1866. It seems to me, they were still living in Winneshiek, according to the 1870-census, even if the age is wrong for Peder, Oline, Erik and Elisa.

      “I have not found them in later censuses, or death records. It seems obvious, however, that Bertha did NOT die in 1868, and we do not know for sure if Peder died in 1908 as stated by Øyane.”
