Notes for John Andreas Olsen
Story about her father Jon.
John got a tragic death when he rowed to Grøtøy to shop in the spring of 1914. Together with him, he had his 16-year-old son Alfstrøm. There was uneasy weather and Jon fell out of the boat in the waves. The son got hold of him and held him for a long time as he called for help. No one heard, and the son eventually had to drop his father. John drowned and Alfstrøm took it very hard that he could not save his father.
Notes for Anna Maria (Spouse 1)
Anna’s parents are Anders Christian Johannesen and Else Hansdatter.
