: Jacob Clausen Kaasen ( 1769 - 1839) & Anne Tollefsdatter Jøntvet, Værstadkaasa farm IP: 22.214.171.124 Posted on January 10, 2011 at 07:10:06 by Bjørn-Eddy Andersen
I am living in Tønsberg, 1 hour ride from Telemark where I during my studies of genealogy have concluded that my ancesters on my father-side are from Holla ( or Holden) in Telemark, from the farm Værstadkaasa ( or only Værstad).
These are my information:
- my grand- grand-grand father og mother: Jacob Clausen Kaasen ( 1769 - 1839) and Anne Tollefsdatter Jøntvet ( 1776 - 1854 ). They had a lot of children, and the oldest one, is my great-grand-father, called Claus. He stayed in Norway. Four of his brothers left for US: Peder, Johannes, Nils and Tollef. Their mother Anne Tollefsdatter Jøntvet went also to US. Two of these brothers were very active in establishing the first norwegian church in Muskego, Wis.
Are you able to give me some contact with some of the descendants living in US today ?
