Re(1): Parish handwriting

Stian Knutsen was born in on a smallholding, Hagefos under Traaer in Tørdal or Tørisdal in Drangedal Telemark. His Father Knud Pedersen was a cotter and the family moved around. Stians parents married in Drangedal in 1824 and had a son the same year, Peder and in 1826 another son Ole, both born on the Sponmyr smallholding. A sister Anne was born in 1833, but she died and a new sister also called Anne was born in 1835. In 1839 a sister Maria was born. In 1855 Knud Pedersen, his wife Aase or Aaste Andersdtr and 17 year old Maria lived on a smallholding Romsjordet. The sory goes that the houses of Romsjordet burned down and a young girl was killed in the fire. I can't find anything in the church regestry to support the story. There has been people from the US comming back telling they are related to Knud Pedersen.
