Frederik Jorgensen Omoen & Eli Olsdatter HaukedalenFrederik Jorgensen Oimoen & Eli Olsdatter Haukedalen were married about 1845 in Norway, and they had at least 4 children born between 1846 to 1858. Family story is that Eli's father disinherited her when she married Frederik. Frederik & Eli are listed on the 1865 census of the Oimoen farm, Ness, Aadalen, Norway with 4 of their children still at home. At that time Frederik was age 50 and Eli was age 45. Frederik & Eli both died sometime after 1865, but I don't know where or when. There are several ties between Eli's descendants and the descendants of her first cousin Peder Lunde. Frederik & Eli's daughter Gunhild married Asle Pedersen Lunde, who was Peder's son. Fredrik & Eli's son Gilbert (Gulbrand) also had a son named Calmer who married Atlanta Lunde, who was a daughter of Ole Lunde & Ingeborg Viker and one of Peder's granddaughters.

Gunhild FredricksdatterGunhild Fredricksdatter was born in 1849 in Norway. She is listed at age 15 with her parents on the 1865 census of the Oimoen farm in Ness, Aadalen, Norway.

Gunhild married Asle Pedersen Lunde on May 15, 1883 in Freeborn Co., MN. and they had 4 children. Asle was son of Peder Lunde & Else Gravli. Asle & Gunhild were second cousins - their grandmothers Kari & Barbro Hval were sisters. On March 25, 1891, Peder Lunde sold the part of his land with his original homestead to Asle for $1. On September 2, 1891, Peder & Elsie made a legal contract with their sons Asle & Ole that included sale of some of their land in Hayward to each son, and also stipulated that Asle & Ole care for Peder & Else in their old age. Peder Lunde died soon after on September 29, 1891, and his son Asle died the next year. Asle died in November 5, 1892 in Hayward, Freeborn Co., MN from injuries received when he was kicked by a horse. At the time of his death, his children were age 1 to 8. The photo of Gunhild and the children was probably taken about 1895. Children oldest to youngest were Elsie, Florence, Palma & Alfred. Gunhild died on October 22, 1896 in Hayward, Freeborn Co., MN. Gunhild died without a will, and on July 1, 1922 the Lunde land in Hayward (which Gunhild inherited when Asle died), was given by the courts in equal parts to all of the four children. On July 24, 1922, the three sisters sold it for "$1 and love and affection" to their younger brother Alfred, who by Norwegian custom would have been the legal heir as the oldest son.
