His parents lived at Rustandeie, at Engerodden after their marriage in 1741, and in 1745 they moved to Skagnesodden. All his grandparents were born in Ådalen near Ytre, which is in Ådal close to the border of Norderhov, Ådalen, Norway. Wegger was a great-grandchild of Mikkel Blakstvedt, born about 1570, who bought Blakstvedt in 1616. Wegger lived at the Rustand farm, and he bought the upper Gravli farm in 1772. In connection with his work he lived sometimes both in Haugsbygd and in Begnadalen, but before and after that he owned Gravli. Wegger Olsen Gravli died in December 1807 or January 1808 in Aadalen, Norway. He was buried January 1808 in the Viker Church cemetery, Aadalen, Buskerud, Norway. Else Larsdatter Skarud Gravli died on November 23, 1821 in Aadalen, Buskerud, Norway.
