"Husmo," Nes på Romerike: Pål Olsen Skeksrud

From the section on the Husmo farm in the Nes på Romerike bygdebok we can begin to verify the ancestors of Anna Gurina (Huusmoe) JOHNSON.

The relevant paragraphs as translated by Google Translate (with some help) are as follows:

The shift after Mari was settled in 1785 at 198½ rd. in assets and 170½ rd. in debt. 3 horses, 10 cattle, 12 sheep, 4 goats and 1 pig. Mari had inherited 5 5/6 lsp. in Lower Røtnes. Farms here owned by Mrs. Holter at Hvam. Sakse was married a 2nd time in 1785 to Anne Pålsdtr from Horgen in Fenstad (1755-1788) and a 3rd time in 1789 to Kari Andersdtr from Funni (1765-1837). Children: Anne Maria, born and died 1790, Anders, born and died 1791, Pål, born and died 1793, Pål (see next), Anders, born 1796, Gulbrand (see below).

Councilor Nils Holter deeded in 1784 the farm here for 799 rd. to his mother Anna Holter at Hvam. Assessor Niels Nielson received the deed to 1/12 of the farm from Helle Dorph in 1791 and to 1/3 in 1812 for 500 rd. from Christen Holter and to 1/3 in 1813 from Jacob Tybring and finally the rest from Jon Collett Müller and H. F. Grønvold et al. in 1821 and 1822. Nielson leased the farm to the eldest son of Sakse Pålsen:


PÅL SAKSESEN, born 1794, married in 1827 Mari Hansdtr from Hennie, children born here: Hans Sigvart, born 1821, Caroline Mary, born 1824, Anne Gorine, born 1827, Oleana, born 1830. Pål moved the family to Bjørke, and his brother took over the farm:

Gulbrand SAKSESEN, born 1799, died before 1868, married in 1825 to Kari Gulbrandsdtr from Upper Skøyen (1803-68). Children: Grethe Karoline (see below), Søren (see next), Anne Gurine, born 1831, married in 1861 to tailor Andreas Løvlien from Kongsberg, Gulbrand, born 1834, to America, Berte Andre

Gulbrand Saksesen got the deed to the farm (2/3 of half S. Husmo) from the widow after councilor and magistrate Nielson in 1838 for 1000 spd. Gulbrand was a sound man and received in 1838 a license to put the Glomma by "Hennisund" for 70 spd. years and shore duty. Shortly after the scheme was that Gulbrand should have 500 rd. once and for all. In 1846 he sold half the farm to his son Søren for 800 rd. (Skylddeling 1847, 7). The rest Gulbrand sold in 1849 son-in-law Lars Engebretsen (see Husmo Flaen, 7). . . .
This confirms Anne Gurine's parents on Gustav's pedigree chart: Gulbrand Saksesen Husmo and Kari Gulbrandsdtr Øvre Skøyen. Gulbrand's parents were Sakse Pålsen Husmo and Kari Andersdtr Funni and Sakse's parents were Pål Olsen Skeksrud and Boel Saksedtr Øvre Skøyen. To go further back we will need to check the Skeksrud farm's history.
