Erland Paulsen was a widower when he became the father of twin boys, Lars & Paul, on the 17th of April 1876. The boy's baptismal record states that they are illegitimate. Lars died 03 May 1879. I have no further info on Paul or his mother.

jordfeste - furneral service just after buriel or some times later (see also "jordpåkastelse")
The word "jordfeste" or "jordpåkasting" refers to the priest's blessing (by tossing soil onto the coffin). Usually this would occur at the same time as the burial, i.e., the priest would be present at the burial and toss soil onto the coffin. If, however, the priest was away, it frequently occurred that the priest would conduct the "jordpåkasting" some time after the burial. It seems quite odd, however, that [if] the person died 16 Dec 1879 and the "jordfeste" did not occur until 21 Aug 1881. I can't think of any good explanation for that delay.
(John Follesdal, in epost to Norway-L, Date: Sun, 11 Oct 1998 16:46:48 -0500)
jordpåkasting (see "jordpåkastelse")
husmann: cottager, tenant farmer, crofter, smallholder, person who rented a house with or without a small plot of land on larger farm. Rent was paid by doing part time work for the farmer. see also Norwegian farms - some background information
Husmann: "I don't think there is a good English word for 'husmann'. It is variously defined as cottager, cottier, cottar, crofter and cotter. Most of us use the word cotter. The term smallholder carries the implication of ownership, which is far from the husmann's case. Many cotter's places became
smallholdings when the cotter was able to buy it. An tenant farmer is far too grand for the husmann's position. The husmann was allowed to erect his house on encumbered land, usually in return for farm labour. Then there is the problem of 'med jord' and 'uten jord'. Such land as he could use was
essentially for his own domestic need and not farming per se.

All of the Erlandson brother's did not come to the United States together. All the brother's emigration or immigration records have been found. Jørgen Erlandsen left Oslo Harbor with his wife Guri Erlandsen the 3rd of June 1881, Paul left Kristiania Harbor 26 Mar 1886. On 25 Feb. 1886 an illegitimate child named Hans was baptised at the Dovre Parish Church. Paul was named as the father. The church record states that Paul had traveled to America. Albert Erlandsen left Oslo harbor in 1888, no month listed, and Mathias left Oslo harbor on the 3rd of June 1892. Erland Erlandsen came as Erland Aspeholden [mispelled Aspeholen] with his wife & baby daughter in 1894.
[In 1902] "a ticket from Norway to New York could be purchased for just over 100 Norwegian Kroner, while an average annual income for a male servant in the cities was about 300 Kroner, and in the rural districts about 220 Kroner. To put aside money for the ticket could be hard for an ordinary laborer, but almost impossible for an unemployed person, and they were often dependent on sponsors or others to help them with loans to pay for the passage." "The food was as on most emigrant ships consisting of 3 meals a day. Breakfast of coffee and bread, butter and sugar, dinner: salted or preserved meat, soup, vegetables and bread."
The Norwegian-American Historical Association web page:
Emigration from Dovre, 1865 -1914 *
by Arnfinn Engen translated by C. A. Clausen (Volume 29: Page 210)
[It seems that the area of Dovre was mostly farming and they simply ran out of land to farm. In the years 1801-1815 frost led to hard times for the farmers. During this time there was a low birthrate, high death rate and heavy migration away from the area. Crops were normal with some good years after 1814 but in 1834 a period of poor crops and dry weather came. Water froze in the irrigation pipes in 1837. It became "the parish in Gudbrandsdalen deepest sunk in poverty." After 1845 crops were better until late 1860s. From this webpage we see that the emigrants from Dovre 1891-1895 were 123.
The number of Dovre male emigrants 1891-1895 were 47.
After the American Civil War most of the emigrants went by steamship. The White Star Line carried about 50 percent of the emigrants from Dovre to America. There were also the Allan & Thingvalla lines. Around 1890 it cost about 170 Kroner for a ticket to Minnesota. Around this time more cotters and laborers emigrated than previously. A total of fifteen families held auctions before emigrating from 1870 to 1900. Some also had land to sell. The above webpage has letters from emigrants to their loved ones in Dovre telling about their journey to America. Some describe poor rations, storms and sea sickness. After arriving in America they described hard working conditions and hot summers. LMW]
"By 1880 the price on a steamship had increased to 110 kroner; some ten years later it was reduced to a little less than 100 kroner, only to rise again after the turn of the century.
A trip to southern Minnesota cost 210 kroner in 1868-1869; this price remained constant until around 1890 when it was reduced to about 170 kroner."
[It was a three day trip by ship from Christiania Norway to Hull England. There they went
by train to Liverpool where they boarded a steamer ship to New York.]
Erlandson history below was written by Evan Erlandson, grandson of Erland "Earl" Erlandson, 15 Oct. 2000. He wrote it in a letter to his son Jim, his brother Jack, and cousins Bo (Maurice) and Bill (Milton). Later Evan learned that the Erlandson brothers did not travel to the U.S. together, in fact they came here years apart:
"In 1894, five Erlandson brothers, Jurgen, Paul, Erland, Albert and Mathias, left the Gudbrandsdalen Valley in Norway and came to the United States. Also included were Erland's wife Pernille, and daughter Bertha, who was about one year old. Pernille's father, Christopher Pedersen, also came about that time. It's not known whether all came on the same ship, but it's most likely that they did. There is a story that the father of the 5 brothers, Erland Paulsen, came over from Norway too, but returned to the old country fairly soon afterward. This isn't substantiated at this time.
The whole gang most probably went through Ellis Island, where the authorities changed the end of their name from sen to son. This was a big mistake because it made Swedes out of all of them.
Some of the brothers beside Erland might have had wives or children with them but no such indication has been found so far. Within a very short time, the whole clan ended up in Mankato, Minnesota, where many other Norwegians, some of them relatives, had already settled.
Four of the brothers remained in Mankato, or the same general area, for the rest of their lives. Albert owned and operated a store. Mathias was a woodcarver, a craft he had learned by training in Norway. The two older brothers, Jurgen and Paul, probably lived out their lives as farmers. That's a guess. But Erland, after working about 4 years in a Mankato furniture factory, decided to go west with his family, in 1899. The family included Pernille and their 3 children, Bertha, Edgar and Ruth, and also Pernille's dad, Christopher Pedersen. Probably by this time Erland and Pernille were called Earl and Nellie - not sure Chris Pedersen was on the same train with the family, but he came to Spokane [Washington] at about the same time, and lived with them most or all the rest of his life. He died in 1919.
The story in the family is that when they all got on the train in Mankato in 1899, they were headed for Seattle, but some guy on the train convinced Earl that there were better opportunities in Spokane, so they got off here. (I wonder if they tried to get a refund because of the shorter trip Heh heh - - -)
Most of you to whom I'm sending these notes know the rest of the story as well as I do.
I was surprised by one thing, though: Grandma and Grandpa [Earl & Nellie] lived at several different places in Spokane, and didn't move to 1819 W. Maxwell 'til sometime around 1920. One of their earlier addresses was 1716 W. Augusta.
I should add that by no means are all of these records complete. Note missing names, dates, photographs, etc. If there's any solid information you can add to this stuff, please let me know.
The credit for getting this much of our Norwegian heritage together belongs to Leslie Wood, Betty's youngest sister, whose main hobby is genealogy. When she gets on the trail of something, she just doesn't let go. Evan."
[Later it was found that citizenship papers were granted Erlan Erlanson [sic] and his brother Mathias Erlanson [sic] in Blue Earth Co., MN. on Feb. 13, 1900 so the train trip to Spokane probably was soon after that. LMW]

The date of Erland's birth is not 16 Oct 1826 as on his Dovre Parish Church baptism record. I found that his brother, Anders Pauls., "Moved out" to Maalselven in 7 Aug. 1865. ]
