Maren Johane Jacobsen
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 20, 1812
Eidanger
Telemark fylke, Norway
Death: Dec. 10, 1911, USA

In an essay by Olga Peterson Snow about Maren's daughter Lena: "I am not sure where she was born but I remember her telling of going fishing with her father (Maren's husband) on the Fjord. I also remember her talking about Trondhjem. She (Lena) came to America and Wisconsin when she was 21 years old. Other members of her family also came. Her mother (Maren Johane) lived to be about 100 years and she died in 1911. A brother, Andrew, lived near Gilman Lutheran Church. I think they are both (mother and brother) buried there."

Gilman Census data seem to indicate that Maren had 8 children. The ones indicated are named Helena, Andrew, Martha and Jememia (Jerry) all born in Norway. She was a widow on or before 1880.
