RE: Quislings
Yes, thank you for the information. I went to Quisling clinic when I was very young and remember it from before they turned the building into apartments. I toured it as the apartment complex and it was an odd feeling.

Can you please provide documentation on the edit you submitted linking the Quislings? It's a bit of an age difference so I want to know your source.

Harry Babinger II
Alice Ober
It is quite possible that she is not interred where her memorial says. She died in April 1967 in Portland, Oregon, the same city as and six months subsequent to her son Lloyd, who is my wife's great-grandfather.

RE: Barbara Ellen Leaf McCartney
The name Thomas Davis is very common. I know for a fact that my great grandfather did not marry again. And, as I said before Barbara Ellen would have had to divorce Thomas before marrying her third husband. Please delete her as a spouse of my great grandfather as it is confusing to other family members.

Barbara Ellen Leaf McCartney
Your have listed Thomas E. Davis #10438296 in Pleasant View Cemetery of Hartley, IA as the second spouse of Barbara Ellen Leaf McCartney #10760513. I don't believe that my great-great grandfather every remarried after his wife Sarah died. Soon after she died he move to a veteran's home in Colorado as he had lived in Colorado prior to serving in the civil war. He married Sarah in 1866. He moved back to Colorado where one of his sons (Frank F Davis) was living. He went back to Hartley to visit two of his sons who still lived in Hartley. While he was visiting he went to his wife's grave on Decoration Day (now Memorial Day) to put flowers on her grave. Per his obit in the local paper he caught a chill and became ill. He died five days later at his son's home and was buried next to his wife. That was on June 4, 1907. If Barbara was married to Thomas she would have had to divorce him prior to marrying her third husband on Nov 15, 1888.

RE: Kristen Listad
Hi again, Sue. I recently added the Kvikne Churchyard (cemetery) in Nord-Fron to findagrave. You may have no connection with this cemetery, but my description of it is long and detailed enough to mention your ancestor Kristen Listad. I thought you might like to know that the information I gave you appears on findagrave there. Espa

RE: Kristen Listad
Hi, Sue, yes, it appears that he is buried in Fron, as I find his death record in the transcribed Fron records.
The church book didn't have column headings yet, but I add the categories:
Book 1, page 372, year 1802, Fron [it doesn't tell which of the four Fron churches], [no death date] funeral or burial 10 July 1802, Christen Erlandsen, Listad, Klokker, male, age 76.

At this time, they often didn't give the death date, but it's shortly before his funeral date. (For people with both dates, the dates are sometimes up to 15 dates apart.) The transcribers took Listad to be his residence rather than his surname (few Norwegians had surnames until close to 1900). I usually translate "klokker" as sexton, the minister's assistant, as you described.

In Einar Hovdhaugen's bydge book "Gardar og Slekter i Fron" (1974), vol 2, pp. 174-76, I translated this about the Haugen farm in the Ruste area of Sødorp: "The farm has partly been called Klokkar-Haugen. The well-known ‘klokkar' and parish artist Kristen Erlandsen Listad had the farm from 1756 to 1772, hence the name." … "Anders Torgersen … from Kvålen in Skåbu [my 4-great-grandfather] bought Haugen, one hide, from Kristen Erlandsen Listad in 1772 for 1,100 riksdaler."

From my translation of a 1920 article about the Kvikne church in Fron: "Inside the altar area, on the church's north wall, is a carved image of the Savior crucifix, … [4' 1½"] high. This was carved by the old sexton in Fron, Christen Listad. It is said that he carried it on his shoulder the whole way from Listad in South Fron to the Kvikne Church, … [about fourteen English miles]."

Let me know if any more questions, Espa
