Ranveig Torgjersdatter Morkve Ostby
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1847
Seljord kommune
Telemark fylke, Norway
Death: Jul. 18, 1911
Jackson County
Minnesota, USA

Ranveig Torgjersdatter Morkve was born in Vaaler, Norway, in 1847. She came to the US and married her first husband, Ole Olson Gavle, with whom she had several children; one of them, Emma, married Paul Irgens Dybdahl Ostby, son of the Reverend Paul Gjermundsen Ostby.

Ole Gavle passed away in 1907, and Paul Ostby's first wife Goro died a year later. Ranveig married the Reverend in 1909. Effectively, she went from being Paul I. D. Ostby's mother-in-law to his stepmother with that simple contract!

Despite being Paul's junior by some 11 years, Ranveig died only 3 years later of appendicitis, in 1911. Paul did not remarry, and died in 1918. Though he and Ranveig are buried in the same cemetery, they do not lie side-by-side - rather, Ranveig is buried by her first husband, Ole, and Paul's buried next to his first wife, Goro (Thornby) Ostby.
