Their son, Lewis, stayed on the family farm until he was old enough to purchase 240 acres of his own in Adams Township.

Information from Contributor #48193334:
The only reference to a 24 May 1823 birthday for Kristi's (Christie) is located on her confirmation record at age 16. We know she is the daughter of John and Unni because she is mentioned in the farm book or bygdebok for the Hattlestad farm in Balestrand on page 254.There is a birth record for a Christi Johnson Hattlestad on 5 July 1821 with the same parents.

The birthday date of 24 May 1823 comes from her confirmation record. The very last column is for vaccinations - that is where this date comes from. Christi (Kristie) was 2 years old when she was vaccinated for small pox in 1823. This was noted on her confirmation record at age 16 in 1847. There is no birth record for her in 1823. There is a birth record for her on July 5, 1821.
