Ingegrigt was born July 21, 1820 at Hoye, which is believed to be a farm near Avaldsness on the island of Karmoy just across the sound from Haugesund, Norway. He came to the USA from Stavanger on the ship "Ebenezer" (Captained by H. C. Clausen) which landed in New Youk June 15, 1849. The passenger list shows "Brugt Ammundsen, 29, male". Despite the discrepancey in spelling it seems certain that the "Brugt Ammundsen" is Ingebrigt because in other independent information he left Norway in 1849 and in that year he would have been 29. There is no information concerning Ingegright's reasons for leaving Norway, nor for his reasons or means of arriving in Albion, Dane County, Wisconsin. It is not known when he arrived in Albion. He married Abel Catherine (von Krogh) Anderson on March 18, 1854. She was a widow with eight children; six of whom were still living with her on the homestead which she and her first husband established in 1841. The farm was just south of the little settlement of Hillside, Wisconsin at the junction of Hillside Road and Dane County Trunk A. It is of interest to note, in studying the lineage of Ingebrigt and Bjorn, (the first husband) that they had common ancestors in at least one line of descent.
