Regarding his birth, he was born in 1843, and not as his gravestone says, 1845. It seems like this error came already as he arrived the US. It is either a misunderstanding of paper he brought. It was not uncommon at that time in Norway, that the age where different from census to census, specially not in the villages where people where not highly educated.
