About cthomas1967

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all.

The Extended Family of Jens Rasmussen (1847-1923)

As I did with his wife Ovidia Olesdatter, this article will attempt to present a reasonably terse version of my research in the Norwegian archives for the family of Jens Rasmussen (a/k/a John Hanson) who was my great-great-grandfather.  I’ve already posted the story of his life as it was documented by his daughter Olga Hanson Schmidt.  This will give Jens’s entire five-generation tree back to his 2x great-grandparents (my 6x great-grandparents) and in some cases his 3x great-grandparents (my 7x great-grandparents).

[NOTE: I’d like to again thank Nina Karlsen whose help in finding Norwegian-language reference material was invaluable in preparing this history.]

This figure gives the overview [click to enlarge or download]:

Jens Rasmussen Tree

Jens Rasmussen Tree


Jens Rasmussen was born 26 Jan 1847 on Østrem Farm in Lindås, Hordaland, Norway.  His parents were Rasmus Hansen Hellestvedt (1812-1862) and Sigri Andersdatter Østrem (1816-1905).  Jens was baptized in Lindås on 31 Jan 1847 and confirmed in Lindås on 29 Sept 1861.  In the 1865 Census for Lindås he is listed working as an 18-year old farm laborer on the farm of Lasse A. Knudsen.  A 23-year-old Jens left from Bergen for Québec on 22 May 1870 on the “Galathea”, arriving on 10 Jul 1870.  It was only one of many trips across the Atlantic he would make over the next 14 years.  He returned to Norway from Northern Wisconsin in 1884 and was living and working on Ryum Farm in Vikna, Nord-Trøndelag, Norway with his three brothers Rasmus, Andreas, & Hans when he met 17-year-old Ovidia Olesdatter.

He married Ovidia Olesdatter in Vikna, Nærøy, Nord-Trøndelag, Norway on 12 Sept 1884 where both bride and groom were listed as being from Ryum Farm.  Jens’s occupation was given as sailor.  The newlywed couple departed Bergan, Norway for New York, USA on 8 Oct 1884.  They settled on a homestead on the side of Rib Mountain near the town of Fleith, Wisconsin around 1889, and they both farmed there until the end of their lives.

Children of Jens Rasmussen and Ovidia Olesdatter (all born in Wisconsin): Roger Hanson (1887-1888), Olga Johanna Hanson (1891-1990), John Albert Hanson (1894-1980), Mabel Esther Hanson (1897-1992), Roy Sigvard Hanson (1900-1972).

DNA Matches and the Thomas Line

I have written extensively about my Thomas family line in the past.  Specifically about the extensive (although not conclusive) evidence that my 4x great-grandfather James S. Thomas (1782-1868) was the son of Revolutionary War veteran Beriah Thomas (1742-1846) and his wife Elizabeth Hutchinson.  The link between James and Beriah has never been entirely confirmed, but I was about 95% certain that Beriah Thomas was the father of James.

Beyond that, I had some evidence (mostly circumstantial) that Beriah’s parents were John Thomas and Abigail Griffin, mostly because they were the only Thomas family listed in the records for Simsbury, Connecticut, where Beriah himself said that he was born (per his paperwork to obtain a pension for his Revolutionary War service).

Today a new DNA match on Ancestry DNA showed up linking my father’s line to Abigail Griffin’s line, which is a pretty important bit of evidence that the parentage of James and Beriah is indeed what I had thought.  The link shows that I’m potentially related to this descendant of Sgt. John Griffin through Abigail Griffin’s aunt Mary Griffin:

It’s possible, of course, that our common DNA match is not this line (we could be related in some other way), but it’s unlikely.

Unfortunately, there are still a lot of questions left to answer: Who were the parents of John Thomas?  Who were the parents of Beriah’s wife Elizabeth Hutchinson (1743-1814)?  But at least this is a compelling bit of evidence that John Thomas and Abigail Griffin were, in fact, the ancestors of James S. Thomas.
