Paul Nielsen is listed in various locations or farms in the Loten
region just east of present day Hamar. This hilly region is about
a hundred miles north of Oslo. This is about the same latitude as
Anchorage, Alaska. Sondre Maleum farm where Poul Nielsen was born
is about 5 miles from Tomter and the Vallset Kirke where he was
christened. It a fairly heavily forested area. There could
be some tough winters here although fire wood is abundant. I
suspect that the families here cut logs for houses built in area.
The Helgeaasen farm would be even more remote and further to the
south-east. I have not found either of these farms so far on
present day maps. Large families with limited farm land and
short growing seasons caused many to see immigration as a way for
the younger generations to prosper.
1805 - Parish register shows the birth of "Paavel"Paul Neilson, son of Neil Paulson of Maluem and Margrete Hansdatter. Norway Archives, Hedmark, Romedal Parish digitized parish record. page 21 [http://www.arkivverket.no]
1821, March 29 birth - bapt 23 April 1821. Marthe
Eriksdatter is baptised in Romedal (about fifty years before the
photo above) to Erik Hansen and Johanne Amundsdatter at the farm
Evenrud. Other witnesses were also on Evenrud.
The census records show Paul Nielsen to be in various farms in the Romedal region.
The movement from one location to another indicates to me that he probably didn't own the land on which he was living. He could possibly have been something on the order of an itinerant farm laborer.
She had a second daughter, Johanne Larsdatter, 2 Sep 1830 Helgeaaren, confirmed 5 Oct 1845 .
She had a third daughter, Lavine Larsdatter, born 1 Jan 1833 (probably in Helgeaasen), baptized 13 Jan 1833, and confirmed 1 Oct 1848 (the town name is illegible "Nord.....eie") [records of Maurice Jenson]
1835, 19 Jan. - birth of his first daughter, Lina
Paulsdatter, took place probably in Helgeaasen.
1836, Dec 23 - Mari Jensdatter dies at age 36 in Romedal. She's buried on January 8, 1837.
1843, 25 "Mai" - Poul Nielsen marries again to
Martha Eriksdatter in Skaaraashagen, Vallset (Tomter) Hedmark,
Norway. He's identified as 38 years old and she is 22. This
record also identifies the father of Paul as Niels Paulsen and
Martha's father as Erik Hanson. [Norway Archives, Romedal
1829-1846, 1843, page 219.
The name of the farm is difficult to
transcribe. It may be the farm Skaaraashagen or
Skåråshagen that is listed in the Romedalboka, Vol. 4, part
1. I have not been able to find this text for a

1865- Census records of Romedal Parish, Norway shows Even Pauls (Paul's son). with his mother, Marthe Erikd. (Erik's daughter) living on the land of Mathias Christians. Sund, a parish preacher within the "Rohne Skoledistrikt." It seems times were tough for Even's mother, at this time 45 years old. Even's father had died when he was about nine years old. His mother is apparently working here for the parish preacher's family as a milk maid as part of the support needed for the family. Even is eighteen and working on the farm with his brother Johan Magnus and his sister Pauline. Another daughter Martha seems to be working as a house servant for anther family in the area.

Mathea Paulsdatter perhaps living in Nordryn and
may have moved to Oslo. Maurice Jenson says that she is may have
been a singer in Oslo. [Maurice Jenson After Paul Nielsen's
death Martha is known to have lived in these farms. I have
a more complete history of the
several Rohne farms around Løten.

living at Løken Vestre in the Røhne census district with the

1870, Dec 11- Martin Rasmusen is born to Hellene
Paulsdatter and Rasmus Olsen. [LDS Norway, baptisms,
1634-1927] Hellene never married to Rasmus Olsen.
The Norway Archive photo shows that Martin was illegitimate but that Even Paulsen Rohne and Pauline Paulsdatter were also witnesses to the baptism. Being "illegitimate" was a fairly common notation. It seems that some couples would live together for some years while even having children until they finally got around to marriage. [Norwegian Nat. Archives, digitized parish records, Hedmark, Romedal, Official Parish Register, 1871, page 083]
1871, Jan 22 - Martin Rasmusen is baptized in Romedal, Hedmark. [LDS Norway, baptisms, 1634-1927]
1872, Oct - Johan Magnus Poulsen, a bachelor, born
in 1844 is supposed to have "out-migrated" from Norway.
However, the death date I have shows that he may not have done
that and may have died prior in January of 1872 by drowning or
the year may be 1873 for his death.
