Farmers at  Reinåmoen
1. Nils Reinåmo was the first tenant at Reinåmoen, which was mentioned for the first time in taxation lists dated 1697 and 1701. He seems to be the one who opened up this land to farming. We believe that farming at Reinåmoen started in about 1690. As a rule the first five years were not taxed.

In the regular tax list of 1701 there is mention of a new man at Reinåmo:

2. Lars Mogensen, age 40, with one son living at home, Anders, age 1. Lars Mogensen died  before June 16, 1718, when an inventory was made of his estate.

Lars came from Finnbakken in the Leirskar valley. In the 1666 census he was 3 years old.

3. Anders Larsen Reinåmo, ca. 1700 – 1743, was the tenant after his father here at Reinåmoen. He was married to Marith Pedersdatter Forsbakk, on October 16, 1718. Their children were:

  • Marith. Baptised February 12, 1720.
  • Lars. Baptised on Midsummer's Day, 1722, died March 22, 1782. He was the farmer at Reinåmoen after his father.
  • Peder. Baptised August 27, 1724, buried June 1, 1743.
  • Ellen. Baptised February 23, 1727.

In 1725 Anders Larsen Reinåmo was summoned to court by Herr Reinholdt Tostrup - vicar of Rødøy - for failing to deliver an order of timber to build a new church in Rødøy. The timber was due to be collected in spring, and when the vicar's people came to fetch it, they got nothing. It seems the case withered away. The vicar of Rødøy got his church timber from elsewhere, and there was no further case against Anders Larsen.

It would seem that people in the area trusted Anders Larsen Reinåmo. At the age of 31 he and Aron Agustinussen - farmer at Holmslett - were appointed by the farmers of Rana (and Vefsn) to go to Copenhagen - the Capital of Denmark/Norway - to complain about the unfair taxes that were levied on the tenants.

On June 6, 1743 there was an inventory after Anders Larsen Reinåmo and surviving wife Marith Pedersdatter.

4. Lars Andersen Reinåmo, born 1722, was married on September 29, 1745 to Malena Kristine Nilsdatter. She died around 1775. Their children were:

  • Erik Larsen. Baptised October 23, 1746.
  • Anders Larsen. Baptised January 23, 1748 and 1757.
  • Rakel Christine Larsdatter. Baptised January 19, 1749.
  • Nils Jakob Larsen. Baptised January 6, 1751.
  • Peder Larsen. Baptised February 2, 1753.
  • Ole Larsen. Baptised May 15, 1755.
  • Adrian Larsen. Baptised January 9, 1757.
  • Ellen Dorthea Larsdatter. Baptised August 17, 1759.
  • Andrine Marie Larsdatter. Baptised September 11, 1763.
  • Beret Anna Larsdatter. Baptised November 19, 1766.
  • Nils Larsen. Baptised October 6, 1768. Drowned in the river Røssåga in 1782.

Widower Lars was married in 1777 to Johanna Samuelsdatter Villmo, baptised March 4, 1753, died November 7, 1825. They had 3 children:

  • Samuel Larsen. Born October 13, 1777.
  • Malena Kristine. Born October 26, 1779. Married at Samuelmoen.
  • Marit. Born May 9, 1781, died March 4, 1782.

Lars Andersen Reinåmo died March 22, 1782, and widow Johanna Samulesdatter was married again on July 6, 1783 to Gabriel Larsen Oldernes.

5. Gabriel Larsen Oldernes, baptised March 31, 1755, died April 12, 1829, was the eldest son of Marit Danielsdatter Oldernes and Lars Gabrielsen Geitvik. Being the eldest son he was supposed to take over his parents' farm, but he preferred Reinåmoen, and, so they say, widow Johanna, to Olderneset.

Together with Johanna he had 7 children:

  • Marit Gabrielsdatter, born September 1,1783, died April 10, 1853.
  • Davine Gabrielsdatter, born June 13, 1785. Married at Nerleir, died 1873.
  • Pernille Gabrielsdatter, born June 13, 1787. Married at Meland, died 1855.
  • Lars Gabrielsen, born May 13, 1790, died 1872.
  • Karen Gabrielsdatter, born August 5, 1792. Married at Millingsjord, died 1855.
  • Johanna Gabrielsdatter, born April 4, 1795. Married at Meland, died 1865.
  • Elisabeth Gabrielsdatter, born June 26, 1796, died 1869. Married in 1821 to Peder Augustinussen at Lille Brygfjeld 2

All children were living at home at the time of the 1801 census.

In 1825 Reinåmoen was officially split into two farms, North and South Reinåmo. Gabriel's son, Lars, got the Southern part (Unit No 1), and his daughter Marit the Northern part (Unit No 2) , together with her husband, John Pedersen. The actual splitting-up of the farm must have been made some years earlier, around 1810.

Old Gabriel and wife are believed to have moved across the creek to South Reinåmo at the split-up.

Farm Unit No 2

6. John Pedersen Reinåmo, born 1784 at Nilsmoen, Herringbygda. He was married in 1809 to Marit Gabrielsdatter here (eldest child above). He still kept his legal rights to Nilsmoen. John died at age 69 as "kårmann" at Nilsmoen. ("kår" means that former farmers and their families have certain legal rights after they retire and grow old, the right of a house, etc.). Buried in Herringbygda in Vefsn.

John Pedersen and Marit Gabrielsen had these children:

  • Maren Johnsdatter, born 1810, died 1859. Married at Nerleir to Henrik Larsen.
  • Johanna Johnsdatter, born 1811, died 1892. Married at Bjurselmo to Mattias Davidsen. 12 children.
  • Per Johnsen, born 1813, died 1898. Farmer at Reinåmo. 3 children.
  • Gabriel Johnsen, born 1818, died 1890. Lived at Reinåmo, and as a bachelor he had a child with Andrine Jeremiassen Røsvassbukt. 2 children.
  • Ane Marie Johnsdatter, born 1820, died 1899. Married to David Pedersen at Stien (Bjerkalia). 7 children.
  • Ole Johnsen, born 1823, died 1907. In 1863 he was a farmer at Flotmo in Elsfjord and married to widow Pernille Henriksdatter. No children.
  • Johan Johnsen, born 1826, died 1869. Was a farmer at Finneide and married to widow Ragnhild Johanna.

7. Per Johnsen Reinåmo, the eldest, was the farmer after his father. He was married on July 12, 1846 to Karen Arntsdatter Trettbakk, born July 23, 1815, died August 6, 1898. They had 3 children:

  • Arnt Pedersen, born Feb 22 (or 20), 1846. Emigrated to the USA (Baldwin, WI) on August 5, 1882.
    One daughter out of wedlock in Norway, Karen Arntsdatter, born March 27, 1881.
  • Johan Pedersen, born October 16, 1847, died December 21, 1924. Farmer at Reinåmoen.
  • Maren Gurine Pedersdatter, born January 2, 1852, died January 29, 1852, aged only 4 weeks.

Per Johnsen was good at distilling booze, and he often had a bit too much to drink. The public road ran straight through his farm at that time, and people often stopped to have a rest. They were often treated to a drink or two.

Per and his uncle Lars (at South Reinåmo) built boats together. At the hand-overs they had drinks to go with the settlement and the price was discussed with the customers. Now, Lars gave Per too much to drink so that he couldn't follow the discussion. Thus Per was made a poor man, and by the time Ane (his daughter-in-law) came to Reinåmoen the economy was bad. She has said at first they only had a log for a pillow.

8a. Arnt Pedersen Reinåmo, born February 22, 1846, died Nov 23, 1924 in Fargo, North Dakota. Arnt was farming together with his brother Johan (8b). They took over the farm some time between 1865 and 1875. Arnt went to America in 1882, sailed from Trondheim on August 3. In the USA he married Lorentse Olava Iversdatter, born October 12, 1857 at Smalsundmoen in Hemnes, she died 1939 in Fargo, North Dakota. Arnt was buried at Hemnes cemetery along the Red river south of Fargo.

Before Arnt left he had a daughter with Olava Zachrine Jacobsdatter, born 1849, from Trettbakk:

  • Karen Jakobea Arntsdatter, born March 27, 1881, died 1951, married at Øverleir.

With his wife Lorentse he had a son:

  • Peter Peterson, born 1884 in Baldwin, Wisconsin.

8b. Johan Pedersen Reinåmo, born October 16, 1847, died in December 1924. Johan was the farmer after his father. He was married to Ane Iversen Tverrå, born February 15, 1839, at Tverråen, died at Reinåmoen on March 4, 1916. They only had one child:

  • Petra Kristine, born March 6, 1881, died April 15, 1935.

Being 8 years younger than her sister Gisken, Ane was living and working in Gisken's house at farm unit No 1  (farmer c: Peder Pedersen), and, obviously, that's how Johan met her. There was a maid at his own farm who was also interested in Johan, and this caused tension between house-wife Ane and her maid for a long time.

Johan and Ane didn't want their daughter to grow up as an only child, so they took in a girl of 6 years from Villmoen, Anna Eriksen, to be raised together with Petra. Johan Pedersen was a tenant after his father on his mother Karen's contract, until the farm was bought in 1885. Johan wasn't the oldest son so he obtained written permission from his brother in America to buy the farm. Ane had a bit of money from her native Tverrå, so they were lucky to be in a financial position to buy.

Johan kept in touch with his brother Arnt for as long as he lived, but Arnt's son Peter couldn't write Norwegian so they lost contact.

Mother Karen lived until 1898.

9. Gulle H. Hansen, born January 25, 1865 to parents Hans Gullesen, from Bjerkadal, and Marit Iversen, from Trettbakk, farmers at Jamtjord in Leirskardalen. He was supposed to be the farmer at his parents' farm, but he married Petra, Johan's daughter, and moved here. Together they had 7 children:

  • Johan, born August 18, 1902, died 1918. No children.
  • Hanna, born January 7, 1905, died 1992. No children.
  • Georg, born July 28, 1907, died 1921. No children.
  • Bergljot, born July 8, 1911, died 2003. No children.
  • Ane, born November 16, 1916, died 1937. No children.

Johan, Georg, Hanna and Bergljot got a joint deed to the farm in 1944. Johan was the farmer and Georg had the forest and the saw-mill. When Johan married, his siblings moved to another location on the farm and built new houses there.

The farming part was let for a period of 10 years starting in 1983.

11. Kari Reinåmo, born August 15, 1954. She took over the farm in 1993 from her mother and aunt. Married in 1980 to Carl-Anders Olsson, born November 22, 1946 in Nyköping, Sweden. They had 3 children:

  • Lovise Zachrine, born June 7, 1835, died after 1890 in Washington state. Emigrated to the USA in 1869.  Listed in the 1885 census for Dakota territory (Richland county) in the same group as her brother Gabriel. At that time she was married and had 6 children. Her eldest, Sakrine (Jacobine),  was born in Norway. Lovise married Johan Petter Mathiassen, her cousin Johanna's son. They were married in Korgen on June 30, 1867.

After Zachrine's death in 1836 Lars was married again on July 16, 1837 to her 16 years younger sister, Kirsten Samuelsdatter, born 1814 at Nerleir 5, died abt. 1895 in Minnesota. Lars and Kirsten had 4 children:

Maren (Mary) and Jacob settled in Irving twp, Kandiyohi county, Minnesota. In abt. 1896 they moved to Cass county, MN. Lena was born in July 1877 in Norway, probably in Vefsn. They had five more children in America, all born in Irving: August Rossie (1881), Elmer Martin (1888), John M (1889-1918, killed in WW1), Ludwig "Lewis" Edmar (1891) and Emma Laurina (1895). The family settled in Irving in 1879.  In 1890 Jacob bought the NW 1/4 of SE 1/4 Section 9, Irving Township. They sold this land in 1896, and moved to Home Brook Township in Cass County, Minnesota, where Jacob bought land in Section 22 in 1902.  The family lived there until at least 1905, but can't be found in the 1910 census. The family was rather poor when they lived in Irving. In 1894 a doctor in New London took up a collection to get shoes for some poor children in the township, and Jacob's family was included in the effort. Jacob must have died right around 1910, and then the family moved to Rainier, Oregon. Maren died on 10 Aug, 1937.

The protocol for emigrants (http://digitalarkivet.uib.no/) shows one Kjerstine Samuelsdatter, from Hemnæs, age 65, who went by ship from Trondheim on June 12, 1879. Her destination is listed as Atwater, Minnesota. The age is right, and she had children in Minnesota. The farm had been sold, and there was nothing to keep her here. She appears in the 1880 census for Kandiyohi county as Christine Samoset. She was still living with her daughter Maren in 1895.
