NOTE: Two of Ole Hansen & Ragnhild Juulsdatter's children were married 5 days apart. Helena Olsdatter (who married Syver Madsen, and are my great grandparents) and Johan Olsen Aker (married Line Andersdtr) were married on June 3, 1870 (Helena & Syver) and June 8, 1870 (Johan & Line). I have reviewed the microfilm of these records, have a photo copy and they appear together on the same page with only one other couple between them. The other couple is Ole Andersen (father = Anders Johansen) & Maria Hansdtr (father = Hans Olsen). This couple is age 48 and 49 and is married on June 3, 1870. Syver & Helena are line 23 and Johan & Line are line 25 in this document. The source is microfilm #307297, Book 88, page 252 in the LDS records. I keep wondering if the June 3 is also a June 8 and vice verse, but so far can only determine that these were separate weddings and not a double wedding.
