Torger died only 12 years old in 1870.

He lived 24 hours, unconscious the last 10 hours.

9. Østen (1874-1971)

married to Berta Bjelland, Berthold, North Dakota.

"My grandfather was Osten, the youngest of Johan's siblings. Osten was born in 1874 and came to America with his brother Torger in the 1890's. He spent some time working in a gold mine in Colorado and also spent some time in the Mayville area which is where he met my grandmother Bertha Bjelland who was born near Hjelmeland. I believe the other connection to the Mayville area was perhaps other Norwegians from the Erfjord and Hjelmeland area who moved there. Osten and Bertha married and moved to a farm near Berthold, North Dakota. Brother Torger ended up in another farm about 15 miles away; he had no children.

Osten and Bertha had 8 children 6 who lived to be adults: Clara, Bill, Anna, Oscar, Elmer, Lilly (they are all deceased). My father was Elmer who took over the farm from Osten and my siblings are Dennis, Sheila, and Keith. Keith still farms the land but does not live on the farm. Bernt took over Torger's farm near Tagus." (from Bryce Kilene, USA).
