1. He was born on 1849 or 1850. I also have 1850. It is 1850 on the TO
   Skjeldal chart that I have from GT Schjeldahl. It says 1849 in TWO places; on
   the 1900 US Census; and in Historie om udvandringen fra Voss. 1849 is correct!
2. He was confirmed on 9 Oct 1864. I finally have got the answers to the
   outstanding questions regarding: · Ragnhild Halldorsdotter (Glymme,
   Skjeldal) born 1787 or 1788 · Torstein Olavsson (Skjeldal) born 1849 or
   1850 Ragnhild was according to the church register born in 1787. Torstein
   Olavsson was according to church registers born Nov 3, 1849 and baptized Nov 11,
   1849. He was confirmed Oct 9, 1864 together with his brother Knut who was born
   two years earlier. Probably Knut had to go for a longer preparation for
   confirmation due to lack of knowledge. All the information above will be added
   to the WebPages in the next update which hopefully will be during June. Best
   regards, Stefan

4. AKA: was Skjeldal, Highlandville, Winneshiek, Iowa. T.O Skjeldal
   Americanized his name to Schjeldahl as he came to America. His brother Erick and
   His uncle both used the American spelling. The "T" of T.O. is an enigma.
   Torstein is the most common spelling. Cemeteries of North Dakota has his

   Passenger 117). He also is know as Thorsten in Voss Census (Voss Norway 1865
   Census).
