Pioneering Women Part I

Ingeri Olsdatter Mælum av Lie


Ingeri Olsdatter Mælum av Lie was born on 5 December 1832 on the Mælum av Lie farm in Bruflat Sokn in what was then the parish of Sør Aurdal (now Etnedal).  She married Ole Knudsen of Lie farm around 1855 and later lived on Thorshaugen and Fjeld farms, both in Bruflat.  Her husband, Ole Knudsen, died on Fjeld farm in December of 1873 and Ingeri left Norway nearly 10 years later aboard the Angelo with her youngest children.  Her two eldest sons had already immigrated to the United States.
