Bibelen eller den Hellige Shrift, New York, American Bible
Society, 1850. This is a medium-sized, Norwegian Bible
printed in New York.
Jens Stokland (Stockland) and wife Magdalena are found in the
US Census in Whitewater, Walworth County, Wisconsin with
sons Elmer and Albert. Magdalena was born in Norway, but
Jens and both sons were born in Wisconsin. Both of Jens'
parents are full were born in Norway.
The secondary family leaf (which usually contains births and
deaths) is missing from this volume.
This Bible is in the possession of Tracy St. Claire and transcribed
to the best of my ability. The Norwegian transcription is done
without any knowledge of the language or appropriate font.
