Iverdine Pedersdatter Travland - baptism

Iverdine Laura Johanna Pederson Travland was the second child born to Susanne (Iversdatter Skaar) and Peder Pederson Travland Jr.

Here is the Fister, Rogaland county, Norway baptism record.

Iverdine (entry #30) was born on July 7, 1870 and baptized on August (month is difficult to decipher) 18, 1870.    Witnesses included her grandmother, Sigri Rasmusdatter (Susanne's mother), aunt Martha Iversdatter Skaar and uncle Rasmus Iverson Skaar as well as cousin, Iverdine Olsdatter Finnestad and his uncle (my great great great grandfather), Ole Olson Finnestad.

Iverdine was the granddaughter of Taletta Larsdatter and Peder Pederson Travland Sr.

Right below the baptism record for Iverdine Pedersdatter Travland was her cousin, Niels Rasmusson (entry #31) born to Inge Nielsdatter and Rasmus Iverson Skaar (the brother of Susanne Iversdatter).     Peder Travland was listed as a witness; not sure whether that was Sr or Jr but most likely Jr and proof he had traveled from the United States back to Norway sometime after the initial trip to the US in 1868 to be with his wife, Susanne for the birth of Iverdine.
