Research on Peder Severin Andreassen (1903-c1935)[]

Harald Storaker writes in 2006: Peder Severin was born Feb 15th. Then on April 6th he was "hjemmedøpt" = baptized at home by a lay person. To the right I guess it should be written by whom. Korshavn was on an island, and for some reason, weather conditions or health conditions of the child, they did not take the chance to bring him to the church in Austad. On August 9th the baptism was confirmed in church by the pastor. In 1906 there was built a chapel in Korshavn. Just now they paint it and make it ready for 100 years anniversary. In 1969 the bridge to Korshavn was built. Then there was not so much need of a chapel on the island. But they still use it. There are services once in a month.


Peder Severin Andreassen (1903-c1935) is the second cousin, twice removed of Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ).
