      From a letter written to Jerry Lowell by Hjalmar Smevik, dated November 20, 1995, living in Oslo:
      “The following is a summary of my knowledge of our common ancestors: Hans Andreas Jakobsen, 30 Dec. 1833-11 Feb. 1914, a farmer and fisherman, lived at Bjørnskinn on Andøya in Vesterålen. He came from Skjolde, eight kilomettres south of Bjørnskinn. His parents were Pernelle Hansdtr. and Jakob Andreassen.

      “He had managed to acquire a medium-sized property, with animals and farm implements and nets to fish with in the winter. He was a hard worker, and well-liked.

      “He was married twice, both times to women from Kolvereid in Namdalen, in North Trøndelag.

      “His first wife was Pauline Olsdtr. (1834-1870). Children: Kristine (1838), Vik in Sortland; Adolf (1859), Å in Andøy; Hans (1862), Vik in Sortland; Anna (1864), Myre in Øksnes; Marie (18xx), Medby in Hinnøy; and Helmer (1870-1957), Tromsø. By the way, of all the men who were in polar explorer Roald Amundsen’s service, Uncle Helmer was the only one who went through the North West Passage (Greenland - Nome), to the South Pole and through the North East Passage (Novaja Semlja - Nome).

      “After the death of Pauline, he remarried, this time Johanne Paulsdtr. (1844-1918), Kolvereid. Children: Petra (1872), BJørnskinn; Amanda (1875), Haugnes in Andøy; Simon (1878), Bjørnskinn; Hilda (1880-1972), Bjørnskinn; Daniel (1883), Bjørnskinn; Bernhard (1885), America; and Ragnar (1887), Haugnes in Andøy.

      “My mother often liked to tell of how happy they were in their childhood home. But no-one used the word half-brother or half-sister. All 14 were brothers and sisters--the best proof that H A J together with first Pauline and then Johanne, managed their most important task: to create a good, comfortable home for a large family.”

      [GRL note for follow-up: Evelyn Johnson recalled that a Harold Hanssen, younger than Arthur Vik, worked on their farm for a while and then came out to Seattle. He married a widow named Agnes but they had no family:

      1930 Census: Washington, King, Seattle:
      Hansen, Harold, head, owns, $2200, 39, married at age 30, born in Illinois, father born in Norway, mother born in Holland, stevedore, waterfront;
      Agnes, wife, 46, married at age 37, born in Iowa, father and mother born in Virginia.]
