Ole L Jordal - baptism

Here is the baptism record for Ole L Jordal (line #3), grandson of Sigri Sigursdatter and Ole Larson.

The second page includes the names of witnesses, none of which are known relatives on the Jordal side.   The siblings of Lars that eventually moved from Norway to the United States would not have occurred for another few years.    Ingeborg Halvorson listed was Isabelle's mother.

Ole was the first child born to Isabelle Cordelia (Halvorson) and Lars Jordal.     The church records states he was born December 30, 1875 and baptized a month later on January 30, 1876**.

*Church records in the upcoming weeks were provided by First Lutheran Church courtesy of Pastor Steve Dow, Faith Lutheran Church, Rochelle, Illinois.

**Historical records are filled with inaccuracies.  The funeral record indicates Ole was born December 31 1875.
