Ole L Jordal - confirmation

I do not have not yet received First Lutheran Church of Lee, Illinois records beyond 1908 so the baptism records for Alfred Clarence Jordal the youngest child of Anna (Larson Jossendal) and Gunder Jordal or the last 5 children (Agnes, Kinnie, Gordon, Lillian and Evelyn) of my great grandparents, Ingeborg (Haldorsdatter Mæland) and Omund Jordal so I'll move onto the few confirmation records available.

Here is the confirmation record for Ole L Jordal (#3) grandson of Sigri Gunnersdatter and Ole Larson.

Ole, son of  Isabelle Cordelia (Halvorson)* and Lars Jordal was confirmed May 10, 1891.

*Isabelle was born in Illinois; had she been born in Norway, her last name would have been that of her father's first name, Sigursdatter.    The First Lutheran records have alternated between Sigursdatter and Halvorson, which may have been common at the time.
