Biography

SVEINUNG TARALDSSON was born at UDDEDALEN, as was his younger brother Torjus. The family then moved to BYGGLAND, where his two youngest brothers were born. The Kviteseid Gardssoga suggests that the Byggland farm was sold when SVEINUNG and GUNNHILD moved to STRÅND, but that may not be accurate as their son AANUND SVEINUNGSSON continued to live at BYGGLAND.

SVEINUNG died July 8, 1840, at STRÅND u:Byggland. GUNNHILD died there Mar 3., 1847.

In recent times it has been used as a tourist motel. When his father moved to Byggland, Sveinung remained at Versto. He married and had four children there. The last of the four was born in 1881. Two years later, Sveinung and his family immigrated to Jackson County, WI. They lived in York and the area north of there, known as Timber Creek. Four more children were born.

Det er truleg at Eivind Steffason Hustveit kjøper garden av han i slutten av trettiåri -- for SVEINUNG og GUNHILD flyt til Strånd og døyr der. (SVEINUNG 1840, GUNHILD 1847.)

He is then himself a bonde [peasant farmer] at øvre Bygland until the 1830's. A son Tarald (Homme 48) d[ies] at Bygland in 1832 (age 25).

It is likely that Eivind Steffason Hustveit (Hustveit 9) buys the farm from him at the end of thirty years. -- before Sveinung and Gunhild move to Strånd and die there. (Sveinung 1840, Gunhild 1847.)
