Ole was born July 8, 1828 on the farm Holm in Gjerpen by parents Christian Davidsen Holm and Margrete Olsdatter Hobek. His father was dead in 1838, and Margrethe

Olsdatter remarried Peder Jacobsen Holm.  But in 1835 we find the family on Holm:

Lisbeth Nielsdatter, married, age 62

Christian Davidsen Holm’s father was David Gregorius Christiansen Holm, born 1754, and married Sept 16, 1784 to Anne Maria Sørensdatter. The father of David Gregorius was Christian Nielsen Høst, who died
April 14, 1791, at the age of 63. He was married in 1742 to Anne Clausdatter. He had earlier been married to Kirsti Helgesdatter.

I do not know what happened to him in America.
