Kirsti was born April 12,

Fossum and his family, in which she was a servant girl.
In 1835 she lives with her parents and brothers Halvor (13) and Ole (3) and sister Karen (6) at Aasen under Foss. We find the family there again in 1845. Brother Halvor (22) has now married Anne Anundsdatter (25) and they also live in the same house with their little son Anders (1).
