There is also an Øverlie farm in Lom (and one in Øyer, and probably others). Paul (Pål) Olsen Øverlie was born in 1879 to Ole Eiriksson (b. ca 1852 Kjekahågån i Skjåk) and Berit Pålsdatter Øverlie (b. 1851 at Øverlie nordistugu). He had a brother Erik about a year older. The family including both brothers emigrated to America in 1881, where they may also have used the surname of Hagen [from the father's farm name]. Paul is noted in the Lom bygdabok as having come back to Norway, and leaving for America again in 1909. (from Lom bygdabok, vol. 2, p. 223).
