Moeseje and Gulleneje i Gran Question

Classification: Query

Surnames: Ness, Olsen, Syversen
I have traced the Ness ancestors back to Gran, Oppland and to the Hval farm (see freepages link at nessancestors for a completed history).

However, marriage record indicates that Ole Olsen (who emigrated in 1866 to America and then changed his name to Ness around 1880) was from these two areas (Busted = Moeseje) and (Fodestad = Gulleneje i Gran).

I suspect that Ole's father - Ole Syversen left the Hval farm and went to these locations, where Ole Olsen was subsequently born and lived.

It would be helpful if anyone had information as to the Hval farm location, or where Moeseje or Gulleneje might be. Ulimately, I attempting to determine why Ole chose the Ness surname.
