I am looking for a birth record for Anne Sophie Olsdatter to identify her parents, date of birth, and date of baptism. I believe she was born in Fåbro in Aker Parish based on comments in her marriage record and in the birth record of her daughter Oline Marie. Here is the information I have:

Fåbro is by the Lysaker river which today divides the capital Oslo from the neighboring municipality Bærum, which is west of Oslo. The Lysaker river was in earlier times called Fåd. Fåbro literally means the bridge across the river Fåd. The Fåbrofossen waterfall is also called Granfossen (Foss = waterfall). The spigerverk ("nail works") was located by this waterfall.

Tollev (Tolli) and Anne Sophie were engaged to be married 24 Sep. 1823: Tolli Hansen, Police sergeant, No. 25, 29 years old and Anne Olsdatter, 25 ½ year, Faabru Spigerverk. Oslo county, Aker, Best man´s statements nr. 6 (1821-1826), Best man´s statements 1823, no page no. Permanent pagelink: I cannot read the parish records very well, but I received this information from The Norwegian Emigration Cetner (Stavanger).

Anne Sophie married on 21 Nov 1823 to Tollev Hansen: Bachelor and Police sergeant No. 25 Tolli Hansen, 29 years and Maiden Anne Olsdatter, 25 ½ year. Oslo county, Aker, Parish register (official) nr. 12 (1819-1828), Marriage records 1823, page 482-483. Permanent pagelink:

Tolli Hansen and Anne Sophie Olsdatter had a son before marriage, born 17 May out of wedlock and bapt. 13 July 1823 by the name "Børre." Parents: Tollef Hansen from Faabroe Spigerverk and Maiden Anne Olsdatter, same place. Oslo county, Aker, Parish register copy nr. 4 (1819-1829), Birth and baptism records 1823, page 170-171. Permanent pagelink:

Their second child was daughter "Oline Marie" born 17 Aug 1824: Oslo county, Akershus slottsmenighet in Garnisonsmenigheten, Parish register (official) nr. 4 (1820-1828), Birth and baptism records 1824, page 128-129. Permanent pagelink:

Tolli and Anne had a third child born 18 Nov. and bapt. 26. Dec. 1826 by the name "Martine." Parents: Nail-smith Tollef Hansen and wife Anne Sophie Olsdatter, Faabro Verk. Oslo county, Aker, Parish register copy nr. 4 (1819-1829), Birth and baptism records 1827, page 398-399. Permanent pagelink:

Any assistance or guidance you could provide in helping me locate Anne Sophie's birth record or a positive identification in the 1801 census would be greatly appreciated.
