I am hoping that someone with access to the Balestrand Bygdebok can assist me with my question. Is Lars Larsson Ruud (born 1810) the son of Lars Olson Rud (or Ruud) and Magdelie Hansdtr. Ese? Lars Larsson married Britha Eriksdtr. Dale on 20 Apr 1835 and settled on the Rød gaard, next to Eithungjerde.
*Thank you for your assistance*
