Yes or else the two Carls simply have the same surname. One reason could be that they or their parents came from the same farm in Gausdal. Certainly that cemetery (Lone Rock) is the resting place of many people from Gausdal.

More about John Gundersen Skjestadstuen:

Not sure if the names are still confusing, as you mentioned in the other thread? But basically, in case some reader out there is interested, let's say a Norwegian person would have a first name and maybe a middle name, then would come his/her patronymic name, then would come an identifier name. Often the identifier name would be a place such as a farm. (You'll hear this referred to as the address name). The person's first three names remain constant, but the address name changes when they move. In the USA Norwegian immigrants chose a permanent family surname, per US customs. Some chose their patronymic name, some chose their place name (such as your family choosing the place name Skjeggestad). Some families were split: some children chose the place name and some a patronymic name (either their own or their father's). Once this first confusing era of choosing a name is past, then the families settle down (in the records) to a single surname.

g = gift = married
ug = ugift = unmarried
e = enke = widow
med Jord = with land?
Hmd = huusmand
Hans Kone = his wife
Deres Datter = their daughter
Hans Datter = his daughter
Tjener = servant/ hired help worker
og = and

From the other thread:

Would it be fair to say that "your" Martine's obituary gave her mother's name as Elice Hagen????

This would seem to fit "Lise" "Elise" "Elice."

Since we have now found out (from the other thread) that John Gundersen Skjeggestad immigrated as a single man in 1870 then it certainly could be that Lise and daughter Martine were traveling to him - that is, nothing posted in the thread implies differently as of yet.
