Signe was born Jan. 2, 1878 in Bergen, Norway. She died on 13 Jan. 1969 at Bozeman, Montana. Her father was Hans Nordgulen Mese Kjellevold born at Nordgulen, Norway in 1841 and died Jan. 1, 1925 near Nordgulen. Her mother was Ragnhild Monsdatter Henricsbo born 1854 and died Jan. 23, 1925

I just looked through old messages, and thought I would search for your names in the 1865 census for Norway. I found Ragnhild or Ragnhilde Monsdatter, 12 years old at Henriksbø farm in Eivindvik parish, Sogn og Fjordane. Her father is Mons Hanssen, 44 years old, and her mother is Dorthea Siren Schelderup Ottersdatter, 35 years old.
They have four other children as well. Olai (16), Hans (4), Barbara Petrine (15) and Brithe (9).
It seems like there are a lot of houses on the farm, and that Mons has several brothers living in the other houses. Dortheas mother seems to be living here as well. Her name is Pitrine Dorthea Schelderup Johannesen, 65 years old.

There are no Hans with the right age living at Kjellevold farm in 1865, but there are eight boys named Hans aged between 22-26 years old living in Eivindvik parish at the time. One of them is living in Nordgulen school district witch is within Eivindvik as well. I would guess that one of theese boys is the right one, and that he is eather born at Kjellevold, or that he and his family moved there after he got married. Theese young men all have their lastnames after their fathers firstnames. I would guess that your Hans changed that into using the name of the farm and the place he came from as familyname instead.
I hope this was new to you. I can check it out some more later.

I found Signes parents and siblings at Kjellevål farm in 1900.
Her father goes by the name Hans Andersen born 1841, and mother of course as before Ragnhild Monsdatter. Their children are Rasmus Olai b. 1875, temperarily working in Mundheim, Hardanger. Dorthea Helene b. 1885, works at a farm. Gjertine Andrin, b.1887, Andreas, b.1890 and Harald, b.30.7.1900. Signe is listed as well, but only with the firstname Sygni, and she has been overlined from the record, probably because she had allready left for America.??
Since I now know her fathers lastname was Andersen, I will check were he lived in 1865.

Hans Andersen Nordgulen/Kjellevål

I believe to have figured out where Hans lived in 1865, and his parents as well.
A Hans Anderssen, 26 y.old is working at the farm Næse in Nordgulfjorden and Rutledal schooldistrict in 1865. In the same district, at the farm Nordgulen, Anders Hanssen, 60 y.old and Synneve Pedersdatter also 60 is living. They are both born in Lindås parish, Hordaland. You can be pretty sertain that Anders Hanssen and Synneve Pedersdatter are the parents of Hans Anderssen who is Signes father, since they are from Nordgulen farm. It is a little more unsertain weather the Hans Anderssen who works at Næse farm is the same Hans Anderssen, but he is the onlyone that fits the description in that area. Of course, he could be living in a neigbour county, I will be sure I check that out too.

I am just putting my name out for my relatives in Norway. My Grandfather John came over to the USA in appx. 1918. He passed away in 1972. When he came over he changed his last name to Chellevold. My wife and I, along with my parents live in Joplin, Missouri, and there are Chellevold's in Tennessee, Wisconsin and other states in the USA. Take care to all.
