There was one birth on the voyage, on June 6th, son of Peder Pedersen Rüde. There was also one death, on June 16th, Kirstine Ellingsdatter (71) died from dysentery. Like the year before the ship was mastered by Capt. Neils Th. Iversen. She had a a crew of 16.

All the following information is according to the Internet version of the church records of Vardal and the 1801 census:
Østen Olsen and Kirstine Ellingsdatter married 16. Des. 1819 in Vardal, and they had the following children:
Berte Maria 1821
Marthe 1827 (my great
great great grandmother)
"dead born boy" 1835
Randine 1839 (to Amerika 1869)
(where a range of years is given, it means that I've found that the child died young)
I don't have the baptism dates of Østen and Kirstine / Kjerstine yet, as the church records of Vardal around 1800 are VERY difficult to read, but transcriptions are "on it's way" and will probably be available on the Internet during this year.
Parents of Østen Olsen:
Ole Østensen, born about 1769, buried 6. Aug. 1805 (death date was normally not registered in the church records at that time)
Marte Johansdatter, born about 1778.
I have not found their marriage in the Vardal church records, so I guess they married somewhere else, which will normally imply that at least she was born outside Vardal.
They had at least 3 children: Østen, Johannes, Berte.
Parents of Kjerstine Ellingsdatter:
Elling Ellingsen, born about 1766
Berte Iversdatter, born about 1764, buried 15. Feb. 1808
They married 29. Sept. 1789 in Vardal. They had at least 4 children: Ingeborg, Even, Marie, Kjerstine.
After Berte's death, Elling remarried widow Berte Nielsdatter 22. Jan. 1810 in Vardal.
Above I've used both Kjerstine and Kirstine as her name was spelled differently at different occasions (quite common at that time); I've even seen Kjirstine.
