From "The Story of Norwegian Islanders in the Columbia River" “The 5th of January 1876
Ole Mathius ANDERSEN’S half brother, Hans Andersen, and his wife, Pernille Klausdatter,
rowed from their home on the island of Kilvær to visit friends on the island of Rognan, an hour's
row away. On the way home a storm took them by surprise. They managed to land on small
skerry, but they froze to death, orphaning 3 boys. The oldest boy was fifteen, and able to earn
his own living. The two youngest were only 1 and 11 years old. Their mother, Pernille, had
nursed Ole's brother Nils and sister Elen Anna when they got typhus. Typhus killed his sister
and mother, but Nils and Elen Anna survived. Ole took Pernille's boys into his home. … When
the carpenters laid the floor in Tåvær (in 1871), they had no way of knowing that eleven of the
thirteen children would leave the island. They traveled all the way to the Pacific coast of
America to earn their living. Most of them never returned to their childhood home. Ole and
Petrine were familiar with America. Ole's brother, Benjamin, lived in Tacoma. Originally all
three brothers, Benjamin, Ole, and Nils planned to emigrate. Ole Andersen bought the house
from his stepmother, Anne Christine Christensdatter; when his mother, sister and father died in
the space of a few years.... one of the carpenters was Ole's brother Nils Andersen. ....It was Nils
that put in the attractive wainscot in the parlor in the house. A few years after he laid the new
floor in Tåvær...the first years Nils, his wife, and his small son lived in the house on Tåvær
together with his brother Ole. Their sister Christine, also lived there for two years, until she was
19, and helped her brother run the household. Eventually Petrine came into Ole 's life and there
was a wedding to celebrate in the house on Tåvær. The oldest part of the house was built in
1793. Almost eighty years later it was necessary to put in a new floor....
....Ultimately the household consisted of Ole, Petrine, a maid, a hired hand, and fifteen
children. Thirteen of the children were Ole and Petrine's and two were foster children. ..., the
hired hand, and maid already were crowded in the second floor. Ole, Petrine, and the youngest
children slept in the pantry. The family ate, worked, and talked in the parlor and the kitchen. . .
...There was only one other family on the island. Nils Peder Andersen, fish buyer and
cargo shipowner, and his family lived in the "Lower house"... Nils Peder ran a small store, and
in 1912 they got a post office. Around them, in all directions, were thousands of islands and
skerries where two or three families lived, like on Tåvær. Hundreds of people lived in this island
world on the coast of Helgeland, and they came to Tåvær to buy sugar and flour, some coffee
and tobacco. Once in a while they bought clothing, but for the most part they had to be selfsufficient. They came to Tåvær to work on the "klippfiskbergene", the bare rocks skirting the
sea where thousands of cod were laid to dry. When dry, the rockfish were exported to countries
in southern Europe…
In the barn were five cows and nine sheep. They provided the family with milk, butter,
meat, and wool. The family grew their own grain for bread and planted five barrels of potatoes
each year. In the summer the cows were out in the pasture, and the maid and the girls walked
out to milk them every morning and evening. In the winter the cows ate hay. Since every straw
__________________________________________________________________________

counted, haying was hard work. They boys cut the hay and the girls raked it and spread it to dry
on the ground.
In the boathouse lies the boat that they use to fish the cod, herring, and pollack, also
haddock and redfish. In the spring they hunt seal. In a good breeze the boat with its viking
lines is a real fast sailer. Ole and his oldest sons rowed to the islands farther north to
participate in the best fishing industry in Norway. When the cod came in from the Barents Sea
to spawn in the shallows of Westfjord, thousands of Norwegian fishermen also came, to earn the
cash necessary for their household economies. Ole's oldest son, Petter, left on the neighbor's
cargo ship. They others joined the crews of other boats. However, thirteen childbirths took their
toll with Petrine's health, and eventually Ole had to stop fishing in Lofoten… The nine brothers
all eventually settled on Puget Island, Washington. In the early 1920's, the island was called
"Little Norway" since the 600 or so families that lived on it were all from Norway.”
