Hagen Fjærplassen Rykkja, my great-grandfather, had 1 brother (Ola 1821-?) and 2 sisters (Karen Malena Olsdatter, 1816-1900), (Jonetta Rykkja1828-1860)

Hagen's daughter, Berit, was my grandmother.

Hagen's brother, Oluf H. Rykkja(1857-1932), emigrated to America and had a daughter and 3 sons.  One of the sons, Oscar O. Rokke (1898-1984), married my aunt Sadie (Bethseidia Oline Satrum), sister of my father.  Because of this I am related 2 different ways to the Rokke family (by blood and by marriage.
