Haldor was both a blacksmith and carpenter and was moreover a very good farmer.  On April 17, 1762 he was released from the army after seven years of service.  Wife - Margretha Larsdatter Glimme, d. 1797, lived first at Roe (1761) and Tøn (1764), then Gjøstein (1776) and finally came to Glimme on the twelfth of November, 1777 with his brother-in-law, Claus Larsen Glimme.

4c Rognald Haldorsen Glimme (b: 1772 - d: 1825 (53) wife Margretha Endresd. Opheim (Aug 25, 1776 - Sep 30, 1839) m: May 26, 1799

Rognald was released from the army on December 31, 1805, after ten years of service. He was a steadfast and wise farmer, as attested by the numerous roads and long stone walls running across his land. He was not a talkative man. He expressed his  views with emphasis and to good effect. He preferred to work quite alone. When walking over his land, he always had with him a pick and a crowbar. Any stone unfortunate enough to be discovered by Rognald half-buried in his land was forthwith pried out and added to a stone-pile, even though the work might take him all day. Ten children, of whom 3 sons died in infancy.

5g Knut Rognaldsen Glimme (b: Oct 18, 1820 - d: Nov 5, 1874 (54) wife Brita Johannesdatter Himle (Dec 26, 1819 - May 5, 1895)

(Britha's father, Johannes Himle, was both a canny farmer and one of the area's most accomplished blacksmiths, being especially well known for crafting the clasps on clothing chests and locks. Her father, Amund, was first a hired hand on a small farm called "Moatraa" below Mo in Granvin. He was a tambur (drummer?), and was in the the 1809–1814 war, during which he was promoted to battalion tambur. For a time he owned the Lae farm in Tykkebygden, Voss, and then bought the Himle farm, where he lived until his death. Amund was widely known for witticisms, of which he had a never-failing supply. The reason he got away from Moatraa was that his home burned to the ground one night, and he was only just able to save his wife and children. All of his possessions went up in flames, and he had no insurance. Later he said himself that the fire proved to be a great blessing, because thereby he escaped his lowly job.)

Knud R. Glimme came home from the military on December 31, 1852, after ten years of service. He was a longtime member of the school board, and chairman of the equality board in the early '60's, just when the new equality laws were beginning to be enforced in Voss, and he was also the first librarian of Voss' public library. He was an insightful and intelligent man, with good spiritual and physical strength, but his work was usually somewhat haphazard. Confronted with beginning a large task, he would think it over and delay starting for as long as possible. But once the job was begun, Knud worked with no holds barred. At the age of eighteen he was struck by lightning, and he bore the consequences of this for the rest of his life. After the bolt hit him, quite a while passed before signs of life showed in him again. His whole nervous system was badly shaken. After that day he was always able to foretell when thunder or lightning were approaching. Usually he would go to bed then, or keep absolutely still in the living room. He could not bear to be at home when it was time to slaughter livestock, but always took care to be away from the farm. He was usually rather melancholy and silent, read a great deal, and easily grasped shadowy philosophical problems. He greatest pleasure lay in writing and tinkering with his books. He wrote well, and expressed himself in a clear, nice, and correct manner.

His wife was of a decidedly different nature. She was not very big, fine-boned, and with a good figure, but she was unusually strong and energetic. She was on the go from morning til night, carrying heavy bales of hay around as well as the strongest workers did, and helping wherever needed. She was the soul of the place. She spun, wove, pressed, dyed, and sewed all the children's clothes, and made and sold women's hoods. She was the first person up in the morning and the last to bed at night; she did not seem to need rest. Four o'clock was her customary rising time, and she would go about humming small songs in her contentment with the world. Her sparkling good humor was contagious to the other members of her household. She was on the best of terms with all her neighbors. Many people sought her advice, which she gave willingly, but never offered without being asked. Her children regarded her with great love, esteem, and respect, and knowing her has marked their spiritual lives. Nine children.

6e Amund Knudsen Glimme (b: Aug 24, 1850 Norway - d: Feb 4, 1910 (59) Wisconsin, wife Anna O Spilde, Inger Westrem, Guri Larsdatter Finnestegen

Amund first emigrated to the USA September 20, 1875 on the National line to spend four years in America as a carpenter. He was a resident of Cambridge, Dane Co, Wisconsin when he married his first wife Anna Spilde Dec 11, 1877 in DeForest, Wisconsin. They had one son, Adolf Glimme. Anna passed away during child birth or soon after and Adolf was left in his aunt and uncle's (John O and Carrie Spilde) care when Amund returned to Norway.

While in Norway, Amund wrote this letter in 1886 to his brother and sister-in-law to ask how his son Adolf was doing.

Amund is listed as again emigrating from Norway on July 21, 1887 with:
     Guri Larsd. Finnestegen b. 1851
     Knut Amundson Glymme b 1880 d. Nov 19, 1900
     Bertine Amundsd. Glymme b. 1884
     Marthe Amundsd. Glymme b. 1885

Amund and his family with his second wife Guri settled in Poynette, Wisconsin which is close to where he lived previously. In addition to Knut, Bertine, and Marthe, there was a baby Louise who died as an infant - most likely before emigrating.

Amund's third marriage was to Inger Eriksen Westrem (married Oct 5, 1891). Children were Inger, Kenneth, Eddie, Alma, and Lillie.

Amund's brother Peder K. Glimme (1848 - 1907) also emigrated to Wisconsin to work as a carpenter. He married Madli Hansdatter Spilde who was his sister-in-law Anna's first cousin. Madli's father Hans and Anna's mother Brita were brother and sister.

7a Edward Cornelius Spilde (Adolf Glimme) (b: Sep 1, 1878 WI - d: 1952 (73) SD) wife Louise Marquardt

Farmer in Dakota, supposedly in fine financial conditions.   Adolf was adopted by his aunt and uncle John O. (1830-1917) and Carrie (1832-1905) when his mother Anna Spilde died.  Amund left his infant son in their care and returned to Norway for several years before returning again to Wisconsin.  Ed had moved with his adopted parents to Badger, SD in 1883 and later married Louise Marquardt.
