In the year 1733, when Christian IV. King
of Denmurk, and his consort, Sophia Magdalena,
visited their Norwegian dominions, they took up
their residence in the house of Colons! Colbiurnson
in Frederickshald. The colonel, for the diversion
of his illustrious guests, exhibited before
them what is called a Jubilee Wedding. There
were four couples married, all rustic people, invited
from the adjacent country, and out of these,
there was none under a hundred years old; so
th:it all their ages put together, made upwards
of eight hundred years! Their names were Ole
Torveson Sologsteen, who lived eight years afterwards,
and his wife Kelje ten years; Jern
Oer, who lived six years after, and his wife Ingen,
who lived seven years; Ole Besoleca and
his wife N.; and Hans Folasken, who lived
ten years after, and brought with him Joram Gallen,
who was not his wife, but being a hundred
years old, he borrowed her for this ceremony;
she also lived ten years afterwards.
These eight married people made themselves
extremely merry at this public wedding; and the
women, according to the custom of the country
on bridal occasions, danced with green wreathe
upon their heads. At their departure, each
couple received from their majesties a handsome
present to carry home.
