Ole Randulf


 
Ole Randulf was born 06 Dec 1887 at Nry.  On 11 Jul 1909, just a few days before he was to be married, he drown while swimming. 

Lisa Hammer told of her memories of this event -

"When I was seven years old Adolph's older brother Ole drowned while swimming and just a few days before he was getting married.  That was terrifying.  The whole neighborhood were on edge.  The casket was black ...  His bride-to-be cried so bitterly I still can hear her.  I felt so sorry for her; she was so kind and good.  Neither flowers or food or sweet talk could take away the seriousness of death.  From that time I was afraid of deep water and I never learned to swim."
