Parents of Ole Munson Venden (3-1)
MONS NILSSON VENDEN is the first tenant farmer we know of to have fanned "Venda", a
section of the large farm "Berge". Venda was set apart a bit, the area around these tenant
places was called "Bergabygde" (Berge-town). "Venda", meaning turn around, got it's name
because the place was used as a gathering (drop off) place whenever they transported logs
and lumber.
