|GULLIKSEN, Ole Martin
|Norway 13 July 1893
|17 March 1913
The SPRI records tell us that Gulliksen died on board the 'Thor I' which was at Godthul. He was struck on the head by a wooden toggle (knovel), which jumped out of the hole in the strip of blubber they were raising up onto the factory ship.
A relative of Anders Knudsen wrote and told us:
I have found some more informations about Ole Martin Gulliksen, where he was born,baptized, etc. He had 2 brothers and 1 sister in Norway, living in a place called Modum.
