Denne vakre damen er Andrea Ølgård Gabrielsdatter Vågenes som vi kan kalle stammor til de norsk amerikanske familiene Rognsvåg og Alvær, og Viksund familiene i Norge. Siden vi ikke har bilde av mannen hennes og siden det i tidligere tider har vært vanlig og fokusere på stamfaren, vil jeg her ta utgangspunkt begrepet stammor. Andrea ble døpt 25 09 1836 i gamle Kinn kommune. Andrea`s mor var husmor Eli Pedersdotter Sørgulen døpt 30 12 1804, og hennes far var skolelærer Gabriel Pedersen Sørbotnen døpt 25 04 1802.
