Divorce*11 Jun 1928 Chippewa Co., Wisconsin; Jerry Colburn: Bertina's second husband, Madts, had to have left home in the mid '20s because Elroy was born in '19 and he talked about remembering him. Matt just pulled up `stakes' and left one day and it was felt he could not support that large of a family. Elroy had an inkling that he headed for Eau Claire and then possibly went back to Norway. If you ever run across anything concrete please let me know. Elroy tried but also ran into a 'brick wall'.

The divorce proceedings found as true, Bertha's complaint averring cruel and inhuman treatment. Evidence was given that, beginning in about July 1914, Matt began a course of cruel treatment and practiced personal violence against Bertha, calling her vile and indecent names, and striking and throwing things at her. Bertha's statement said that in the fall of 1914, Matt was convicted of having illicit intercourse with another woman and was sentenced to serve a year in state prison in Waupon. He was released after 7 months but was reported to continue cohabiting with women of bad character and drinking intoxicating liquors. She also stated that for the last year, Matt has been sleeping in a shack which he built adjacent to the barn building at Bertha's residence, and refused to sleep or eat in her home. Finally, she stated that Matt was not supporting the family financially, providing only about $20-$25 month, although he was employed steadily and was earning about $100/month. The record indicated that Bertha owned the home, it having come to her upon the death of her first husband.

Matt Fjelstad was served, but did not answer the summons or appear in court.

The divorce was granted and was filed on June 11, 1928 and filed on June 26, 1928. Bertha was given custody of the three children from the marriage (Mabel, Norman, and Elroy).

Biography* According to Joyce Brandvold, Ragnhild lived for a time in Bismark, North Dakota and eventually went to Seattle, Washington. 
Biography Seattle, King Co., Washington; Memories of Lucille James Brandvold (not necessarily all correct) about her husband's cousin: Tobias Galten and Ragnhild Jonsdatter had one more daughter being younger than Marit, who left the family in Stanley, Wisconsin. She didn't want anything to do with them. She moved to Seattle, Washington and married a master sergeant who was still in service. She had a daughter and a son. She traveled to Seattle with cousins of (Lucille's husband) Malvin by the last name of Dregsted. Lucille thinks that Judith (Ragnhild's sister) corresponded with this daughter and Lucille remembers seeing pictures of her children. She also remembers that this girl was very beautiful. She does not remember her name. [Dixie Hansen comments: The daughter Lucille is remembering is named Ragnhild. She was actually not younger than Marit (AKA May)… she was 2 years older. The man she married (20 years her senior) was Olaf Olson (or Olsen).]1

Note* Wikiepedia article on the accuasation and trial of Rebecca Nurse:

The Nurse family had been involved in a number of acrimonious land disputes with the Putnam family. On March 23, 1692, a warrant was issued for her arrest based upon accusations made by Edward and John Putnam. Upon hearing of the accusations the frail 70-year-old Nurse, often described as an invalid, said, "I am innocent as the child unborn, but surely, what sin hath God found out in me unrepented of, that He should lay such an affliction on me in my old age."

There was a public outcry over the accusations made against her, as she was considered to be of very pious character. Thirty-nine of the most prominent members of the community signed a petition on Nurse's behalf. At age 71, she was one of the oldest accused. Her ordeal is often credited as the impetus for a shift in the town's opinion about the purpose of the witch trials.
Her trial began on June 30, 1692. In accordance with the procedures at the time, Mrs. Nurse, like others accused of witchcraft, represented herself since she was not allowed to have a lawyer represent her. By dint of her respectability, many members of the community testified on her behalf including her family members. However the young Ann Putnam Jr. and the other children would break into fits and claim Nurse was tormenting them. Such so-called "spectral evidence" was allowed into the trial to show that Satan was afflicting others in the community at the behest of the accused. In response to their outbursts Nurse stated, "I have got nobody to look to but God." Many of the other afflicted girls were hesitant to accuse Nurse.

In the end, the jury ruled Nurse not guilty. Due to public outcry and renewed fits and spasms by the girls, the jury asked the magistrate that the verdict be reconsidered. The jury changed their verdict, sentencing Nurse to death on July 19, 1692. 
Death*19 Jul 1692 Salem, Massachusetts; Accused and convicted of witchcraft. Executed at the gallows5 
Burial* Her body was buried in a shallow grave near the gallows along with other convicted witches, who were considered unfit for a Christian burial. Nurse's family secretly returned after dark and dug up her body, which they interred properly on their family homestead.

In July 1885, her descendants erected a tall granite memorial over her grave in what is now called the Rebecca Nurse Homestead cemetery in Danvers (formerly Salem Village), Massachusetts. The inscription on the monument reads:

Rebecca Nurse, Yarmouth, England 1621. Salem, Mass., 1692.
O Christian Martyr who for Truth could die
When all about thee owned the hideous lie!
The world redeemed from Superstition's sway
Is breathing freer for thy sake today.

(From the poem "Christian Martyr," by John Greenleaf Whittier)

Note1691 Wikipedia entry on the accusation and trial of Mary Easty:

Like her sister Rebecca Nurse, Eastey was a pious and respected member of Salem, and her accusation came as a surprise. During the examination on April 22, 1692, when Eastey clasped her hands together, Mercy Lewis, one of the afflicted, imitated the gesture and claimed to be unable to release her hands until Eastey released her own. Again, when Eastey inclined her head, the afflicted girls accused her of trying to break their necks. Mercy claimed that Eastey's specter had climbed into her bed and laid her hand upon her breasts. When asked by magistrates John Hathorne and Jonathan Corwin how far she had complied with Satan, she replied, "Sir, I never complyed but prayed against him all my dayes, I have no complyance with Satan, in this ... I am clear of this sin."

For reasons unknown, Eastey was released from prison on May 18 after two months. However, on May 20, Mercy Lewis claimed that Eastey's specter was afflicting her, a claim which other girls supported. A second warrant was issued that night for Eastey's arrest. She was taken from her bed and returned to the prison; Lewis ceased her fits after Eastey was chained. Eastey was tried and condemned to death on September 9.

Robert Calef, in More Wonders of the Invisible World, described Eastey's parting words to her family "as serious, religious, distinct, and affectionate as could be expressed, drawing tears from the eyes of almost all present." She was hanged on September 22, along with Martha Corey, Ann Pudeator, Alice Parker, Mary Parker, Wilmot Redd, Margaret Scott, and Samuel Wardwell. On the gallows she prayed for an end to the witch hunt. Of her two sisters likewise charged with witchcraft, Rebecca Nurse was eventually hanged, but Sarah Cloyce was not.

In November, after Eastey had been put to death, Mary Herrick gave testimony about Eastey. Herrick testified that she was visited by Eastey who told her she had been put to death wrongfully and was innocent of witchcraft, and that she had come to vindicate her cause. Eastey's family was compensated with 20 pounds from the government in 1711 for her wrongful execution. Her husband Isaac lived until June 11, 1712.

Note* Salem, Massachusetts; Wikipedia article about the accusation that Sarah Cloyce was practicing witchcraft:

She was accused of witchcraft the day after she had defended her sister Rebecca against the same charge. A few days later she was named in warrants and arrested, and was transferred to Boston prison. She petitioned the court for an opportunity to present evidence which supported her innocence, and to exclude spectral evidence (which is testimony that the spirit of someone did something). Charges against her were dismissed on 3 January 1693. Her husband paid the fees demanded by the prison and she was released.

Subsequently, she and her husband relocated, first to Marlborough, and later to Sudbury.
