In total, Steinar had 13 children[7], 2 of whom were probably stillborn or died shortly after birth, according to a family sermon-book (Huspostille), in which the births of his last 8 children (starting with Dorte) are listed. In this book is written: "Gud give at Førnefnte mine Børn som nu lever kunde således skikke og forhandle sig udi denne Verden at vi maatte samles udi den Evige glæde. -- Steener Tordsen Fiaagesund."[5] This is a prayer that God would grant that his aforementioned children who have left this world would be gathered into eternal joy (loose translation, as I could not interpret it in its entirety).
