7 Februrary 1777 she married Iver Jacobsen Kurås. This marriage was one of a pair between siblings. Iver's sister Maritte married Anne Margrethe's brother Eric. This marriage is one of four marriages that I know of between the two families from the Bakken and Kuråsen farms. Iver and Anne Margrete lived at the Nyplassen (Nyplasshaugen) farm after being married.

Iver and Anne Margrete had 7 children, all born at the Nyplassen farm:

  • 1778 - 1840 Jacob Iversen Jacobslien (Teslie)
  • 1781 - ???? Michel Iversen
  • 1784 - 1854 Ole Iversen
  • 1787 - 1791 John Iversen
  • 1791 - ???? Iver Iversen
  • 1793 - ???? Maritte Iversdatter
  • 1798 - ???? Ingebor Iversdatter

In the 1801 census Anne Margrete and her husband Iver along with 5 of their 6 (living) children were living at the Nyplass farm. Their oldest son Jacob had left and was in Strinda at this census

Sometime shortly after the 1801 census Iver and Anne Margrete took over the Bakken farm from her parents.

Anne Margrete's husband died in 1810. It is unclear where she lived after this but I suspect on the Bakken farm as it was her second oldest son Michel (Mikkel) who took over the Bakken farm after his father passed away. Anne Margrete died 5 June 1834. It is interesting to note that also in 1834 that part of the main Bakken farm (gnr. 25, bnr. 1) was divided out by Michel Iversen to his two oldest sons. The burial record appears to me to say she died at Nyplassen however so it is just unclear to me exactly how things were when she died. She was buried 15 June 1834 at Røros.
