Sometime between 1801 and 1803 she moved to Strinda (Trondheim). Most likely at the same time as her parents and her brother Ole who also moved there and purchased the Tesli farm.

July 1, 1803 she was married to her first cousin Jacob Iversen.

Her husband purchased part of the Tesli Lower farm from her brother Ole Olsen Tesli. This new farm was known as the Jacobsli farm. It is unknown when exactly a house was built on the Jacobsli farm, so for a while anyway Ingeborg and Jacob lived at the Lower Tesli farmhouse.

Her first child, Iver Jacobsen was born in December of 1803 at the Tesli farm.

Her second son, Ole was born in March 1806 ( source - #12 ).

Ingeborg died in April of 1807 at the age of 28, at the Jacobsli farm. She was buried 13 April 1807 at Lade Church in Strinda.
