His father was Ivar Ivarsson Stokdal (1774-1819). Grandfather was Ivar Ivarsson (1753-1789?) born Seglem but farmed Stokdal. Great grandfather was Ivar Ivarsson (1723-1757) born Halsne but farmed Seglem.I believe Halsne is located in nearby Finnøy.
The name line also continued, Jørgen had at least two older brothers who were christened as Ivar and the brother who later took over that section of Stokdal also named his first son Ivar.
