Here is some information from the FamilySearch website:

bride's father:Ole Christensen
chr. 26 Dec 1812 Rakkestad
b. 7 Sept 1810 Rakkestad

The family is listed on the 1865 Census in Rakkestad, widow Oleana with son Edvard and they are living on the farm Moseløkka in Rakkestad, along with dau. Lovise Marie who is married to Andreas Amundsen.
I could not find them in the emigration records for Oslo and the records for Fredrikstad start after Edvard left.
