Anne Olsdatter was born on 14 Mar 1863 at the farm Stenberg østre in Løten, Norway and baptized on 11 Oct 1863. She was the fourth child and second daughter born to Ole Knudsen Bjørkholen and Johanne Pedersdatter Malerløkken. Anne would have been known as Anne Olsdatter Stenberg while living at Stenberg østre.

When Anne was about 10 years old (around 1873), her father lost the family farm Stenberg østre in a poker game. Anne went to live with her Aunt Pernille (her father's sister) on the farm Nybak (Gnr.228, Bnr.6) in Løten. Anne became known as Anne Olsdatter Nybak at this time.
