Ottine Olsdatter was born on 11 Dec 1869 at the farm Stenberg østre in Løten, Norway and baptized on 03 Apr 1870. She was the seventh and last child and fourth and youngest daughter born to Ole Knudsen Bjørkholen and Johanne Pedersdatter Malerløkken. Ottine would have been known as Ottine Olsdatter Stenberg while living at Stenberg østre.

When Ottine was about 3 years old (around 1873), her father lost the family farm Stenberg østre in a poker game. Her mother Johanne took the three youngest children (Else, Olaf, and Ottine) and moved to a small farm named Sagåbakengen in Løten. The 1875 census shows Ottine with her mother, sister, and brother living on Sagåbakengen: Johnanne (age ), Else (age 9), Olaf (age 8), and Ottine (age 6). Ottine would have been known as Ottine Olsdatter Sagåbakengen at this time.
