      Priests: At the original Sønderho Church:

      Ove Thisen Foss (1746-1792)

      After Rafn's death, the office returned to the Foss family, when the successor became Jens Lauridsen Foss's son, Ove Thisen Foss.
      Ove was born in Sønderho on 13 June 1737, in the middle of his father's tenure.
      He graduated from the academy in 1758 and became an assistant and successor in Sønderho in 1760. When Rafn died on 1 June 1764, Ove Foss therefore immediately took over the office as parish priest.

      He was married to Sophie Friis, who was the daughter of the priest in Nordby, Niels Friis.

      Ove Foss was a priest in Sønderho for 28 years, and it was during his tenure that the new church was built. Therefore, his initials also hang on the east gable: OF followed by the year 1782, which was the year of inauguration.
      He managed to be a priest in the new church for 9 years before he died on October 25, 1791.

      It is interesting and unusual that all the priests in Sønderho have been related to each other for 250 years. Only the penultimate, Poul Rafn came from outside. And he was even just a weak parenthesis in history until Foss' son was old enough to continue the lineage.
