"This is very welcome information. I wonder why he wrote 1878 as the birth year on his WWI draft card. Does anyone know the name of the brother-in-law mentioned in the article? That information might help in tracking down his immigration record. "

"This is so good to hear. The 1875 v.s. 1878 date would be good to clear up. When you go to the MN Historical Society, could you keep your eyes open for anything about Willie's parents? I'd like to know if Willie came here alone or with his…"

"The same person who  posted his picture on Ancestry.com lists his birth as 1838 in Norway and a death year as 1888. On July 14, 1891 Edward's widow Anna was grated ownership of their homestead, Township 160 N, Range 45 W, Section…"

"I believe Anna's second husband was Charles Gustafson b. 1862 Sweden with whom she had two more children, Annie and Helga. Is also seems she applied for and was granted ownership of the homestead she had with Edward after his death. She was…"
