Note from Kari - on same page in household # 121 is Hans Wiger (Viker), age 79, born June 1820, widowed, living with his son Nils & wife Ingeborg. Hans is brother to my g-grandfather Ole Nilson Viker. Ole & his family actually lived in Fillmore Co., MN for awhile - they had settled in Brown (later Watonwan) Co. in 1856 but were scared off in 1862 by rumors of a coming Indian massacre (which actually happened several months later) and they left their land and fled to Fillmore Co. because they had relatives there. They lived there 10 years from 1862 to 1872 and they are on the 1865 state census in Holt Twp., Fillmore Co., MN. Ole's daughter Ingeborg later married Ole Pederson Lunde - who is the one who has Lunde connections to Kari Gulbrandson Lunde Housker.
