March 25, 1891 - Peder & Else Lunde sold to their son Asle Lunde for $1 the following land: The East half of the Northeast corner of Section 18 in Township 102 (Hayward). This land was part of Peder's original land in Hayward. Warranty Deed, filed at the Freeborn County Courthouse on July 20, 1914.

September 2, 1891 - Peder & Else Lunde sold to Asle Lunde for $1000 and an agreement to care in their old age. Land sold in this transaction was the East half of the Northeast corner of Section 18, the Southeast quarter of the Southeast quarter of Section 7, and the Southwest Quarter of the Southwest Quarter of Section 8 in Township 102 (Hayward). This land is the original land that Peder bought in Hayward. As Asle had already bought the land in Section 18 for $1 in March 1891, I'm not sure why it is included in this second land deed. Warranty Deed, filed at the Freeborn County Courthouse on September 5, 1891.

September 2, 1891 - Contract between Peder & Else Lunde and their older son Asle & wife Gunhild and also younger son Ole & wife Ingeborg. The contract was to sell Peder's land for $2000 ($1000 each from Asle and Ole) and also included an agreement that Asle and Ole would care for Peder & Else in their old age. Peder died on September 29, 1891 in Hayward, Freeborn Co., MN. Asle died the next year from being kicked in the head by a horse. Asle's wife Gunhild died in 1896. In 1900 Else was living with Asle & Gunhild's children in the house on Peder's original land, but she was living with Ole & Ingeborg in Moscow, MN by 1905 and they cared for her until her death in 1908.

September 29, 1891 - Peder Lunde died in Hayward, Freeborn Co., MN.

November 05, 1892 - Asle Lunde died from being kicked in the head by a horse. His land was inherited by his widow Gunhild Lunde. Gunhild died 4 years later in 1896 - at the time of her death their 4 children ranged in age from 5 to 12 years old. These 4 children stayed in their home with their grandmother, Else Gravli, and spent summers, most holidays and lots of time with Ole & Ingeborg Lunde's 6 children after the death of their parents, and were referred to as "The 10 cousins". Source, Marion Lunde, told to her by Alfred Lunde.
