Notes for Margaret Lunde

The Family of Ole Pederson Lunde & Ingeborg Olsdatter Viker

Ashle Skaar told me Margaret was born Sept. 1883 in Thief River (Atlanta Dye) Note from Kari: Her parents Ole and Ingeborg Viker were probably there for the wedding of Ingeborg's sister Caroline in August 18813, and then stayed with Ingeborg's parents for the birth. Caroline was married in Fargo, ND - Ole N. and Margit Viker were living up near Thief River Falls, MN at the time. I did find a land patent in Ole P. Lunde's name from that area, but I haven't found any evidence that they lived up there. I think Ole P. Lunde may have gotten the land patent for his father-in-law, Ole Nilson Viker.

Mom (Cornelia Lunde) told me that Aunt Margaret had a diamond ring from a man (don't know his name), but he was an engineer (she thinks) and went on a job and didn't return. I'll have to ask some Minn. relatives.

1920 census - ???

In 1920, when Ole and Ingeborg Lunde retired from farming, and went to Hayward to live, Rudolph and Hattie Lunde took over the Moscow farm. Peter and Emma Lunde bought their own farm down the road. Their son, Olaf, said that for about 5 minutes Margaret owned the Moscow farm, then she signed papers (quit claim?) as the elder, and it went to Rudolph. I'm assuming that Margaret lived in Hayward with her folks, but that is something else I have to check. After Ole Lunde died, she did live in Hayward with Ingeborg (her mom). ( I saw both of them there in 1934 when I was 9 yrs old, and again in 1942 when a trip to Minn. was my graduation gift after high school. My sister, Virginia and I went back on the train, and visited all my Mom's relatives.)
