From Lorraine Haugstad;

Ole and Olava came from Norway and arrived at Halstad, MN in 1886 and walked from Halstad to Nielsville. The railroad just went as far as Halstad in the year 1886. Johan was seven and the twins were four years old. The twins had to be carried occassionally. Gertie remembert celebrating their fourth birthday aboard ship. They arrived 4 Jul 1886 at the Ole Hanson farm, stopping for a rest. Johan remembers Ole Hanson sent Anna his daughter down to the cellar for the milk supply so the guests could have a cool drink of milk-the best Johan had tasted since leaving Norway! Ole Hanson took the family to the Nels Skalet farm by horse and wagon. There was water all over when they arrived at the Nels Skalet farm. Ditches and roads had not been built as of this time.

Ole Skalet had been a soldier in the Standing Army of Norway. Ole J Skalet accompanied by Edward Tronnes & Mr Otterson of Nielsville, walked from Nielsville to Crookston in Nov 1890 to file homestead papers on the S W 1/4 Sec. 24 in Hubbard Twp. Polk County.
