Notes for Theodore Olsen Viker
Theodore is probably English version of this son's name - not listed in Duane's Red Book, but Duane states Ole & Margit had 4 sons and then only lists 3 of them, so Theodore is probably 4th son. He is listed with the family on the 1870 census in Holt, Fillmore Township (13) and also in 1775 and 1880 censuses in Frankford, Mower Co., MN. Article on Ingeborg Viker Lunde (sister) written in 1919 lists him as deceased.1
