Peder Aslesen LundePeder Aslesen Lunde was born on July 13, 1820 in Aadalen, Buskerud, Norway. Peder married Else Olsdatter Gravli on Feb 8, 1845 in the Viker Church, Aadalen, Buskerud, Norway. Peder, Else, and their 4 year old son Asle immigrated to America in 1850. According to family stories, Peder & Else landed at Quebec, Canada and went by canal boat through the Great Lakes to Milwaukee Wisconsin. I have found them on a passenger list for the ship Christiane, which landed in New York on July 1850. Several other people from Aadalen immigrated about that same time, and they traveled from Drammen to New York and then went by canal boat to Buffalo New York and then went from there by ship through the Great Lakes to Milwaukee. I think this is probably the way that Peder & Else went also as it seems unreasonable that the ship would have continued up to Quebec from New York, or that Peder & Else would have chosen to stay on the ship and depart at Quebec if their destination was Wisconsin. Family story does state that they went by canal boat through the Great Lakes to Milwaukee Wisconsin. From there they walked to Rock Prairie, Dane Co., Wisconsin. Peder Lunde worked for a time in a lead mine at Mineral Point, and later as a clerk in Peddler's Creek, Wisconsin in 1852. They then emigrated to Iowa, and they are on the 1856 state census of Osage Twp., Mitchell Co., IA. Peder & Else settled in Sec. 8 Hayward, Freeborn County, MN in July 1856 - they were one of the two first permanent settlers to do so (the other was Endre Gulbrandson, a relative of Peder's). Endre Gulbrandson's wife was Marit Gravle, Else's first cousin who had been raised in her family. The family is on th 1860, 1870 & 1880 censuses of Hayward, Freeborn Co., MN. The first log school house in Hayward was built on Peder's farm. Peder Aslesen Lunde died on October 1891 in Hayward. Else is listed on the 1900 census, living with her son Asle's 4 children, who had been orphaned when their father died in 1892 & their mother died in 1896. Else is listed on the 1905 state census of Moscow Township, Freeborn Co., MN living with her son Ole P. Lunde & his family. Else Olsdatter Gravli Lunde died in 1908 in Freeborn Co., MN. Ole & Else are buried in the Hayward Lutheran church Cemetery, Hayward, Freeborn Co., MN.
