THE FAMILY OF ASLE PEDERSON LUNDE & GUNHILD FREDERICKSDATTER:

Asle Lunde

 

Gunhild Lunde & 4 childrenAsle Pederson Lunde was born April 08, 1846 in Norway. He came to America with his parents when he was 4 years old. This photo of Asle was taken about 1872 when he was 26 years old. Asle married Gunhild Fredericksdatter May 15, 1883 in Freeborn Co., MN and they had 4 children. Asle & Gunhild were second cousins - their grandmothers Kari & Barbro Hval were sisters. On March 25, 1891, Peder Lunde sold the part of his land with his original homestead to Asle for $1. On September 2, 1891, Peder & Elsie made a legal contract with their sons Asle & Ole that included sale of some of their land in Hayward to each son, and also stipulated that Asle & Ole care for Peder & Else in their old age. Peder Lunde died soon after on September 29, 1891, and his son Asle died the next year. Asle died on November 5, 1892 in Hayward, Freeborn Co., MN from injuries received when he was kicked by a horse. At the time of his death, his children were age 1 to 8. The photo of Gunhild and the children was probably taken about 1895. Children oldest to youngest were Elsie, Florence, Palma & Alfred. Gunhild Fredericksdatter Oimoen Lunde died on October 22, 1896 in Hayward, Freeborn Co., MN. Asle & Gunhild are both buried in the Hayward Cemetery, Hayward, Freeborn, Minnesota. Gunhild died without a will, and on July 1, 1922 the Lunde land in Hayward (which Gunhild inherited when Asle died), was given by the courts in equal parts to all of the four children. On July 24, 1922, the three sisters sold it for "$1 and love and affection" to their younger brother Alfred, who by Norwegian custom would have been the legal heir as the oldest son.
