THE FAMILY OF OLE P. LUNDE & INGEBORG VIKER

Ole P. Lunde familyOle Pederson Lunde was the younger son of Peder & Else (Gravli) Lunde. He married Ingeborg Olsdatter Viker on May 15, 1881 in Grand Meadow, Mower Co., MN, and they had 6 children. The family is listed on the 1895 census of Hayward, Freeborn, Minnesota. The family moved from Hayward to Moscow, Minnesota sometime between 1895-1900, and they are listed on the 1900, 1905, 1910, & 1920 censuses of Moscow Twp, Freeborn Co., MN. This family photo was taken about 1919. The photo was taken because Cornelia had traveled to Minnesota from Montana for Elwood's birth and Pete was home from the logging camps in Canada so Ole wanted a studio photo taken. Ole and Ingeborg retired from farming in 1920, and went to Hayward to live. Their son Rudolph took over the Moscow farm. Son Peter had bought his own farm down the road. Pete's son, Olaf, said that for about 5 minutes their daughter Margaret owned the Moscow farm, then she signed papers (quit claim?) as the elder, and it went to Rudolph. Margaret lived in Hayward with her parents after they moved to Hayward. They are listed on the 1930 census of Hayward, Freeborn Co., MN. Ole P. Lunde died on April 18, 1933. Ingeborg is listed with her daughter Margaret and two female boarders on the 1940 census of Hayward, Freeborn, Minnesota. Ingeborg died on June 18, 1948, both in Hayward, Freeborn Co., Minnesota. Ole & Ingeborg are both buried in the Hayward Cemetery, Hayward, Freeborn Co., Minnesota.

The children of Ole P. Lunde & Ingeborg Viker:

2. Margaret Lunde

Margaret Emilia Lunde was born September 21, 1883 in Thief River Falls, Minnesota. She is the only child of Ole & Ingeborg Lunde who was not born in Hayward, Freeborn Co., MN, and they lived in Freeborn County all of their married life. I believe that Margaret was born in Theif River because Ingeborg Lunde traveled up to northern Minnesota to attend the wedding of her sister Caroline Viker to O. M. Omlie on August 27, 1883 in Fargo, ND; it is my guess that she then stayed with her parents who were living near Thief River Falls until Margaret was born before traveling home again. She is listed as Margith, age 11, with her parents on the 1895 census of Hayward, Freeborn, Minnesota. The family moved from Hayward to Moscow, Minnesota sometime between 1895-1900, and Margaret is listed with her parents on the 1900, 1905, & 1910 censuses of Moscow, Freeborn Co., MN. Margaret never married. I have not found her on the 1920 census at this time, but her parents retired from farming that year and moved into Hayward, Freeborn Co., MN. Margaret is listed with them on the 1930 census Hayward Village, Freeborn Co., MN. Her father Ole died in 1933, and Margaret is listed at age 56 with her mother and two female boarders on the 1940 census of Hayward, Freeborn, Minnesota. Margaret was an excellent seamstress and made many of her sisters and cousins dresses. Margaret Lunde died on May 7, 1982 in Freeborn Co., Minnesota.

5. Cornelia Lunde Anna Cornelia Lunde was born March 30, 1892 in Hayward, Freeborn Co., MN. She is listed with her parents on the 1900, 1905, & 1910 censuses of Moscow, Freeborn Co., MN. Cornelia visited friend Anna Bagley Curtis in Montana in 1916, and she met Percy Brees, who had moved there from Todd Co., Minnesota. Cornelia married Percy Brees on July 12, 1917 in Great Falls, Montana and they had 6 children. In 1920 the family should be in Teton or Choteau County, Montana on their homestead with husband Percy Brees, son Elwood (1) and pregnant with Phyllis, born July 1920. I haven't found them on the census yet, but the birth certificate of daughter Phyllis, born July 20, lists her post office as Breeston, MT. (The Breeston Post office was their house on the homestead). As the postmasters took the census records, maybe that is why they are not included on the census records that year. They moved from the homesead into Great Falls, MT, and are listed on the 1930 census of Great Falls, Cascade Co., MT. Percy died unexpectedly of a heart attack on June 14, 1951 in Great Falls. Cornelia died on November 2, 1980 in Denver, CO. Percy & Cornelia are both buried in the New Highland Cemetery, Great Falls, Cascade Co., Montana.

6. Atlanta LundeAtlanta Nickolina Lunde was born July 1895 in Hayward, Freeborn Co., MN. She is listed with her parents on the 1900, 1905, & 1910 censuses of Moscow, Freeborn Co., MN. I am guessing this photo is HS graduation in 1914. She is listed with her brother Rudolph's family on the 1920 census of Moscow Township, Freeborn Co., MN. About that time Atlanta went to visit her sister Cornelia, who had moved to Montana. Atlanta married Calmer Moe on Sept. 14, 1921, probably in Great Falls, Cascade Co., MT. Calmer was the son of Gilbert Fredericksen Moe & Lena. Calmer & Atlanta were third cousins - their g-grandmothers Barbro & Kari Hval were siblings. Also Calmer's father Gilbert and Atlanta's Aunt Gunhild (wife of Asle Lunde) were siblings. Calmer & Atlanta had one son, Richard. Atlanta was killed in a train-car accident on September 12, 1923. Calmer, Atlanta & Richard had made a trip to visit the family in Minnesota, and Atlanta was killed on the return trip home to Montana when their car was hit by a train. The train came around a corner, and by witness accounts it did not blow it's whistle to give warning that it was coming. Atlanta was caught on the "cowcatcher" of the train long enough to throw baby Richard up onto the train platform before she went under the train. Atlanta's body was put on the train and returned to Minnesota for burial. Atlanta's sister Margaret Lunde returned to Montana with Calmer for awhile and cared for Richard, but after a time, Margaret & Richard returned to Minnesota, and he lived there until he was 5 years old. At that time Calmer remarried and had two more daughters, and Richard went to live with them in Montana. He returned to Minnesota for visits, and was killed there at age 18 in a car accident, not far from the cemetery where his mother is buried.

THE 10 COUSINS: The children of Asle Pedersen Lunde and Ole Pedersen Lunde

"The 10 cousins"

The children on Asle and Ole Lunde were raised pretty much together. Asle was killed October 1891(age 46) when kicked by a horse. His wife Gunhild died 5 years later in 1896 - at the time of her death their 4 children ranged in age from 5 to 12 years old. These 4 children stayed in their home with their grandmother, Else Gravli Lunde, and spent summers, most holidays and lots of time with Ole & Ingeborg Lunde's 6 children, and in the family they were referred to as "The 10 cousins".Click on the link for a printable photo.
