CARL EDWARD HAUGAN

 

Carl Edward Haugan was a pioneer homesteader in the province of Saskatchewan. He was born on November 26, 1883 in Leaf Lake Township, Otter Tail County, Minnesota, where he was both baptized and confirmed at the Norderhaug Norwegian Lutheran Church. Carl Haugan was the third child born to Anders Torsen Haugan and Boletta Haugan and the first child born to his parents following their immigration from Sigdal, Norway in 1882.

Carl Haugan was raised on the family farm in Otter Tail County, Minnesota and worked as a farm laborer in this youth.  Together with his brothers and cousins, Carl was part of a family of Minnesotans who operated farms in Saskatchewan.

Carl Haugan was granted a homestead (SE Section 34, Township 37, Range 13, Meridian W2) near Rose Valley, Saskatchewan. Close by was the property of his brother Theodore Haugan (SE Section 3, Township 38, Range 13, Meridian W2). Directly adjacent to Carl Haugan’s land grant was the homestead of his cousin Carl Edward Nyhus (SW 34 Township 37, Range 13, Meridian W2).

Rose Valley is a small village located in central Saskatchewan north east of the provincial capital of Regina. It can be reached by way of Saskatchewan Provincial Highway 35, a primary highway which runs north from Trans-Canada Highway, Yellowhead Route 16, passing through Wadena, Fosston and Rose Valley.

On January 30, 1911, in the District Court of the Judicial District of Saskatoon, Carl became a naturalized citizen of the Dominion of Canada. Carl returned to the state of Minnesota in 1912 and on New Year’s Eve of that year, married Inga Christine Uggen in a ceremony held in the parlor of her father’s home.

Carl would re-establish his citizenship in the United States on September 30, 1919 before the Clerk of the Court of Bottineau County, North Dakota. Carl and Inga operated a farm and raised their family in North Dakota. Inga died during 1952. Carl died during 1956. They were both listed among the pioneers in “The People of Bottineau County”, which was published for the 100th anniversary of Bottineau County in 1986.
