Albert CORDELL was my gg grandfather, and a Civil War vet (Union).

The Buchanan County (Iowa) history shows him living in MN and this is the first sign I've had. Any help is greatly appreciated.

The 1910 Census shows the family as renters and farming in Princeton Township. The 1920 and 1930 Census shows the family in Bogus Brook Township , also renting and farming.

Harvey Kenneth Hurley (1908-1969)

NELSON - I am trying to complete information on this NELSON family from Mille Lacs County. The wife, Jennie, is a distant relative to me. What is known is given below. I don't have (the exact or the) death date for Emil or the son, Harry, nor do I have the cemetery where all three were presumably buried. As you can see from the info below, he was Swedish and she was Norwegian. There is the possibility that Jennie's mother and/or grandmother may have been living with them at the time of death, Mother was Ingeborg REINE (b. Nov 1838, d. 1919). Grandmother was Anna MORKVE (b. Nov 1808, d. probably between 1901 and 1905, as she doesn't show on the 1905 census). Emil NELSON was born in 1868 in SWEDEN. He appeared on the census in 1905 in Bogus Brook Twp, Mille Lacs Co, MN. He died in Milaca, MN. He was a lumberjack. He was married to Jennie (Henrietta) Amalie REINE (daughter of Hans Andreas Olson (Hognfjord) REINE and Ingeborg Knutsdtr. MORKVE) in 1902. Jennie (Henrietta) Amalie REINE was born on March 2, 1873 in Vesterålen, Nwy. She immigrated in 1875. She appeared on the census in 1885 in Fertile Twp, Worth Co, IA. She was confirmed in 1888 in Fertile Luth Ch, Worth Co, IA. She died on September 1, 1938 in Milaca, MN. Cancer She was buried in Milaca, MN. (from notes by Marcella Nordseth) Jennie Reane was born in Norway March 2, 1873, and came to the US in 1875. In 1900, she moved to Bock (near Milaca, MN) from Worth County, Iowa. She married Emil Nelson in 1902, and lived on a farm until 1929, when they moved to Milaca. She had a son Harry, who died as a child. She died 9-1-1938 of cancer. In the 1905 census, it states that Emil had lived in the town of Bogus Brook, Mille Lacs county for 7 years, Jenny for 4 years, and Harry for 2 years. Emil is listed as a lumber man and Jenny as a housewife. (R.135, p131b, L5,6,7) (from remembrances by Dennis Tweed, July 14, 1991) Jennie was very gullible. She would believe anything she was told, and people enjoyed putting her on. At the time she may have been termed "simple". Her son, Harry, went to school in Milaca with cousin, Gilman Tweed, who was about the same age. Emil NELSON and Jennie (Henrietta) Amalie REINE had the following child: Harry E. NELSON was born in 1902 in MN. He appeared on the census in 1905 in Bogus Brook Twp, Mille Lacs Co, MN. He died about 1911. Appendicitis. Dick Flisrand 01-25-2001.

was married to Christina Emilia born 1877 in Fernebo, Värmland, Sweden. They had the following children, Esther Emilia b 1900, Ruben William b 1904, Roy Edward b 1906,
Nils Clarence b 1908, John Rudolf b 1914. They also had two older sons Egner H Nelson, he is married in 1920 Census, I can't make out his German wife’s name though, and
they lived in Bogus Brook too. And Ernest Nelson, he lives in Borgholm, Mille Lacs Co. he is married to Alma and they have a daughter Irene not one year yet. I would be
very grateful if someone recognizes these people. Thanks for any information you might have. Inga-Lill Johansson Karlskoga 06-29-2000 (Updated 06-20-2005).

OLSON - See Englund / Olson.
OLSON - I am searching for information about my Great grandparents. According to my father's uncles, the Knute Bergetangen OLSON family moved to Atwater, Minnesota in the spring of 1867 and lived there till the spring of 1876 when they moved on to Lac Qui Parle County, Minnesota. When they sold their property , it was sold to the proposed Atwater Townsite, and I believe they lived on or very near to the Union Cemetery which I think is north of town. The town hoped to expand to this point eventually. There is a site in the northeast corner of the cemetery where some buildings once stood. I am a great grandson, and would like information about this. I researched records this past summer at Willmar, but went through the deeds, which may have been of the quit claim variety. Any information I can receive would be of great value to me and much appreciated. My address is at the following place: Norman Shelsta 566 Park Avenue, in Ortonville, Minnesota 56278 My phone number is 1-320-839-3592 Thank you very much for anything in advance! 12-28-2001.

REDDICK - Brothers Erastus and Oliver Reddick settled in Mille Lacs County about 1880 . Eventually they purchased land in (i) township 47N, range 27W, (ii) township 45N, range 26W, and (iii) township 46N, range 26W, always on section 22. It is said that there is a Reddick Creek in the area and there is a 'Milo' township but it's location is unknown and there is no evidence that that has anything to do with their brother Milo. Two sisters took up a land claim there in the 1880's but within a short time moved to Aitken and operated a dress shop. Erastus and Oliver, both bachelors, later retired in Aitken and are buried there. These Reddicks were born in Marlborough township, Carleton county, Ontario, the children of James Reddick who was born in County Derry, Ireland. Over time, eight of his family of fourteen children lived in, or near, Aitken. As well, their mother, Matilda (Goldie) Reddick, left Ontario after James' death, died in Aitken in 1911 and is buried there with Erastus and Oliver in Lakeview Cemetery. James is buried at North Gower township, adjacent to Marlborough township. Lee Bartley 12-21-2000.
