About Ole Anderson Oien

Ole came to Wisconsin June 24, 1866, after a difficult journey of nine weeks, seven weeks at sea. They came to John Jonasson at McFarland, Wisc. After living with the Jonasson's for a time, they bought a small house. Ole took whatever work he could get - mostly as a woodsman and as a railroader. Ole Thompson - a son in law, in the 1928 history of Norwegians in Minnahaha County, South Dakota, wrote that the "children had to go out and earn their bread as soon as they were able, as when they came they were bare of earthly goods but had courage and good health."
