I kept running across Anne/Anna's name doing research on my family. She had a homestead adjoining that of my great grandfather in Norway Lake Township, Ole Johannessen Rindahl, but lived in Arctander Township as far as I know. I once found a reference to her in one of the articles on NAHA's website, but can't locate it now. It was about one of the pastor-sons and mentioned her as "Mother Christoffersen" or "Mother Holter". I can't locate it now, but will keep searching. I've wandered far afield from my family in "researching" and the article I'm thinking of may have been found while looking up some of the early pastors in Norway Lake. Have a photo of Pastor Markhus, and Pastor Muus has a fascinating bio on St. Olaf College archives website - quite surprising.

The names written on the photographs were written by my mom not long before she died at age 82, and the names aren't all easy to read. There are two of "Esther", one a wedding and one "Esther and Hilda Roen", I believe. I've not been looking at this side of the fam tree for a while, so will get back into it and refresh my memory. There is a Lars Holter in the Norway Lake church data, here:

In the 1880 census, the Hande family is listed just above Anne's family. Have a photo of one them - Olaf - as a young man, with another unidentified young man. They are all scanned so it will be easy to email to anyone interested.

There is a bit about Thea Holter, here:

I visited the family farm as a child, so Norway Lake and some of the families are very familiar to me. Thanks for your help.
