I found him on www.findagrave.com
but didn't find anything about him in FamilySearch. He's buried in Grove Lake Church Cemetery, Pelican Rapids, Otter Coounty, MN. The FAG says that the Otter Tail County Historical Society, www.o tchs.org has additional info on their web site & in their research library.
I'd contact the Norman County Recorder's office who has births starting in 1881. However I don't think they are consistent.
The Minnesota Office Vital Records death records start in 1900. Successful Searching!
