His son states in 1910 that he is still alive and living in Eau Claire, but he seems to just disappear...we cannot find a death record or grave for him anywhere in the areas he lived in Wisconsin and there is no record of a death in North Dakota...

Enclosed see one of Andrew's children's info from when he retired from the RR in MN, he states the address of Andrew and states he is living...

Andrew's wife Martha is buried int he same plot in Eau Claire with one of her daughters and her husband. No Andrew buried there.

I am not sure what or where Ole and Anders ( Andrew) ended up after North Dakota.

If any of this seem correct, please email me at

Thanking you in advance,
