The 1875 Minnesota state census is only state record showing Nels Johnson in this county.

Were all of the above possibly related ? The Oleson's were in Hart, Winona Co 1870 - 1880 census. They had three more sons Hans 1862, Andrew 1864 and Ole 1869. Then they all disappear from Winona County.

Minnesota has an 1857 territorial census and do not find them listed.

I find that Augusta Johnson was the only one in this county during census dates; With that said an Augusta Johnson married Ole O Moon 22 Dec 1882 in Fremont. However the 1885 census shows Ole, 22 yr old Augusta and 2 yr old son Oscar living with a Martha Johnson, Rachael Johnson from Norway and an Eddie Johnson b. WI 1867 living in Fremont.

Find only a handfull of "Gunild Serene's" born Norway 1829-1830. My opinion is "Gunnel" and Nels married in Norway abt 1855 then left shortly after and headed to the US.
