THE H.P. NYGAARD FAMILY

There was only one other home in what became the village of Halstad,
when Peder and Jonetta Nygaard moved into their new log house there in
1883. With them they had seven children, all born in the commune o
Klaebu near Trondheim, Norway: Lovise (Mrs. Elias Nelson), Jacob,
Ingeborg (Mrs. Jens Johnson), Hansine (Mrs. Carl Stordahl), Haldor, John
and Ole. It was a strenuous task for the mother to care for her children
on the long journey into the unknown from Trondheim to Hull, to
Liverpool, and on to the United States. None of them could speak
English. The youngest child Ole was only three years old. Their living
descendants, numbering close to 300, are now widely scattered, but at
first they all had their homes in the Halstad and Hendrum area. The old
log home in Halstad served as headquarters for a steady stream of
"nykomere" from Klaebu. It is located west of the Jerome Halstad home,
but has been so completely remodeled that no one would suspect that it
was originally a log cabin.
Haldor (H.P.) was the only one of the children who continued to live
permanently in Halstad. For a time he was a carpenter. Together with
Jens Grenstad and Ole Forseth he built the first Lutheran church
building in Halstad, and was later a trustee of the congregation. With
A.M. Hastad as partner he operated a meat market, which was for years a
lively community center. They also engaged in farming on both the
Minnesota and North Dakota side of the Red River. School, church, and
civic affairs were of primary concern to Haldor Nygaard. He was
secretary and member of the local school board continuously from 1897 to
1932. His life long service in the cause of temperance was outstanding.
He served Halstad as town marshall, recorder, treasurer, justice of the
peace, member of the village council, and two terms as mayor.
Cooperative movements and progressive views found in him an ardent
champion, as attested by his service as secretary of the Halstad
Telephone Co., secretary of the local creamery, vice president of
district 14 of the Land O'Lakes cooperatives, and chairman of the
Minnesota State Rural Credit Bureau. His name is listed in the 1941
edition of "Who's Who in Minnesota".
In 1896 Haldor married Hansine Grenstad, who also came from Klaeby. They
had seven children: Percival, who lives in Spokane, Washington, where he
taught high school and college mathematics for more that 40 years;
Elmer, who farmed at Halstad until his death in 1969; Julia Amundgaard,
now a widow living in Thief River Falls, MN; Belinda, who taught for
years in Crookston, was named Minnesota Teacher of the Year in 1955 and
died in an automobile accident in 1973; Oliver of Grand Forks, ND where
he had an eminent career as a contractor and builder; Herman of Tucson,
Arizona where he retired after many years as an engineer for Hughes
Electronic Company; and Ethel Christianson, a long time resident of
Wanatah, Indiana.
Mrs. H.P. Nygaard devoted her life mostly to church related affairs. For
more than 50 years she was a member of the Halstad Lutheran Church, and
was an energetic participant in its activities. Rarely did she miss a
Sunday service. The Ladies Aid Society of the church (Kvinde Foreningen)
elected her as its president eleven consecutive years. As a tribute to
her work in this field the Women's Federation of the Lutheran Church in
America elected her in 1939 to life membership.
H.P. Nygaard died in 1948, Mrs. Nygaard in 1951. They have little
tangible left in Halstad, although their former home still stands
proudly at the northwest corner of the village. The public school
building erected in 1905, when Haldor was on the school board, is now
surrounded by new educational structures. The old church building, which
they both knew so well, has long since been torn down, but has been
replaced by a splendid new one. Perhaps it is not too hard to believe
that the enthusiasm and good will now prevailing in the Halstad
community has its foundation in the work of these and other pioneers.

My great grandfathers sister Hansine Bergitte emigrated to Halstad, and married Haldor Nygard. They were both from Klæbu in Norway. They had 7 kids. Does anyone have any information about them?
