N2: Obituary for Anders Olsen from the Alexandria newspaper, p. 1, column 2. Anders Olsen Passes An old and respected citizen of Alexandria died Tuesday morning. In the death of Anders Olsen, which occurred at his home in this city on Tuesday morning, April 20, Alexandria loses one of its oldest and most widely known citizens. Mr. Olsen was born at Hedemarken, Norway on August 22, 1841. He grew to manhood in the old country, where he was married. He came to Wisconsin with his family in 1865, living one year at Racine and four years at Beloit. He came to Alexandria in 1870, and this city has since been his home. (He homesteaded in Ida township in 1870, but later traded his homestead to Julius Krohnfeldt for a team of black horses and a gold watch, in 1872, and moved into town.) On first coming to Alexandria, then a small frontier Village, he resided for a time in the old stockade. Soon after he built on the lots where he has since resided. (812 Hawthorne St.) Mr. Olsen was a man of unusual industry and of Sterling integrity. Honest to a fault, of a kindly nature, is familiar figure will be missed by his wide circle of friends. He had been in failing health for many months and his final summons had been expected for some time. Mr. Olsen leaves, besides his aged widow, nine children. They are Edwin A. Olsen, of Nelson; Mrs. John C Johnson, of Terrace, Minnesota; Cleve A. D. Olsen of this city; Mrs. E. K. Lower, of Spokane Washington; Mrs. Andrew Bradsteen, of Gardner, North Dakota; Mrs. Ole Hendrickson of Ather, North Dakota; Hjalmer Olsen, of this city; Ole Aaseth of Duluth; and Mrs. Albert Reiken, of Dell Rapids South Dakota. The funeral occurred this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock from the home on H street south, and at 3 o'clock from the Norwegian church, which Mr. Olson was one of the original trustees. Rev. AAA. Benson conducted the services, which were largely attended by friends and neighbors who came to pay a final tribute of respect to one whom they had known so long. The interment was at the Kincaid to cemetery. The pallbearers were Sen. Knute Nelson, Theo. Bordsen, Paul Foslien, Lewis Evens, M Fredrickson and Ole Nelson. Anders Olsen Aaseth, son of Ole Andersen Aaseth and Kari Daffindsdatter Tørudstad, born Aug. 22 1841, baptised 9 Sept. 1841 at Aaseth, Furnes parish, Hedemarken, Norway. Anders Olsen Aaseth married his first of 3 wives, Dorthea Ericksdatter Piksrud, in Norway and emigrated with her to Racine Wisconsin in 1865. Anders Americanized his name to Andrew Olsen. Anders and Dorthea had 7 children. Dorthea died after the birth of the seventh child, Martha Elida. Who was adopted within a week by H.H. and Henrietta Wilson. The announcement of this quick adoption was in the newspaper. Alexandria Post, Friday Dec. 5, 1879, page 4, Column 1. "Mr. and Mrs. H. H. wilson have brightened their home by adopting the beautiful infant child of Mrs. Oleson, who died last week. Last week during the funeral service of Mrs. Oleson, her mother, Mrs. Erickson, gently passed from earth away to meet her daughter in the Spirit Land." Children for Anders and Dorthea were: 1. Edward A. Olsen (Nelson, Minnesota) 2. Carrie Henryette Olsen Johnson (Chippewa Falls township, Pope County) 3. Anna Gustava Olsen (1871-1877) 4. Sarah Dorthea Olsen 5. Thora Amelia Olsen (1876-1876) 6. Cleve Alfred Daniel Olsen (lived in Alexandria, MN) 7. Martha Elida Olsen became Bessie Faye Wilson Gunderson Lower, and died in California. One child Dorothy, no grandchildren) Anders Olsen then married Mrs. Maren (Antonson) Anderson (b. Sept. 6, 1855 in Nesodden, Akershus, Norway - died June 14, 1888 in Alexandria, Minnesota). Maren was a widow with one daughter Alida when she married Anders Olsen. Anders and Maren Olsen then had 6 more children: 1. Mary Oline Olsen Bradsteen (b. October 5, 1880 - d. Feb. 9, 1960) 2. Anna Cora Olsen Hendrickson (b. Dec. 19, 1881 - d. ?) 3. Elmer Gotfred Olsen (b. Sept. 9, 1883 - d. May 10, 1940) 4. Ole Martin Olsen (b. January 28, 1885 - d. January 10, 1933) 5. Emma Louise Olsen Rieken (b. Oct. 4, 1886 - d. April 16, 1921) 6. Henry William Olsen (b. March 29, 1888 - d. August 10, 1888) Maren died June 14, 1888 at the age of 33, and again Anders was left with a two-month old infant, Henry, who died just a few months later. Anders waited four years before he married Andrienna (Andrine) Borstad of St. Paul in 1892. Andiron was born on Sept. 27, 1842 and died March 14, 1920. She had no children, but was a most loving mother and grandmother to all of Anders' large family. When Anders left Norway, there had been a dispute with his mother Kari Daffindsdatter. After the death of the father Ole Andersen Aaseth, the farm Aaseth was divided into two parts, Aaseth Nordre and Aaseth Sondre. The two brothers, Andreas and Anders would each have half - Anders getting Aaseth Nordre about 1863, although his mother retained the deed. The brother Andreas at Aaseth Sondre was accused and convicted of stealing some posts from a neighbor, the type used to construct a hay drying fence. He lost the legal right to own the farm. The mother Kari was then reluctant to sign the deed of Aaseth Nordre over to Anders. He then left the key in the lock of the new farmhouse they had just built, and walked away from the farm, leaving his mother to fend for herself in her old age. He left for America soon after. Eventually the farm passed out of the family, after some years. (this information from the Furnes bygdebok.)
