The fun thing about working in Juneau Co is that there is lots of information on folks (except the one we are looking for), however this one really surprised us. We Googled for Martin Theodor Larson.
The following link came up:
Select Juneau county bygdebok.
Don’t panic, while the front page is in Norwegian, the family pages are in English. This person has spent a huge amount of time researching Norwegian families that came to Juneau Co.
The site was a little hard for us to get around in so we copied some of the information.
