BIOGRAPHIES:Hans CARLSON, Maple Grove Township, Barron County, WI
Hans CARLSON, a worthy and estimable farmer, owning 170 acres in Sections 7 and 18, East, Maple Grove Township, was born in Norway June 4, 1850, son of Carl and Mary (Eversdater) Helgerson, both of whom died in the old country. The subject of this sketch was reared in his native land and was nearly thirty years of age when he came to this country in 1879. He worked for a while in Green County, and then came to Barron County where he bought 65 acres in Dallas Township, where he did some clearing, fixed up the house, built a log barn, and farmed for eight years. In 1888 he bought his present place. Here he cleared about 90 acres, built a set of buildings and fences, and brought the place to a good stage of cultivation. He now, like his neighbors, carries on general farming and dairying. Mr. CARLSON was married April 5, 1887 to Mrs. Betsy Tollefson, widow of Knut Tollefson by whom she had one son, Torval, born May 22, 1884, now of Detroit, Mich., and this union has been blessed with seven children: Gena, who was born Nov. 11, 1888, is the wife of Louis Erickson, of Minneapolis. Mary, who was born April 8, 1891, is the wife of Eric Lundmark, of Minneapolis. Emma, who was born FEB. 18, 1894, is also in Minneapolis. Helga, born March 16, 1897; Carl, born May 28, 1899; Bennie, born March 9, 1902, and Victor, born Nov. 13, 1904, are all at home. The family faith is that of the Norwegian Lutheran Church.
