According to the 1880 census, my greatgrandmother Lena O. Hanson was
apparently a sister-in-law to Ole Brevig and was living with the Brevig
family at that time. Her marriage to my greatgrandfather Martin N. Olson in
1882 was at the Brevig residence.
I am hoping that someone with connections to Ole Brevig can help me learn
more about Lena's parents.
My greatgrandparents Martin N. Olson and Lena O. Hanson were married on 17
May 1882 in Stevens County, Minnesota. Witnesses at the wedding were Albert
Olson (Martin's older brother most likely) and Julie Grimstad.
Martin and Lena then moved to Grant County (Pelican Lake Township I believe)
where two sons were born: Oscar and Clarence. After Clarence was born in
1885, Lena died. I believe that she is buried in or near Ashby, MN.
Following her death, Martin moved to North Dakota and remarried, and had a
daughter Alma by his second wife.
I believe that Lena was born in Norway, but I have no additional information
on her. Any help that could be provided in learning more about my
greatgrandmother would be most appreciated.
