11 The original "Bakken" farm site was in Kvikne, Oppland, Norway. Andreas Olsen Harboe Berg (Bakken) bought and owned the farm in 1835. Andreas was "sort of a doctor" and healer and born in 1803. Prior to Andreas, there are indications of people on the "Bakken farm dating back to 1722. Ola Arnesen Bakken and Reidar Bakken owned the farm in 1722. Ola Arnesen Bakken lived there in 1750 with his wife Ingrid Stenersdatter. They sold the farm in 1794 to Hans Hansen (Ola's nephew). Hans was married to Gjertrud Olsdatter. They had a son, Ola Hansen. Ola Hansen drown in a small lake called Slangen in Skabu.

Andreas Olsen Harboe Berg (Bakken) married Anne Olsdatter (Klevstad) in 1824. Klevstad is located in Kvam, Oppland, Norway. When King Oscar the first of Norway decided to garnish farm land in the 1860's making land owners virtual slaves, Andreas and Anna (both at age 64) emigrated to America in July, 1869 with their daughter, Karen Andreasdatter Bakken (33) and her husband Amund Mortensen (Massinglokken) (35) and their children, Mathias(8), Ane(4), and Amund(2) The Massinglokken name later became Lerbakken. They traveled from Christiana, Norway to New York via Glasgow, Scotland. The ship was the SS Columbia, built in 1866. The description of the ship reads: Clipper stem, one funnel, three masts (ship-rigged for sail), iron construction, single screw and a speed of 10 knots. There were accommodations for 80 cabins and 540 3rd class passengers. After arriving in America, they first settled near LaCrosse, in Washington Township, Wisconsin. The 1870 census shows their location as Washington Township, LaCrosse County, Wisconsin. Bohemia (the post-office for Washington Township), was also just a couple of miles from Timber Coulee, Wisconsin where Andreas' grandson, Ole Olsen the Elder Bakken would start raising his family (about 13 years later). In about 1871, hearing of wide open fields of land for home steaders in Minnesota, Andreas and his daughter Karen and her husband Amund and their children crossed the Mississippi and re-located to Oscar Township, Ottertail County, Minnesota near Rothsay, Minnesota. It was during this re-location, that Mathias J. Amundsen (Lerbakken) at about age 10, accidently drowned in the Mississippi River. Andreas' wife Anne Olsdatter survived the ocean voyage and trip to Wisconsin, but did not survive her first year in America. The reason for her death is unknown.

12 Note Written by Elizabeth Olson. "I met some interesting and very nice people in the short while I lived near Carlisle. My folks lived on the Haldorson farm for a little over 3 years. I was in school in Fergus Falls a good part of that time and also did housework. But I was also home on that farm with my folks during the summer and one winter. We had nice neighbors - north of us a 1/2 miles two bachelors the Faldalen Brothers were. They were cozy men to visit. The one brother baked the most delicious white bread. They were jolly and fun. Then around us were farmers like Saterns, Fosse's, Nelsons, Laugens - but a 1/4 mile or so south of us lived the Andrew Bakken's. They loved music and singing. Andrew sang with a quartette for years and they were popular and requested to sing in many churches. Morris, too, loved to sing. I first met "Morrie" after he came home from Gillette Hospital in Mpls. where he took treatment for after affects of Polio (I understood). While he was in the hospital he was so lonesome and asked the young folks of the Hedemarken Church to write to him. A few of us did. We often got together somewhere to practice, or sing for fun. The quartette (my dad was one of the quartette) also Philip Fjestad and Bernard Lein, plus Andrew and my Dad, Severin Olson. One afternoon "Ma" Bakken called and said come over right away. So I went - and everyone was so excited and singing because Bakken's had just got a new piano!! So we sang and played till late and many evenings after that - many happy hours. My cousin from Sisseton, South Dakota came to visit us. Morrie was so sociable he called and took us to a lovely Park - north and east of Pelican. He was always so generous and loved company - so did Andrew, Ma, and Arthur. We got together at the Haldorson farm and played games and sang too. In those days we didn't have private lines on our phones. So if your "ring" came (maybe one short and 2 long or so) you would answer and you would also hear a soft klick here and another, etc. If it was an interesting conversation - sometimes Ma Bakken would join in. It was fun sometimes. And at the end of the day - when the sun was sinking lower in the west - there came a welcome inviting, home-coming call from "Ma" to Andrew to "come in now for supper and the evening rest." It put a smile on many a face that heard that call - you couldn't help but hear it and smile - hear it for several miles! When my brothers came to visit me from Washington D. C. we went to visit Art - the only one left of the family. He(Art) was in pain but very cheerful and happy to see friends.

Fergus Falls Weekly Journal, February 10, 1920 - Mr Andrew Bakken tells how Oscar Township go it's name. In looking over his father's (Mikkel Bakken's) old books, who was one of the first settlers, he found an account of the first township meeting. Some of the people wanted to name it after Ole Sletvold, the first settler, others suggested Christiania, after the capital of Norway. They finally decided to name it after King Oscar, at that time, the King of Norway and Sweden.

14 11 Apr 1987: While on a business trip to Norway, I drove by the farm of Vevla and Holmestad and then by the farm of Lovbakke. I noticed people standing outside and so stopped and talked to them Bjorne and Marie Lund and daughter Bjorg.

Berget is a place on the Vevla farm. Nils Evensen Berget worked for a man named Jon Ilseng. Jon had a son named Simen who had three sons: Jon, Even, and Kunst. Jon had a son named Simen who owned the farm when I visited in 1987.
