That Albert Vik was a good suggestion. To check out this family I looked for them in the 1900 Census. The family (as Vig) is still in the same location, and Mabel Vig is still there, so it does not fit since my Mabel Vik is with the Brevig family in 1900(and born in 1893).
I also saw the Andreas Vik in Pope Co. (1895), but I do not see any way to connect him to Brevigs.
Yes, it is a tough one. I contacted the Otter Tail Co. Historical Society several years ago when doing my maternal ancestors who lived near Pelican Rapids, and I received good help, so I will see what they can find.
