My grate grandfathers brother Ole L Romslo was a county Comissioner in Walworth County in the period between 1881 and 1890.
Ole lived in the area that today are Mobridge, and his farm is today under Lake Oahe.
What type of duties were to be done by a County Commisioner in 1890?.
In some Norwegian sources there are written that he was a sheriff too, but the Sheriff Office in Mobridge can neither confirm or deny such statement. They do not have any records from those years.
Don't hesitate to reply if you have information.
