Hi,Ole Nelson's birth name was Ole Braaten. His dad was Nels Olson Braaten and his mom was Ingeborg Claussen. Ole was an only child from Nels' 2nd marriage. His mom and unborn brother Halvor died in a farm accident.Ole was only 1 at the time, so the 3rd wife raised him. He had 2 older brothers from the 1st marriage, Ole and Kolbjorn. He changed his last name to Nelson (Nels son) because the 2 of them were on the same mail route,and got each others mail.
Nels and the 3rd wife, Anna had 9 children together.
Ole was married to Jorand Petersdatter Pladson, and they had 12 kids. Their daughter was my grandma Christine, my mom's mother. The other kids were,Ada(Ida),Henry,Peder,Mina,
Albert,Oscar,Gida,Olvin and Mabel.
I have a lot of info to share. Let me know.
