Wisconsin State Censuses, 1895 and 1905
about Andrew Mikelson
Name: Andrew Mikelson
Census Date: 1 Jun 1905
Residence County: Eau Claire
Residence State: Wisconsin
Locality: Eau Claire
Birth Location: Norway
Marital Status: Married
Gender: Male
Estimated birth year: abt 1846
Race: White
Relation: Head
Spouse's name: Martha E

Andrew Mikelson 59
Martha E Mikelson 54
Andrew E Mikelson 27
Samuel M Mikelson 24
Norman A Mikelson 19
Ella B Mikelson 16
Edwin O Mikelson 11

His son states in 1910 that he is still alive and living in Eau Claire, but he seems to just disappear...we cannot find a death record or grave for him anywhere in the areas he lived in Wisconsin and there is no record of a death in North Dakota...

Enclosed see one of Andrew's children's info from when he retired from the RR in MN, he states the address of Andrew and states he is living...

Andrew's wife Martha is buried int he same plot in Eau Claire with one of her daughters and her husband. No Andrew buried there.

I am not sure what or where Ole and Anders ( Andrew) ended up after North Dakota.

If any of this seem correct, please email me at sanjos333@gmail.com

Thanking you in advance,
Sandy

When did Martha die? Do you know if she was a widow then?

There is a grave here in St. Croix County- is it possible Martha is listed on both stones? No dates to help confirm
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=mi...;

The 1910 census says Martha is married, and 1920 says widowed, so possibly Andrew died between 1910 and 1920

Wow...in the 1920 Census, Martha is a widow... these are th enotes I have:





Per Brian Gaber:


Tha marriage record shows that his wife, Marthe Elisabeth Olsdatter, 22 1/2 years old, was born in
Avaldsnes parish.

The 1865 Census you list showing Marthe Elisabeth Olsdatter is correct. It shows the family living
at the farn "Vigshaaland" in Torvestad. This is the residence given on her marriage record.

The marriage record says Marthe was born in Avaldsnes, the census says she was born in
Torvestad......

The marriage record is correct:

Birth #11
Born 21 Jan 1850 in Avaldsnes
Baptized 27 Jan 1850
Martha Lisbet
Father: Ole Erichsen Lande
Mother: Mette Nilsdatter
