Hande, born in Balders. Came to Rice County 1869; to Norway Lake 1875. Married again with Rangdi Flaten, born in Balders. Came to Norway Lake, 1895.”

      As Thorsten Evenson, he and his family were living in Lake Johanna, Kerkhoven Twp, in the 1885 state census.

      He was Tosten Hollen in the 1895 state census. He was apparently a widower at that point. Living with him in Kerkhoven Twp were: Even, 19, Halvor, 18, Christofer, 16, Anna, 14, Ole, 11, and Berthine, 8.

      Spelled Halen in the 1905 state census, Hollen in the 1900 census.

      In the 1910 census he is Tosten E. Hollen (indexed as Foston e Hollen), 64, divorced, living in Kerkhoven Twp, Swift County. Living with him are his children Even T., 33, Berthine, 23, and Ruby T., 12. Tosten came to the U.S. in 1866. His brother, C E Hollen and family, lives next door.

      In the 1930 census, he was a widower living with his son Ole, and Ole’s recent wife, in Kerkhoven Twp. Living next door was Tosten’s (apparent) brother, Even Hollen, and his wife Minda (born Minda Ovidia Solberg) and son.
