    Notes 
    • An article in the Virginia Enterprise (2 Jan 1903) notes that “N. A. Thompson has gone to Superior where he assumes the agency of the Singer Manufacturing Co., succeeding Walter M. Thompson, who has been assigned to the management of the Duluth house.”

      Nels and his family were living at 119 East 7th Street in Duluth at the time of the 1910 census. Nels was an agent for the Singer Company.

      Nels was the informant for his brother Anton’s death certificate.

      He is listed in “The Valdris Book”, a history of the Valdris Samband published in 1920 (available on Google Books), as N A Thompson of Duluth. He was a member of the Samband in 1920 and had been since 1906.

      In the 1920 census, the family is living at 1820 East 7th Street in Duluth. Living with the family is a 75 year-old single woman named Anna _stad, born in Norway, andd shown as “aunt.” Nels is now a clerk in the post office.

      In the 1930 census (April 7th), the family is still living at 1820 East 7th Street in Duluth. Nels is still a postal clerk and Bessie, living with them and still single, is a public school teacher. Peter is also living at home, no occupation shown. Two days after the census-taker visited, Nels was dead.
