    Notes 
    • According to Ed, Ole lived his entire life on the Ellingboe farm.

      According to Evey, Ole came “from Valdres, Norway, with his parents and three sisters in 1881 when he was six years old.”

      Evey goes on to say: “When Pa and his parents and three siblings had come from Norway in 1881, they had lived in Wisconsin for about two years and then had come to this area, living for three weeks with an aunt of Pa’s father [Sigrid] until another baby was born [Oskar], and then in a sod house. (Ma told me that the aunt had written to Pa’s family saying, ‘Why don’t you move here, because from our place you can see the spires of three churches.’ Just what the meaning of that was, I’m not sure.) A year after the move, my grandfather, Ove, built the house. Albert was born there and lived there all his life.”

      At the time of the 1910 census (May 10th), Ole and Rosie were living in New Market, near, or perhaps on, the same farm as Ole’s mother, Betsy. Ole, 34, and Rose, 21, are shown as having been married only 3 months. Rose would have pregnant with Ed at the time of the census.

      Ole registered for the draft on September 12, 1918. He is described as of medium height and build with blue eyes and brown hair. His nearest relative is “Rosa” Ellingboe.

      In the 1918 Alien Registration, he is Ole Ellingboe, age 42, of Lakeville, Scott County.

      The Census taker visited the Ellingboe farm on January 30, 1920, and noted 44 year-old Ole, 30 year-old Rose, 9 year-old Edwin, 7 year-old Arthur, 4 year-old Beulah, and 2 year-old Oscar. Rose and Ole were noted as having Norwegian as their native tongue and being able to speak English. Ole’s occupation was noted as “Farmer General Farm.”

      Shown as having emigrated in 1882 in the 1930 census.

      In the 1940 census, Ole and his family lived in New Market Twp. The household consisted of Ole, 64, Rosie, 50, Edwin, 29, Oscar, 22, Helen, 19, Ruby, 15, Evelyn, 12, Jeanette, 4, and Albert Battin, 79, a lodger who was retired and blind. Ole and Rosie had education through 8th grade, Edwin through four years of high school, Oscar through 8th grade, Helen through one year of high school.

      Ole and Rose were naturalized as citizens on November 10, 1937, in Minneapolis in U.S. District Court, 4th Division. At that time, his address was Route #2, Lakeville. Ole is described as 5’8” tall, 160 lbs., blue eyes, brown hair.

      According to Evey, Ole died of an apparent stroke.

      His obituary (from an unknown newspaper, spelling errors corrected):

      Obituary of Ole Ellingboe

      Ole Ellingboe of Lakeville, age 72, died at the Sanford hospital at Farmington, Jan. 5, 1948, at 9:30 a.m. after an illness of only five days.

      He was born at Valdres, Norway, Sept. 25, 1875, of parents Ove Ellingboe and Beret (Helle) Ellingboe. At the age of six years he emigrated with his parents and three sisters to America. They came to Manitowoc, Wisconsin, where they resided one year. Then they came to Lakeville and settled on a farm in New Market township, Scott county, Minn. He attended the District 66 school, which was built by his father. This is the same school attended by his children. His father died at an early age leaving him to be his mother’s main stay to help support his younger brothers and sisters. He was confirmed by the Rev. Quammen and has been a faithful member of the Christiania Lutheran congregation ever since.

      On February 12, 1910, he was united in holy matrimony to Miss Rose Mathilda Thompson at Bethel Lutheran church, Ward township, Todd county, Minn. They went to live on his farm, which was a part of the old homestead, and have made their home there ever since. To this union eight children were born, namely Edwin and Helen (Mrs. Clarence Campion) of Minneapolis, Arthur and Ruby (Mrs. Frank Pool) of Farmington, Beulah (Mrs. Lloyd Luckman) of Rosemount, and Oscar, Evelyn, and Jeanette at home.

      He leaves to mourn his departure his wife and eight children, two brothers, Oscar of Leavenworth, Kansas, and Albert of Lakeville, who was critically ill at the hospital; five sisters, Mary (Mrs. E. H. Lee) of Omak, Washington, Thea (Mrs. George Tonsager) of Lakeville, Anna (Mrs. John Selmo) of Solway, Minn., Clara (Mrs. Alvin Liggett) and Miss Olga Ellingboe of Waseca, besides seven grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, and a host of friends.

      He was preceded in death by his father and mother and also a sister and brother who died in infancy.

      Funeral services were held Thursday, Jan. 8, at one o’clock at his home, followed by services at West Christiania Lutheran church with burial in the adjoining cemetery, Rev. Hoff officiating.

      Rev. Hanson from Webster also spoke. The Webster Male Chorus sang three beautiful songs accompanied by Mrs. Walter Snesrud {#14775}. Pallbearers were Ole Ellingboe’s three sons, Oscar, Edwin, and Arthur and his three sons-in-law, Lloyd Luckman, Clarence Campion, and Frank Pool.

      Many beautiful sprays of flowers were received. One of these were from the V.F.W. Post 210, and one from the 109th Fighter Squadron. Innumerable memorial gifts were received which was evidence of his many friends.

      He was a kind and loving husband and father and will be sadly missed. Blessed be his memory.
