    Notes 
    • Jan/Terry have his birthdate as March, 1872.

      Supposedly had relatives living in Boston. On the ship’s manifest, he is referred to as “son Carl O. Lundberg, Boston” as the relative that his parents and three youngest living siblings were to meet in Boston. His sister Emma is also mentioned as meeting the family in Boston.

      The Södra Hestra Household Examination for 1891-1897 (p. 209) shows him leaving for N. Amerika on October 6, 1891.

      Terry says: I found Oscar Johnson leaving Sweden in year 1892 and arriving finally in Foreston, Minnesota, where my family lived and my grandmother Annie Josephine was born. It is near Milaca, Minnesota.

      In the 1899 Superior city directory, and going by the address shown for him and his family in the 1900 census, he is Oscar Johnson, laborer, 1205 N 3d. In the 1900 city directory, he is shown as still at the same address and working as a laborer for the “St P and W Coal Co.” He is probably then the Oscar C. Johnson in the 1901 city directory who is a laborer for the St P & W Coal Co and lives at 510-1/2 Bay.

      Shown in the 1900 census, and the 1910 census, as having come to the U.S. in 1890.

      In the 1905 state census, he and his family were farming in New London Twp, Kandiyohi County, Minnesota. He was Oscar J. Lundberg, 30. His household was Mrs. Tilda Lundberg, 28, Esther, 8, Sophie, 4, and Nellie, 9 months. The family had been in the present location for 2 years. Oscar claimed to have been in Minnesota for 20 years and Tilda for all 28.

      In the 1910 census, he and his family were farming in Grove City, Swede Grove Twp, Meeker County, Minnesota.

      Terry’s check of the border crossing records: On June 14, 1911, Oscar Johnson and his father Johan August Lundberg cross the border {going from the U.S. to Canada} at Emerson, Manitoba by train. Their destination: Englefelt, Saskatchewan, which is the closest railway station to the Naicam area at that time. On the same train is J. J. Quaid, husband of Annie Rebecka Lundberg but his destination is Edson, Alberta. At that time it was a small town.

      In the 1916 Canadian census, as Oscar Johnson, he, Tillie, and family were in St. Peter in Humboldt, Saskatchewan (39, 19, 2, St. Peter). The household consisted of Oscar, 45, Tillie, 43, Esther, 19, Frieda, 17, Sophia, 15, Emma, 12, Josie, 9, Myrtle, 6, and Charley, 5. They had come to Canada in 1910. (Although we know that Carl was born in Minnesota in March of 1911.)

      Terry says that Oscar was denied Canadian citizenship but no reason was given. The 1916 census shows that Oscar became a Canadian citizen in 1915.

      Terry says: Oscar Johnson and Tilley homesteaded west of Naicam about ten miles and moved into Naicam later. They had the cafe and rooming house above across the street from the railway station near the bank on the corner. (The cafe was on Railway Avenue according to Claudia.) They moved east of Naicam in the country later and had some land there. In later years they moved to the City of Saskatoon, Sask., where Tilley died and was buried in the Naicam Cemetery. Oscar Johnson also died in Saskatoon, I think.

      According to his obit, Oscar had resided in Saskatoon for 15 years when he died in 1962.

      According to Terry, Harlen Vollum, Oscar’s grandson, remembers Oscar Johnson arriving by bicycle from central Saskatchewan for a visit to his North Dakota daughter and family at age eighty plus.
