    Notes 
    • Ole and Ella were married in a Lutheran ceremony witnessed by Olaus Nyseth and Gusta Nyseth. Ole’s occupation is listed as printer and his residence as La Crosse.

      Worked for a newspaper in LaCrosse and in Duluth. Cora says his family is still in Duluth (or was in the early 1980s). He had "quite a few kids."

      Cora said that she'd met two of the daughters, “Mariam” and Gertie, and that "they were nice."

      Census enumerator Charles Engelstad visited Christiana and Ole on June 5th, 1900, when the two were living on 9th street (or 8th street: it is the last entry for 9th street) (but Cora said it was a corner lot) in the 17th ward of the city of La Crosse. In the census form, Christiana’s and Ole’s birthdates are confirmed as March, 1838, and January, 1874, respectively. Ole is shown as single with “printer” as his occupation. He is shown as having been unemployed zero months in the past year. Ole is shown as having been born in Wisconsin; Christiana as having been born in Norway. Both could read, write, and speak English.

      Ole is shown as a clerk, and living at home, in the 1893-94 La Crosse city directory. In the 1895-96 city directory, and in the 1897 city directory (as O. C. Jr.), Ole’s occupation is “comp Daily Press.” In the 1900 city directory, O C Anderson Jr is “comp Press” and resides at 603 S 8th with his mother, Mrs. Christiana Anderson. The 1901-02 city directory lists him as a printer and still living at home with his mother. The 1905-06 directory lists him as a machinist for the “Leader & P.”

      In the 1905 Wisconsin state census, he and his family are living in the 17th ward of La Crosse, not far from his mother. Also nearby, apparently, is the St. Anna Orphan House. The family consists of Ole C. Anderson, 31, a printer, Eda C., 22, his wife, and Herbert C., 1. Ole is a printer and he rents his home.

      Registered for the draft in Duluth on September 10, 1918, as Ole Christian Anderson. Living at 2108 West Superior Street. He was a linotype operator with the Duluth Herald. His employer was A.C. Weiss. He listed his nearest relative as Ella Anderson, his wife. He was tall, of slender build, with blue eyes and “grayish” hair.

      In an obituary for his mother, Ole Jr. is indicated as still living in La Crosse at the time of his mother’s death. Apparently Ole C. didn’t stay too long in La Crosse after his mother died. In the 1905-06 city directory, Ole and his family were first listed, in print, as living at the rear of 941 Market Street. Then, in successive handwritten revisions, the addresses are 603 S. 8th, 925 Ferry, and, finally, 2106 W. Superior, Flat 3, in Duluth.

      Living in Duluth at the time of the 1910 census at a house they rented at 2106 West Superior Street. The household consists of Ole C., 35, Ella C., 26, Herbert C., 6, and Marion C., 4. Ole and Ella had been married for 7 years and she had had two children, both still living. Ole is a printer for the newspaper.

      Ole C. Anderson is listed in the 1910 Duluth city directory as a lino operator for the Duluth Herald residing at 2108 W. Superior. The 1915 entry is similar except that Ole’s occupation is listed as “comp” for the Herald.

      The 1917 Duluth city directory records Olaf C., comp Dul Herald, r. 2108 West Superior.

      He registered for the draft at the Sloan Building in Duluth on September 10, 1918, as Ole Christian Anderson. His address was 2108 West Superior Street in Duluth. His nearest relative was Ella Anderson of the same address. He was a linotype operator for the Duluth Herald and the name of his employer was A.C. Weiss. He was described as tall and slender with blue eyes and “grayish” hair.

      Living in Duluth at the time of the 1920 census (January 10th) at 2106 West Superior Street, near 21st West. Shown as age 44 which is inconsistent with the birthdate information we have. All children were still at home.

      In the 1930 census (indexed as Anderosn), the family is still at 2108 Superior Street in Duluth. Gertrude has left home but the other children are still single and listed at home with their parents although Herbert is designated “AB” for absent. Ole is still a typesetter at a newspaper.

      In the 1936 Duluth city directory, he is Ole C Anderson, a lino operator for the Herald Co. He and his wife Ella C live at 119 N 26th Avenue West.

      His death certificate puts his last address as 2530 West 2nd Street in Duluth. The informant for the information on his death certificate was Walter Johnson. Ole was still married to Ella when he died. He was a linotype operator for a newspaper. He died of a cerebral hemorrhage brought about by hypertension.
