    Notes 
    • After her younger sister Ann had been in New Market for a year and a half, helping their grandmother Rangdi on the farm, Julia decided it was Rose’s turn. Rose recounted to Evey, “I had been sick. I went to school, and then I got the measles and my eyes got so bad, amd Ma wanted me to go down there then, because she though that would be nice for me. I had to take over the baking and everything, you know, when I came there. I was seventeen. I stayed there a year and a half then and then I came home again. I met your dad, then and he came up and visited us up in Clarissa. And then I went back in the spring to work for Knute. I worked another summer there and then I went home, and then I got married.”

      To put Rose’s story in perspective, her sister Ann would have gone to New Market from Clarissa in the summer of 1903 and stayed in New Market until the early spring of 1905. Rose would have gone down to help her grandmother in, probably, the spring of 1907 and stayed there until late summer of early fall of 1908. In the spring of 1909 she went back to New Market to work for Knute (#1687) and went back to Clarissa in the late fall of 1909. She got married a few months later.

      According to Evey, “Ma’s name was Rose though people always called her ‘Rosie’, probably because in Norwegian her name would have two syllables: ‘Ro’se’ (with a rolled r) and the e pronounced like an i. Due to a law which was later changed, Ma lost her citizenship when she married Pa and had to apply for citizenship later on with him.”

      Rose M. Ellingboe, age 28, of Lakeville in Scott County, was included in the 1918 Alien Registration.

      How Ole and Rose met, according to Evey: “Grandpa Thompson and family, including my mother, were by that time living near Waubun in Mahnomen County. When my mother, who was the oldest, was about eighteen years old, she went for a visit and to help out her grandmother Thompson near Webster. While she was there, she met a young man named Adolph Davidson (#13416) who lived near there. Adolph was a friend of my dad, and consequently my mother met him through Adolph. (It seems she once told me that she went out first with Adolph, so I think that is the way it happened.) Adolph and his wife, Inga, were their friends all their married life. Interesting side note: Inga (#11920) was a cousin of Annie, later to be Albert Ellingboe's wife.”

      “My dad, being one of the oldest, built a half mile west of the old house when he married my mother. My mother sold our farm and moved into Lakeville, shortly after Pa died.Not far from there, was the area around Eureka Center and the East and West Christiania churches.”

      The oldest child. Of Rose’s four sisters, none lived on farms after they were married. One lived in Colorado, one in Illinois, and the other two in Minneapolis. Two of the sisters were childless, one had two sons, and one had only one daughter.

      Had to be “renaturalized” as a citizen because she married a non-citizen. This naturalization took place in Minneapolis, U.S. District Court, 4th Division, on November 10, 1937, with Ole’s naturalization. In the naturalization certificate, Rose is described as 5’4” tall, 110 lbs., blue eyes, light brown hair.

      Rose went to Europe in the summer of 1958. Her trip included a visit to Sweden to daughter-in-law Anna’s relatives. In a letter to Sweden in September of 1958, Anna says: “Ed’s mother is back safely, she had a nice trip. We never thought she would go to Sweden! Thanks to Olle for he was kind to drive her to Östersund. She told us of Olle and Gösta how kind they are and how fun she had with you all. She has now seen Sweden but she don’t know anyone there.”
