    Notes 
    • He should have been the heir to Skøre. Instead, 34/1 went to Bøye, the next surviving son.

      Brad’s notes, regarding conversations he had with relatives in Norway, refers to Ole as “Ole Ellingboe in the Cities.” Ole was a frequent visitor to the Ole and Albert Ellingboe farms in Lakeville.

      He may be the 22 year-old Ole O Ellingboe who arrived in New York and passed through Ellis Island.

      In the 1901 Minneapolis city directory, Ole is living with Jøger at 1425 East Franklin.

He was a plumber for Conner Brothers of 711 6th Avenue North in Minneapolis. He gave as his nearest relative Mary Bekken, sister, 6058 17th Street in Minneapolis. Ole was of medium height and build with blue eyes and reddish brown hair.

      In the 1918 Alien Registration, he was Ole Ellingbo, age 38, of Minneapolis.

      He is listed in “The Valdris Book”, a history of the Valdris Samband published in 1920 (available on Google Books), as “Ole Ellingboe Minneapolis.” He was a member of the Samband from 1902 to 1916.

      In the 1919 city directory, he is a plumber and boards at 4428 44th Avenue S.

      Ole, of 4428 44th Avenue in Minneapolis, was listed as the nearest relative of Harry Olson Ellingboe on Harry’s draft registration.

      Seemingly related here is Bertha Ellingboe, b. ca 1896, in Norway, a tailoress, who lives with Conrad and Mary Hanson of 4420 43rd Avenue S. in Minneapolis. Conrad Hanson and Henry Hanson both work at a bag factory. (That Bertha is, apparently, #10692, the daughter of Anders Tollefson and Ingeborg Olsdatter.)

      In the 1948 Minneapolis city directory, he is a mechanic for MGL. He and Bertha live at 3209 20th Avenue S.

      He is the Ole Ellingboe, age 69, arriving in New York on September 20, 1948, aboard the S.S. Stockholm which had departed from Gothenburg, Sweden, on September 11th. Ole’s address is shown as 3209 20th Avenue South in Minneapolis. His U.S. passport was #159040.

      He died leaving a widow Bertha who was the informant for his death certificate. According to that death certificate, Ole was a plumber/steam fitter for the Minneapolis Gas Company. His death date was qualified by “found” so he may have died at his residence, 3209 20th Avenue South, and Bertha may not have been living with him. His cause of death was coronary disease.
